  1. Tokyo was interesting, they have really nice and colorfulful money, the only bad thing was these snacks that seph bought that I personally don’t consider them the tastiest food out there. The airport was cool, had a lot of nice stuff.

  2. At the Hong Kong stopover, I decided to be adventurous and buy some dried kumquats. Unfortunately, they weren’t as good as I was expecting. They tasted like eating orange peels. Natalie and Kalyna loved them though, so there you go. The Hong Kong airport was really nice and clean (and empty).

  3. The Hong Kong airport was so nice, the architecture (aka the ceiling) was so cool to look at. I bought some ice cream that tasted really good. Also a bunch of us got lost at the airport looking for food but me and Veronica found the food court and honestly expecting to be a McDonalds there (there was) but wasn’t expecting to be a Popeyes. Also I don’t know what Brit and Seph are talking about, those dried kumquats tasted great. I’m buying them when we are back at Hong Kong.

  4. I tried paying careful attention to where we went in Hong Kong because I was supposed to travel alone when I cane back since I’m extending my stay. My mom was so certain I’d get lost in it, but honestly, its just two big lines. Don’t scare me, mom! The Hong Kong airport was probably better than most malls I’ve ever been to. They had almost every high end designer name store like Gucci, Chanel and Rolex. I don’t think anyone goes to an airport and says “hmm… I think its OK for me to spend 3k at this store that has nothing to do with my travels…” It kind of blows my mind! Not many food places were open when we got to Hong Kong but I got this cool mango juice that was labeled with only “Mango”. Super edgey, right? On another note, Natalie and Kaylna’s taste buds are malfunctioned if they thought the kumquats were good. I don’t think anything like that should be edible!

  5. There is nothing that beats the feeling of moving your stiff legs after 15 hours. Also, since I had the middle seat, I did not move to go to the bathroom. That being said, the pee at Hong Long might have been the best pee in my life. Hong Long was great! The architecture of the airport was incredible but I felt weird because most of the employees had face masks. It kinda made me feel like I had some disease. But Hong Long was cool regardless. Now onto Manilla!

  6. The Hong Kong airport was so nice, it was like a mall. Well the shop there were better than a few malls in Toronto. I bought pizza in Hong Kong, that was horrible decision, that pizza did not taste good at all! Nut the flight from wasn’t ad it was short and sweet. One of the smoothest landing i could but in my books.

  7. Regardless of what appeared to be a long flight, it wasn’t too bad. I enjoyed the wide variety of movies and TV shows that the airline had provided. During this time I also talked to student and teachers. At this point I was slightly nervous because, I didn’t know if the children would gravitate towards us, and I didn’t want to leave my family for the holidays. On a whole, every component was worth it and i had an awesome time.

  8. The flight ended up being pretty good. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. I did some homework and watched some movies and it went by pretty fast!!

  9. The stopover at Hong Kong was fun, their airport is so big and nice and easy to get lost in. After looking around for food and realizing the currency exchange was too much to process after the 15 hour flight so I decided not to get the $80 HK pizza combo. Instead I tried to look for something more familiar and ended up going on a little adventure with Marvic, Jaidan and Wendell only to get somewhat lost and return with water and a KitKat. It’s still so unreal to me how far we’ve come and the adventure is only beginning, Philippines here we come!

  10. Flight wasnt to bad. I got to watch movies i havent has the time to watch and same with shows ive been wanting to watch. But i guess that is what happens when you have a 15 hour fligth. Haha

  11. ?As you can see I’m just about done reviewing everyone of the emails, thank you again and again!
