There & Back Again

Prospector: We're being sold to the Konishi Toy Museum in Tokyo.

Jessie: That's in Japan!*

There's nothing like coming back home from a trip- all worn out, still excited about the new sights, assimilating your feelings, and finally sleeping in your own bed.

I got back from Japan last night, eager to shower and slip into my PJs and sleep like there was no tomorrow. It didn't help that the flight was delayed- apparently the plane we were originally set to fly in was hit by lightning and deemed unsuitable for flight. Technically, I shouldn't really be complaining for the delay...

A word of advise: If you ever travel to Japan, I advise your trip be longer than one week.
Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka were beautiful in their own right. 

I am still in the process of catching up on blog reading and photo uploading.
Can't wait to share photos with you all!

PS- Baz Luhrman's The Great Gatsby trailer is out! Thoughts?! I seem to (already) be having mixed feelings about it, but am looking forward to it.

* I get random 'things' stuck in my head sometimes. This Toy Story 2 quote was one that mulling around in my head throughout the trip. Call me crazy- 'cause I pretty much am.


  1. Can't wait to see pics :) & OMG I also can't wait to see The Great Gatsby!


  2. I love the book of The Great Gatsby, so I'm so excited to see the movie! Also, sooo jealous that you went to Japan.. :( It looked like a wonderful trip!
