We’re Off to Japan!

We’re finally off! Well, not till tomorrow actually. We’re flying to Auckland tomorrow night, then the following morning, we’re getting on an 11 and a half hour flight to Tokyo! Any tips on what to do on a long flight, I feel like I’m going to get bored. Beyond that though, I’m so very excited! I have been talking about this to anyone who will listen for the past few months. We’re off to Japan!!

My second announcement is that I won’t be blogging for the next two weeks. Normally if I go on a trip, I would pre-plan posts, but this time I want to take a break. I want to fully focus on this trip, so I won’t be online much. Once I’m back though, you can expect a never-ending onslaught of Japan posts. Meanwhile, I will probably still be on Instagram quite a bit, as I will be sharing photos as I go along. I’ll try my best not to spam though!

See you all in 2 weeks!

  14. Have an awesome time. Can’t wait to follow along on Instagram. Tips for long flights – day flights are hard because I tend not to sleep as much but definitely watch those movies. Try to get some sleep and drink lots of water!! I don’t know if you & Rory are drinkers but I would recommend staying away from alcohol and soda drinks. If you are on Air NZ I think you can even play games on the screen with each other so that might be another idea for you.

    I am sure that it will fly by (no pun intended πŸ˜‰

    1. Thank you Sarah! We’re on a day flight heading to Japan, then on a night flight coming back. We’re going on Air NZ, and they do have entertainment screens. So we’re planning on watching a lot of movies. It is quite a long flight though, so we’ll have to do more than that haha!!

  15. Hope you and Rory have the most incredible trip! Looking forward to reading about it when you’re back! See you on Insta πŸ˜‰
