Shirl: Thoughts & Shots
Rowan: Paroxysms

Shocking Shots

We have now completed all the immunizations that are required for our trip.  Those include rabies, polio, tetanus, hepatitis A, hepatitis B, Japanese encephalitis, meningococcal meningitis, and typhoid (the only oral one).  We really got wiped out by the typhoid, which required 4 doses 2 days apart.  We discovered that one gets scars and should use alternate arms to decrease the pain of the inoculations. 

And speaking of pain, Rowan visited both the dentist to repair a loose cap and the endodontist, who finished a root canal this week.


The Race Begins

We are starting to prepare and discover a travel consultant, Pam of The Art of Vacationing, whose mission in life is to help people use the airline miles they have worked so hard and paid so much to accumulate.  Whereas our efforts yield two enhanced economy seats fro Los Angeles to Sydney, Australia (our proposed first stop), she contacts our airline (British Airways) and discovers another way to do it.  So we are off to Tokyo in First Class on American Airlines on June 16, 2011, and we will stay there for 9 nights, and then we travel business class on Japan Airlines to Sydney on June 27.
