May 23rd - Journeying there
Spent about 4 days on the plane. No really - it was only 8 hours but it felt like forever.
We needed to sleep on the plane since we were flying overnight and losing 6 hours.
I knew Jesse wouldn't sleep but I can usually sleep anywhere. But not on this flight. It was impossible to get comfortable and people kept talking really loudly behind me - at 2am!!
So none of us slept at all.
All in all we figured we went about 30 hours straight without sleep.
"The entire day was travel. Fly, wait, ride, eat, ride, wait, ride. To make matters worse, the 12 passenger van we rented had tough plastic seats. You couldn't even sleep in the van. We all were loony and irritated. We were driving on the wrong side of the road. England didn't sell normal-tasting Coca-Cola. It was a long, long day."
