We're Off!

The Air Pacific counter at LAX - we checked in just in time!

After a fun-filled day in L.A. with Sara's uncle Mark, we are off to New Zealand via Fiji.

Good thing we arrived to the airport three hours early!  Although our e-tickets said that the flight would depart at 10:30 pm, when we arrived at the ticket counter we found out that it actually would depart at 9:30 pm.  What?!  When we asked why the actual departure was an hour earlier than our tickets, the agent said matter-of-factly, "that is just because of daylight savings time."  What?!

Travel Tip #1: Don't fly airlines that fail to account for daylight savings time in advance (after all, it does happen every year!)  But if you must, be sure to arrive very early.



  1. First near crisis averted! You two are off to a great start!

  2. We are thrilled that you are in NZ and on your way to the adventure of a lifetime!
