Advance Party En-route
The "Advance Party" made up of Tony Bostock, Annie Whitney, Jan Davies & Rowan Davies are now en route to Spain, via Japan & Amsterdam. With an extremely fortunate recommendation by an Australian friend living in Tokyo, (thank you Anthony Dowling!!) we had the opportunity to go to a traditional Japanese Restaurant outside of Narita town and following dinner had the chance to walk through the most beautiful Japanese Temple, which was an wonderful experience for all. To top off the evening, we were then chauffeur driven back to the hotel by the owner of the Restaurant in a beautifully maintained XJ8 Jaguar, with the "Advance Party" travelling in nothing but style.
This morning we head to Narita Airport where we board our flight to Amsterdam, en route to Barcelona, where the real fun begins, Ole, Ole!!
