What a way to start a vacation! So we got a call last night from our friend Yuki in Tokyo, warning us of a typhoon about to pass through Japan. Woah.
We called American Airlines and sure enough–our flight was cancelled. We’ve promised our kid Blake that we’d take him to Japan since he was 7 years old, so to keep that promise, we made a hundred phone calls and managed to find a flight to Hawaii on Hawaiian Airlines. Halfway there!
Many more calls. Many defeats. But finally found a flight from Waikiki to Narita airport. Phew! Trip salvaged. We can keep our promise.
Now on the plane. Only a typhoon can stop us now!
Stay tuned. 🙂
