Arrived

I’ll post specifics later, but for now, here is a quick summation in bullet form

  • I thought I’d been the woman with the crying baby on the plane before.  Rhi took that to a new, embarrassing level.
  • Ellie, on the other hand, is turning into quite the model traveler.  I’m impressed.
  • It took almost the full 7 hours from Singapore to Japan to watch a 2 hour movie.
  • We got delayed leaving Japan for Narita, and consequently missed the initial flight to Boston.
  • We ended up overnighting in DC and it was the best accidental layover ever.
  • We are now safely in Boston.

Non-specific to the travel

  • I now appreciate the efficiency of Changi far more
  • I also now think of both sides of the road as “wrong”  when driving

    Welcome “home”. Your blog (your body, and your babies) are all still on Singapore time. Timestamp: August 3, 2012 at 4:02 am (but it’s August 2, 4:03 PM here in Bawston). We sent you an empowering tweet somewhere halfway into your journey. Sounds like it didn’t help in the least. Bummer. But you made it.

      Yeah, the time stamp is going to be off.

      I saw your tweet and was so touched. Thanks for it!

      I’ll definitely do a thorough post about it soon, but I’ve learned that much like having children, traveling with 2 is not 100% more difficult. It wasn’t a horrible experience, but it was more challenging than I expected it to be. And the layover was great.
