We are sitting at the Brisbane airport, relaxing in the Qantas lounge before our nine hour flight. We are excited to share our ten day adventure in Japan with those sitting fireside. We opted to upgrade to business this trip, which was an enjoyable and relaxing experience, though I am not sure I signed up for the typhoon inflight entertainment enroute.

Our trip begins with three days in Tokyo. We are staying at a hotel near Ginza, nothing fancy, just a place to rest our weary head at night. Marcus has planned a fairly tight itinerary. I am just along for the journey and rest from a very intense five months at work. We are anticipating great weather and hoping to climb Mt Fuji in a few days. We have a relaxing stay in Kamakura and Hakone- a very picturesque part of Japan. We are also exploring Takayama and Matsumoto, new adventures for us both. Marcus has lived in Japan before for four years, whereas I have only visited once. It was a wonderful experience before and I look forward to enjoyable experiences again this trip.

Sitting here, quietly observing and reflecting- it never ceases to amaze me, the volume at which some choose to speak. Meanwhile, others, like me, are trying to sit quietly in their own world and enjoy solitude. Airports are interesting places, they welcome all kinds of people from different backgrounds and dispositions. People’s behaviour and emotions are so varied, as they commence or continue on their respective journeys.
