made it!

After a plane ride, a layover, another plane ride, a monorail and train ride, I'm back.

My butt hurts from sitting ALL DAY long. The weather was quite warm (about 60F) when I got off the 1st plane, but became chilly after the sun set.

The highlight of my day was this in my snack box...a milk chocolate dipped shortbread cookie from Big Island Candies.

It was nice to be home for two months. I got to spend some quality time with my parents, grandma, relatives and some friends.

Hopefully my luggage which I sent from the 1st airport comes safely tomorrow. Thanks Satoshi for letting me go home every year!

How come two plane rides?

Bea said...

welcome to your second home! It will feel unsettled for a few days for sure!

Thanks Rowena, Mari, Jenny, Nate & Bea!

I had to take two planes because United doesn't fly from Kansai any more, Nate, since I am a frequent flyer with them, I flew out from Narita.

Take care everyone!

Ah... a 2 month trip back home. And now you're back 'home' too! Enjoy the reunion with hubby and waiting to read more of your adventures!

Why didn't you fly ANA? Last year I flew on ANA and credited my miles to my United account. They're code share partners.
