Vacation... Long Version: Chapter One
Hey! This is going to be a story like post, split into 12 parts, each blog post one part, detailing our vacation…enjoy reading!
Chapter One: Saturday September 7, 2013
We arrived to JFK international airport at 10:25 am… having flown all night, and taking into account the time difference; we basically had no energy to do anything. All I wanted to do was collapse on a couch somewhere. My friend, G, and her brother picked us up from the airport in New York and took us to her house in South Amboy, New Jersey where we stayed for most of the trip.
After arriving to her beach house, I immediately took a shower to get the airplane smell off of me and then we were on our way to Menlo Park mall for lunch. We went to one of my favorite restaurants, The Cheesecake Factory.
After a delicious meal, we walked through the mall, and for the first time in my life I was not in the mood to shop. All I wanted was a couch to crash on…but it was too early, and with the jet lag, I was bound to wake up at midnight if I went to sleep. And G wouldn’t let us sleep until it was actually bed time…
So as a change of scenery, we went to another nearby mall, Woodbridge mall. We only lasted a few hours at the mall and by 6pm we were more than ready to leave and collapse somewhere.
Keep in mind I was up for almost 43 hours by 6pm…I couldn’t sleep on the plane…
By 9pm, I was acting like a zombie! I couldn’t keep my eyes open any longer…my best friend, N, already went up to sleep at around 8, and I stayed up talking to my friend, G, who we were staying with. I was literally falling asleep as we were talking…so I excused myself and went up to sleep.
I swear the minute my head hit the pillow, I was in a deeeeepppp sleeeeepppppp….and already dreaming about our trip the next day to NYC!
Goodnight and stay tuned for more exciting events that will take place during the trip…
