One down, two long ones to go
After packing all night and getting only two hours of sleep, we made it to Chicago. Time for our extra-long layover. My wonderful dad got us a room at the airport Hilton for the day, and we are ever-so-happy to sink into their down comforters and sip on their restaurant's Bloody Marys. Might as well relax while we can! Our next flight is to Brussels-- 8 hours. Not too bad, right? But 3 hours after that, we head Brussels to Nairobi--11 freaking hours!!! Those who know me well know I have two fears in life: airplanes and tornadoes...so, 19 hours on a plane? Bring on the anxiety meds!!! In the meantime, I hear a Bloody Mary and a delicious breakfast calling my name. Appreciating creature comforts while we still have them! Thanks to everyone who sent us messages this morning at the beginning of our journey. Your support and kind words mean a ton to us!
