Blogging from my phone

.Hey y'all!! I don't have the internet right now, so I'm trying this phone blogging out. I just bought a Droid phone and I love it, though I'm still kind of lost!

Has anyone else ever blogged from a phone before? It's kind of interesting.

My trip home was super long! I flew out of Djibouti at 1 am on Saturday morning and we flew 2 and half hours to Kuwait. Then there was a two hour layover. Then we flew 45 minutes to Bahrain. That was the easiest flight I've ever been on, I'm telling you. I fell asleep before the plane even took off, and woke up when the plane touced down in Bahrain. It actually confused me a little bit!

Bahrain was like another two hour layover, and then a 3 and a half hour flight to Sigonella, Italy. I had internet there, so I tried to catch up on as many of your blogs as possible, but of course, it was the shortest layover we had, at only an hour.

Next was the two and half hour flight to Rota, Spain. We didn't have internet there so we spent the entire time watching Kitchen Nightmares. That show is the Then finally! The flight back to Norfolk, Virginia! We arrived and were supposed to go to the barracks, but there was an entire base wide power outage, so we ended up staying at a hotel. We checked in at around 5:30 am, and I immediately took a shower.

I had to use hotel shower stuff because I had to toss.mine while in Africa, but I didn't care, I felt so dirty!! After that I went and ate breakfast at the hotel and called a cab to take me to Walmart!!! I walked into Walmart with the biggest smile on my face! Now I truly felt like I was back! Haha. I bought some things and headed on over to the Verizon store to activate my account, and finally join he rest if the world in owning a Smartphone! I bought the Droid X, and so far I love it (when it isn't confusing the heck out of me!!)

Later I went grocery shopping, and it was amazing!! I was able to get some of the yummy stuff I've been seeing on everyones blogs! ( hello Chobani! )

Well I am off to get some more sleep! Tomorrow I will try to find a wireless spot, so I can catch up on everyone!!! Have a great day!!

  1. That's a long trip! I'm impressed you wrote a blog that long on your Droid. I hate using my HD7 to write blogs because I thumb type and I have way more typos.

    Welcome home! Do you still have to stay near the base or are you completely discharged?

  2. Sounds like quite a trip! I can't imagine what it feels like for you to finally be home!

  3. wow! I bet it feels like a whole new world! I must frown though - iPhones are the ONLY WAY FORWARD. lol pleased you're back safe and sound!

  4. Wow, you're stopping in so many places! I've never blogged from my phone before. I can't wait til you're back!!! :)

  6. welcome back! I would totally go to wal mart or target first if I'd been away for awhile :-). How exciting you get to catch up grocery shopping- my favorite activity :-P

  7. Glad you had a safe trip home! You had to change planes so many times!! Yay! I'm excited for you to be back home!! :)

  8. I'm still living in the stone age... no internet on my phone. I just got texting a year ago, haha! So yeah, needless to say, no blogging from my phone yet. ;)

    Haha! I know what you mean about walking into Walmart and feeling like you are really back. Being surrounded by all those American products and American accents... definitely says "welcome back" :)
