Joys of Travel


We were all so excited last night for our holiday back to Minnesota, as we finished packing and getting everything put together.  Our three wake-up calls started happening at 3am, just 4 hours after we were able to get Little Miss M to sleep.  She woke up with a smile this morning when she realized where we were headed though! 

Luggage was picked up at 3:45am promptly and our Maxicab was waiting outside the lobby.  It was a nice drive going past the Flyer and Marina Bay Sands, seeing the streets lit up for the Grand Prix Race that starts today. 

Get to the airport, unload and notice how incredibly long the line is.  Oh well, at least we are Business, so we can go in the short line...or not.  It isn't moving at all, finally glance up at the board and notice the big yellow notice box: 

Flight Cancelled

WHAT!? You have to be kidding!  Typhoon in Tokyo, airport is closed and all flights have been cancelled.  We get on the phone and try finding another route ~ there is one, but it will cost an additional $2100 each. Looks like tomorrow it is! 

Home again, home again and the sun is still not up.  Looks like we will try again tomorrow bright and early.  We were so looking forward to having a couple days, before our busy weekend filled with weddings.
