Gnome and company set off on the journey. It is amazing how much all airports look alike. Gnomes first airport was Boise. Everyone was bright and cheery despite the hour. We got to the airport about 6:30 in the morning, had a cup of coffee and waited for the plane to board.
We all arrived at San Francisco airport hours later Doesn't the air port look extremely similar?
Since we had to find the international terminal we had a couple hour layover. All of the shops seemed to be duty free in that part of the airport so nothing gnome found interesting. Soon it was time to board again
Eleven long long hours later were in Tokyo airport. Apparently they had a storm earlier in the day - the fringes of a typhoon - that had delayed departures This meant that planes were still at gates needed for incoming flights. Which resulted in our flight being changed over and over and over. Once again all the shopping was duty free shops and gnome and company weren't interested. In japan they drive on the other side of the road and the walkways in e airport our all going the wrong way. You could easily tell the Americans because they walked on the right instead of the left. But they had a lot of plants for gnome to hide in
Our plane to guam was delayed getting in and thus getting out of Tokyo because of the storm but we did finally leave. Arrived guam, went through customs, got a rental car, found our way, after a few wrong turns, at our hotel It was must after midnight local time and 27 hours since leaving the house. Gnome went to bed
