Where I stayed
My cousin drove the luggage and three of the four kids to Narita airport while I took the JR train with the boy (he wanted to go with me and since he was still 5 years old - nudge, nudge, wink, wink - I didn't have to pay train fare for him). I still think I could've sat in the back with the boy on my lap but my cousin wouldn't have any of it. Anyway, I took the regular train so it took me 3.5 hours to get to Narita and less than 2 for my cousin. She won the race. If I paid 3 times the price, I would've beaten her. :P
Good thing we left at 1 pm because it was 4:30 by the time I got to the check in area of the airport and closer to 5 by the time I got my boarding passes printed up (thank goodness for online check in
Got settled in the plane and ate most of our snacks (I was starving...) and was happy when they served dinner (choice of seafood curry or chicken pasta in a cream sauce). Breakfast was either scrambled eggs and hashbrown potatoes on a bed of sauteed tomatoes and eggplant (I think) or "okayu" (same as congee). I forced the kids to shut off the TV and rest for a bit; I think we all managed to get 2 or 3 hours of sleep. Overall, a good trip. Nice to be back home, though. :) Trevor is due back tomorrow (Friday 13th) from Australia.
