Journey to India: Day 2.

Coca-Cola sponsored my travel, accommodations and other expenses for my trip to India.

read Day 1.

The time zone change (10.5 hours ahead of my Central time) was brutal and adjusting in only a matter of days has been near impossible. If you are following me on Instagram, Facebook or Twitter (handle @MomSpark on each!), you know that I have already traveled from Bangalore to Jaipur with quite a few experiences along the way. Saying that, I wanted to still produce an update for each day of my journey, so I present to you Day 2.

Day 2.

Arrived at the DFW airport VERY early for good measure. I was fortunate enough to be flying business class, which granted me access to the business class lounge, where I could stay until my flight departed.

The lounge was quiet, spacious and clean. The amenities were nice – wine, coffee, pastries, even warm soup – but what I loved most about the space was the huge window that hosted a view of planes taking off.

I fantasized about where each plane was going and if the passengers were headed to a new location or if they were coming home after a long journey elsewhere. The visuals in my head were calming and I felt a sense of gratefulness that I was fortunate enough to be experiencing an adventure of my own soon. Not just any adventure, either, but one that would take me to the other side of the world. I was so very grateful.

The flights were long, a total of over 20 hours of travel, but I made it. I made it to India.

Stay tuned for Day 3 (read Day 1 here) of my journey to India and follow #5by20 for updates from myself and the group. and  if you missed it.
