We both had Thursday off, but man was it hectic. It was all about buying last minute travel necessities, getting the house clean, getting our hair did, and a million other errands. Then we stayed up late figuring out what was getting checked vs carried on. But that didn't dampen our excitement!!
Now to the present. Today is the big travel day. Mother in law is awesome for taking us to the airport. Then it was a quick 14 hour flight (yeah flight) from ATL to Tokyo. We were on an older 747 without the personal tv screens (yes I'm spoiled), so we made due with a 20" TV about 8 rows ahead and a 40" projection screen that was a bit lite. Believe it or not, but I actually liked the food on the plane. I don't know how many times we disturbed the guy in the isle seat to get up and walk around, but we appreciate him! He's Canadian (via Alabama) whose going to Japan for the first time to go to Yokohama and the Nissan home office for business.
