long distance family reunion
My son and our DIL and grands are taking a sabbatical to Australia. Son will work in a hospital there for his contract period. When that is over they all will travel Australia and, pretty much, take a world wide tour. One of their stops will be Tokyo. On the way they will have only a four hour lay-over. But returning, a year later, they plan on spending four days there. I have a first cousin who moved there many years ago, got a good job, married and stayed. He is excited to have the first contact with back home family in all these years. I am excited for all my family members to be able to do this and meet each other. It will be an adventure and I have some apprehensions but, if I were younger and had the means, I would do it.
