Hellllooo, it has been ages! I am so sorry but I have been so busy with work and all. Found out that shift work kinda sucks after marriage. Sometimes I don’t get to see W for a few days cos I am on shifts and he is on permanent nights. We are still trying to adapt to the whole shift thing but we are coping well so far. Okay so lets talk about our honeymoon! I know its been 5 months odd hahaha but nak jugak lah!
We had only the day after the wedding to pack and get ready for our trip. We have never travelled together before so I was feeling excited & nervous! We finally finish packing on the night before and we had an early flight to catch so I did not sleep at all cos I was busy preparing. My parents sent us off & off we goooo!
The total flight time was about 24 hours with 2 transits. We stopped over at Tokyo & Seattle. Both transit times were about an hour each so it was still okay. W was stopped and screened at Seattle cos biase lah USA. With his janggut and all, confirm kene. So due to that, we missed our connecting flight to Seattle but luckily they arranged another flight not too long from our scheduled flight.
Reached San Francisco at about 2pm and my best friend picked us up. She drove us to our Airbnb apartment and day one was mostly resting, settling down and fighting jetlag. We rented just a room in an apartment in SF. The guy who owns the apartment was super nice. He was working during the night so we did not meet often. We did not spend much time in the apartment as we were usually out the whole day and be back late at night.
Met bff & husband for dinner that night and they showed us around. Surprisingly, it was pretty cold in SF, but so nice lah. Aircon weather. The next day, we explored SF via Hop on and off bus. Not too bad that we managed to find places on our own. Hehe. Plus so proud of us for using their public transportation! All with the help of Google Maps of course. Hahaha.
Union Square was the shopping heaven in SF but I controlled myself!! We did not do much shopping as we had 2 more places to go and we did not want our luggages to be heavy travelling from one place to another. Knowing me kan. Hahaha. The following day, my best friend drove us to the airport early in the morning and flew to Las Vegas! That will be another post!
