Breakfast in Tokyo, Lunch over the Arctic, Dinner in London
We have made it home, after a total journey time of around 20.5 hours from saying sayonara to our hotel in Tokyo to greeting two very happy-to-see-us-but-scared-that-we-abandoned-them kitties. Astrid had the nice surprise of a (free) upgrade on British Airways from Premium Economy to Business, and my 35-minute short connection in Helsinki was pretty painless.
To manage the jet lag, we took different tactics; Astrid stayed awake on the plane but then went to sleep pretty early local time back here in London, while I got a couple of hours of sleep on the plane and am hoping for a relatively normal night.
In the days ahead we hope to have some posts and photos from Japan. Overall, we had a really great trip to an amazing place. Now the only question that remains is how will we drag ourselves back to work tomorrow…
