FIRST Things First...

We are on our way to Japan!

Currently, we're in the FIRST lounge at Heathrow waiting for our flight to Narita Airport in Tokyo, and I must say that it's pretty nice. The flight from Basel to London arrived early, so we have a couple of hours to kill. But, no worries; plenty of snacks, pink champagne, and gin & tonics on hand to pass the time until we board our flight to Tokyo.

Flight time to Tokyo? Not sure...something like 11 or 12 hours. Maybe I'll be able to get Mrs. TBF (or one of the flight staff) to walk on my back so that I'm fresh upon arrival. See? I told you this was a "dream" vacation.

Not sure if I'll have much of a chance to blog in Japan, but...I'll try my best. I'll also try my best to not sing the "...domo arigato, Mr. Roboto" song by Styx - I've been forewarned by Mrs. TBF!

You will not be able to get that song out of your head until you drink about 20 beeru, find a karaoke bar, and make your Japanese friends sing it with you while giggling hysterically.

At least that's how I remember it working.

You guys have a safe flight and a wonderful time in Japan!

BTW, domo arigato is quite okay to say, but I would definitely drop the Mr. Roboto ;)

See you when you're back?

What about the "turning Japanese, oh yes I'm turning Japanese, I really think so" song?

Mmm... fun with stereotype songs from the 80s...
