We're Coming, King!!!

Here we sit at Narita Airport, in the NWA lounge, waiting for our flight for the LONG return trip to Basel via London. We woke up this morning at 5:30 a.m., checked out by 6:30 a.m., ate a quick breakfast in the Peninsula Tokyo restaurant, boarded the shuttle bus to Narita Airport, pulled away as multiple members of the Peninsula staff bowed and waved, and...

...here we sit.

It's going to be a long, LONG trip.

We arrive late today in Basel. Or...is it yesterday? OR...is it tomorrow. I'm not sure... However, one thing I am sure of is that this was a GREAT trip.

Oh, we had naysayers...

"Why do you want to go THERE for your anniversary?"

"It wouldn't be my choice..."

"I don't think I'd have chosen Japan for a two week vacation."

My advice? Don't listen to the naysayers.

We loved it! We'd like to return!! AND...this is a place where we could see ourselves living!!!

There will be lots of pictures really soon...shortly after we return...as soon as I figure out what day it is.

kirk - Thanks.

michael - Nice "Guano Apes" reference. And yes...I was. I towered over everybody, and I amazed the school children.
