The Pryors In Vietnam: Our Trip Has Officially Begun

If you’re reading this right now, it means we’ve successfully boarded our plane, secured our seat belts, and have taken off into the air for Vietnam (I literally am going to hit “publish” on this as we’re taking off. :) The Pryors in Vietnam is a trip for the history books (well, at least our own family history book, if there is such a thing).

Our journey to foreign lands is a long one, stopping in Japan briefly after a 15.5 hour flight, just to embark for another few hours towards the Philippines. From there we’re to wait around in an airport for half a day before getting on another plane to fly to Vietnam. In total, the trip to Vietnam lasts about 34 hours this time, the longest period of travel I’ve had in my life. Hell, I was able to drive my car to Hollywood faster than that.

There to greet us will be Hang’s mother, father, her brother Tuan, and most likely a silver minivan that will no doubt fit a surprising amount of stuff. I don’t believe it’ll actually be able to haul everything this time though, since there are 7 of us. That makes 10 passengers total after we land. There will certainly be two cars this time. It will be roughly 2:30pm local time when we land, so the day will be at its peak in terms of how warm it is. It is, however, the cooler part of the year there right now, so it shouldn’t be that bad. I’ll try and capture “the good stuff” for you all on this blog, and I’ll be writing two or three blog posts every night while I’m there, at least for the first few days. I think the part I’m most excited about sharing is the wedding, obviously, because it will most likely be a totally different experience to anything I’ve experienced before.

I have no idea when I’ll share them… but you know me… eventually, they find their way here. Stay tuned!
