Raft3r just learned the stopover for the next trip is Japan.
I always liked that country. Regardless of the ruthlessness their people did to my ancestors, Japan remains to be a dream destination.
By accident, I was able to have an extended stay in Narita a couple of years back. Raft3r is using the term accident in the strictest sense of the word.
This is what transpired.
I was on my way back to Manila. The plane I was on encountered some problems with turbulence.
At first, the flight became a little shaky. That was fine. Then we hit the big one. Jackpot! Raft3r practically jumped out of his seat because of the strong turbulence.
To calm the passengers, the pilot made an announcement that we were experiencing some minor turbulence and that we were making an emergency landing in Japan. That freaked people out more.
Upon arrival in Narita, passengers were escorted to a shuttle and headed off to Radisson Hotel.
While the airline tried to figure out what to do next, we were advised to spend an extra day in Japan.
Instead of calling home to advise the folks of the delayed flight, I headed off to a nearby bar and partied .
Man, was it a blast!
