Taking Off

Well it’s been a little over a year now since the idea of skiing in the Japanese Alps has come into my world. And now here we are at O’Hare in Chicago. We have just finished our airport food court meal. Really airport food is not so bad. In fact, airplane food isn’t that bad either. In fact! the best airplane meal I’ve ever had was leaving Malaysia. Really great rice and curry!

Best part of flying has to be the taking off and landing. Those who really hate flying think that this is the worst part. But for me and Wayne, the moment when you feel the plane actually rise up into the air is the most exhilarating part. You are officially flying and off to somewhere new leaving behind the monotone life we go through every day.

We have all 78 pounds of our skiing gear and clothes and passports in hand. I apologize for not writing in two weeks but I have been preparing! Updates of our adventure to the Japanese Alps are coming soon!
