The First Long Travel
It is first time that I traveled so long without my family , so my parents and relatives gave me a lot of advice on the travel. before I left China. They urged me to keep awake in the plane, keep my luggage in my vision, and not to talk to strangers. I wanted to follow their advice, but it was difficult, because it was a long travel, and it took me almost 15 hours from Beijing to Chicago. So I suffered myself from tiredness but keep my eyes open in the first several hours, but I fell in sleeping at last because all the people around me were in the dreamworld. After I waked up, the passenger sitting next to me began talk to me, and we knew each other, and keep connection until now. He gave a lot of help when I transferred the plane from Chicago to Washington D. C. He helped me fill out some paperwork, transfer my luggage to anther plane, and take me to the waiting hall where my flight took off. Without his assistant, I might miss my flight. So I think their experiences are useful, but the time changed, and everything changed. Therefore, what I will do if I meet the similar situation? I think I listen and pay attention to your advice, but not just do what they told us to do, and I make the correct decision according to the actual situation.
