Ben and I are currently sprawled out on an oversized couch in our suite at a beach front hotel. We went from sleeping on the airport floor to being on a legitimate vacation in what seemed like less time than it took for us to figure out how to use our high-tech butt-washing toilet (which is life changing btw). Due to a change in our flight date, base lodging was full so we will be spending our temporary lodging in this hotel.... How the hell did we get so lucky? Our hotel room has a living area, mini kitchen, beautiful bathroom and a balcony that faces the East China Sea. Although modern, it has it's fair amount of Japanese flair which include low-to-the-ground furniture, kimono style robes, Japanese appliances, and of course an extremely high tech toilet.
Even though it's raining our first day here (the rainy season just started) we are more than content watching Japanese television shows about cats and munching on avocado-flavored chips. We have 3 years to explore this place from tip-to-tip so there's no rush to do much of anything besides relax and start living life on "island time."
We're Kara and Ben, a Marine Corps family currently stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Enjoy our adventures, travels, photos, thoughts, and life together halfway around the world!
