Japan Day 15 - Heading back to Guam

By Leo

And so the journey ends.

We've spent two amazing weeks here in Tokyo, and today we head back to Guam.

Our flight is at 10 a.m. at Narita airport, which means we have to be there between 8 a.m. and 8:30 a.m. to check in our bags. Which means we have to get on the Keisei Airport Express train by 7 or 7:30 a.m. at the latest. Which means we need to get on the subway by 6:15 or 6:30 a.m. to get to Ueno station for the Keisei train. Which means we need to head out of our apartment by 6-6:15 a.m. Which means Leo had to wake by 4:30 a.m., which he did. Or I did. My grammar is mixed up by this point.

Chloe and Justin fell asleep on the Keisei train, which was pretty nice.

Rain and Maia looking forward to getting home.

Eva, Seth and Noelle on the train.

We bought a couple extra duffel bags to pack the things we bought in Tokyo -- remember that we only brought carry-on backpacks on the way to Tokyo. So on the way to the subway and airport, I was carrying 3 big duffel bags (one on my back as a backpack, and one on each shoulder). It was a great workout. The journey to the airport was a rushed and rough one. We should have started earlier. :)

The plane ride wasn't too bad, actually, except there was one Japanese boy of elementary age who threw the mother of all tantrums, crying and screaming and throwing himself on the floor and rolling down the aisles ... all the way to Guam. The. Entire. Trip.

Other than that, the trip wasn't bad, though tiring. We got home and fell into bed. Actually, I couldn't sleep so I unpacked my stuff and reorganized my clothes in my closet.

It's nice to be home. :)
