We knew the journey to Oz would be brutal so taking a break in LA and another in Fiji ginormously helped. The 11-hour LA-Fiji leg made for a LONG time to sit on a plane. The Fiji Airways flight was packed but armed with an eye mask, a blowup neck pillow and a “white noise” app on my phone, I sacrificed style for comfort and did my best to try to sleep for most of the flight. It doesn’t help that you lose a day when you cross the international date line. We were still a bit discombobulated upon our 6am arrival but relaxing under sunshine and palm trees is the ultimate remedy for jet lag.
