So it’s almost midnight here in Tokyo so I think that’s like 10 am in Illinois. I have traveled to the future. This hotel is awesome. I’m so exhausted. Spent like 7 hours in JFK then a 12 hour flight. I was kinda happy we missed the flight to the Philippines because I couldn’t take anymore airplane for the day.
So first thing I did when I got here was had a free Japanese Buffet. And that has been about the coolest thing I’ve done so far hahaha and the ride here on the bus from the airport. Pretty cool. Didn’t think I’d be staying here but I’m glad for the bed and the rest. I wish I had time to take some pictures.
We landed in Tokyo around 9 pm Sunday. We missed our 7 pm flight to Manila so Delta airlines booked us a hotel and put us on a flight for the morning. This was my first time having to go through customs and all that craziness. It wasn’t too bad. We took a shuttle bus to the hotel, where we got a free meal. Then we pretty much just went to bed so we could continue our flights in the morning. Here’s some pictures of our short time in Japan.
With all these cool things we found just in the hotel, I can’t imagine how cool Japan is! Can’t wait to spend more time here someday!
Left for O’hare at 4 am for our 7 am flight. The flight actually left on time. Got to NYC JFK around 10:30 am. Found out our flight to Tokyo-Narita had been delayed from 1 pm to 5 pm. Super bummed because this would push back everything. We waited around JFK, scrambling to make arrangements to have our flight reservations to Boracay changed.
Ended up leaving JFK’s runway around 6:30 pm. We didn’t notice but our seats were split up on this flight. Luckily a woman opted to go to an empty seat to let me sit by Don. It was a 12 hour flight. I spent it first of all getting a meal of chicken and potatoes. I almost got sick and couldn’t eat hardly any of it because of the turbulence. I spent probably an hour with my head down trying to hold down whatever I did eat. The flight had a good deal of turbulence, at one point I was really afraid. The plane bumped around a lot and I got a huge bruise on my thigh from this.
Then I attempted watch Dear John. I got tired and took a nap. After waking up I decided to finish Dear John…which I thought was not a great movie. Each seat had a touch screen that we could watch movies, listen to music or play games on. I spent the next several hours playing trivia, sleeping, and watching movies like Avatar that I had already seen so I could sleep to them. Then the flight attendants gave us snacks, which consisted of an apple, bread, and a drink. After this we had about 5 more hours of flight left. I started getting very irritable. I wanted the flight to be over! So I slept more. Then there was about an hour and half left when we got served a breakfast of an omelet and fruit.
