Sorry for the long delay in posting, but the boys and I were away in Maui soaking up some sun! Sneaky, I know. ; ) I didn’t check email for the first four days of our holiday (oh, the luxury!) and enjoyed the rest. This is the first time I have ever flown somewhere warm during the grey months of winter, and I would happily pick another warm destination again next winter.
That said, I could have lived without the tsunami sirens and hotel alarms sparking panic throughout our final sleepless night. And packing at 2am, while the floors below us evacuated… that, I hope to never experience again. I think I perfected my praying skills that night. We are so thankful to be back home safe and sound. I actually felt guilty as we flew back home, because my heart goes out to the people that don’t have the option to leave the horrific situation in Tokyo right now.
