Epic fail!! Thanks Cathay Pacific! They canceled the last flight out of Bali to Hong Kong screwing over 450 people, distributing them to three different crappy airport hotels. I knew if I waited until the next day as they were demanding, I would never get out of there. I went full commando, figured out a flight plan and waited until I got the ticketing agent to put me on a red-eye to Melbourne back to LAX. It took 10 hours longer but I made it home.
It's hard to believe that in a couple of hours, I am going to be leaving this wonderful paradise and leaving for home. In about 36 hours, I will be trading in my swimsuit for my business suit. This has been an amazing adventure that I have learned a lot from and I come home a changed person. Good bye Southeast Asia!
