Fying Sydney to Narita

This time things were smoother – no changes to flight plans. But funny how other things pop up. \you know when you are checking in a two groups of about 100 high school kids goes to the Group Check-in Counter and you wonder where they will be seated?

Well when I chose one of the 2-seaters at the back of the plane, it did not say ‘you and your seat buddy are the only adults in the 30 rows at the back of the plane’. Having said that – Japanese adults sleep anywhere, especially in trains. And these kids have learnt well as they all went off to sleep before the plane was taxi-ing out from the Gate.

About TonyJ2

I live in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. I started writing stories about my trips to Japan largely to be able to print them out for my Mum to read. Now it has got a bit out of control. After nine trips, 100+ posts and another 200 in rough draft, my irregular postings on Having a Ball in Japan will go on for a few years yet. Having a Ball in Japan is not just a bunch of travel photos, and picks up my interests in the history and culture of Japan, emergency services and disaster management, as well as hours travelling by railways big, small and tiny. Awareness to Action takes the emergency services and disaster management theme deeper into experience and resilience. Effectively Awareness to Action is my professional blog. My partner and I have been lucky enough to do a fair bit of travel both in Australia and overseas. Escaping the Nest chronicles our times in United States, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and soon to be Ireland. Tony
