The adventure begins.

We have a 6 hour layover in the international terminal of the Vancouver Airport, so I am taking in all that is around me.  Such diverse people watching, it’s gold! I am also loving that I can listen and understand most of the conversations, announcements and writing here in my home country.  In a little less than 12 hours we will arrive in Tokyo and that comfortable world is about to change.  It was 5 years ago that I was last in Japan, so much has changed in those years, I’m a different person – I can’t wait to see how I have evolved as a traveler and what experiences that will attract. 

This was a VERY last minute change for us.  It was only a month ago that we decided to pack up all of our belongings and head to Japan for another winter season.  In that month we have done A LOT! It’s not until I’m sitting here that everything is finally coming together and that we’re moving to Japan!!!

We are staying in Tokyo tonight. Tokyo. Awesome.
