Japan Journal 2009
May 14th – Ready or Not, Here We Go
I am sitting here in the Billings airport waiting to board the plane to Salt Lake City that will kickoff our trip to Japan. As I sit here in anticipation for what lies ahead of me, I can’t help but feel a little nervous about the trip. The nervousness is not only stemming from the next 28 days that I will spend in a foreign place to which I have never been, but the 11 to 12 hour flight over the ocean is also contributing to my anxiety. I have been on airplanes before, but never for this long of a period of time. The way I see it, more time for something to go wrong. Yikes!! In spite of all the nerves bothering me, I am very excited. I know this trip is going to be the experience of a lifetime that I will never forget and I will carry many great memories of it with me forever.
