The Adventure begins!

By: Gabriel Alarcon

The day began when our six travelers and their families headed towards the Albuquerque International Sunport Airport. As we arrived, we checked in as well as arranged our luggage. We said our final goodbyes, and shared our last hugs.

Our first flight was from Albuquerque to Phoenix, Arizona. We got to experience our first takeoff of the day, as well as our first glimpse of the beginning of a long and tiring trip. We arrived at Phoenix at approximately 5:30 and quickly made our way to our next flight to Ontario, California.

We peacefully arrived in California after a quick 50 minute flight and decided to walk to the next terminal instead of taking a shuttle; to lose some time. During our 1/2 a mile walk to the next terminal, we talked amongst ourselves about our feelings towards the trip and emotions of the upcoming 14 hour flight to Taipei, Taiwan.

Towards our last few hours in the U.S, a few of us enjoyed of a small restaurant across the terminal and and ate some delicious burgers, fries, and sandwiches. The end of our American lives are coming to closure, as we are now ready to embark on the beginning of this wonderful adventure towards the Balinese culture.
