Flight Home

Our flight home seems like it was so long ago, but it was only 2 1/2 weeks ago!! All in all it was pretty uneventful, especially considering we changed our flight and came home 2 days early. We had to do a little seat juggling once on board because Alan was not able to book our seats together, but on both segments people were more than happy to switch with us so we could be together. I'm happy to report that Emily did really well on the flight, except for about an hour of the 11+ hour flight from Tokyo to Washington Dulles.

Alan and Emily in the United lounge at the Taipei airport.

The Taipei airport had this cool display of all these Oxen. I'm not really sure what the story behind them was/is but I thought they were really cool. (I have pictures of all them, about 12 or so, but I thought I'd spare everyone and just post this one picture!!). of the best things about flying a US based airline was being able to get a Diet Coke!!! In my opinion Coca Cola Light is NOT the same as Diet Coke!!

The nice people we swapped seats with took this picture of the 3 of us!!

Now that's the way to travel!! I love that "I've arrived" t-shirt what a cute idea. I wonder if the oxen were because its the Year of the Ox?

Brady has the most amazing smile!
