After several weeks of indecision, today I booked my plane ticket to Tokyo in January to see the Tokyo Great International Quilt Show!! Most of my dilemma was around the $1100. cost for the plane ticket. Knowing this is my sisters last year in Japan and that it would be my last chance to go for awhile, I was desperate to figure out a way to go, that wouldn't cost so much.
Last week, while home with pneumonia, I decided to check to see how many airline miles my son had. I discovered if I transferred a few thousand miles from my account to his, I would soon have enough miles for a reward ticket for under $200!! Thanks wonderful son for the plane ticket!!
I'll be meeting my sister that lives in Okinawa and my niece for the week in Tokyo! I'm so excited and looking forward to going back again this year. We had a wonderful trip last year...see earlier posts for many wonderful quilts from that show. Now it's time to plan some day trips for the days that we are not at the quilt show or in Nippori fabric shopping...ok bloggers...any ideas? Also, would love to meet for coffee any fellow bloggers that are going to the show.
