It was an early morning leaving the Maldives, we had to take a speedboat to leave the island (we had to make a spit stop for Sarah lol). We arrived in the Maldivian airport early because Emily had to catch a sea plane for her extended trip so we got lunch in the airport while we waited. From there we left and arrived in Sri Lanka and had to catch a plane to Hong Kong. One the way back we encountered some problems in Hong Kong were we got delayed for our longest flight. We expected to only have a 45 minute delay which turned into a 6 hour delay because there was issues with the aircraft. We finally caught our plane to LAX but when we arrived they changed our flight so that we were not going to be able to get home for another day and half later than expected. So we had to hurry and book all new flights to St. Louis so some family and friends could pick us up from there and drive us back home. After flying and traveling for three solid days, I was in despite need a nice home cooked meal and hot shower. All and all, I am so blessed to have been able to travel with such an awesome group of people that I feel like I made many lifelong friendships with!
