A little less than a month from now, we will be off for a vacation to attend a wedding in Japan. We didn’t really plan to travel this year if my brother in-law didn’t decide to get hitched. We’ll only be in Japan for two weeks since Pristine has to attend school and we need to keep her absence to a minimum.
It will be another long haul flight for us. The hubz has to travel 2 weeks ahead for work, leaving me alone with parenting duties aboard the plane again, just like last year. Oh well, if Pristine isn’t an easy traveler, I would have sneaked in a live rattlesnake in his luggage.
We’re taking a different airline this time – a quest to try all the different airlines in the world. Okay, “ALL” sounds too ambitious so let’s say “most”. We’ll be taking Singapore Airlines this year with route: Dubai -> Singapore(10 hours) -> Singapore -> Narita (7 hours). Total travel time is 17 hours, excluding about 2+ hours of layover when changing planes in Singapore. Then we’ll have to travel for another 4 hours by car to my in-laws hometown.
Can you imagine how many movies we’re going to watch on board and how many in-flight meals I NEED to skip (I do not like in-flight meals)?
Nevertheless, it is autumn in Japan and I look forward to the less heat and warm colors around.
Now if only I can find warm clothes somewhere in my closet full of summer shirts…
