We live in Central IL so going to Los Angeles takes us abut 6 hours including one stop.
How long does it take you to get to LAX and do y spend the night in LA or you just connect all the flights until you get to Bora Bora?
What about in the way back?
Is it too much to travel 6 hours to go to Lax and wait a few hours in the airport until the next flight to Bora Bora? Or is it better just to go the day before and also spend the night in LA in the way back?
In the past, the longest trip we took took us only 12 hours total and that was manageable.
