The World Cup trip that never was
Alice, Brian, Patrick, and Yorick will join me for a 10 day excursion to Japan! This will be their first trip this far east. For Brian he's read about it, studied the culture, dated a girl but has never BEEN there. Well, it's time. Alice, Patrick, and Yorick, well, they went to Teikyo Post University with me and know all about the people, but the country... little to nothing.
For me... well, I'm looking forward to my return. It's been 4 years since I left. 4 Years. Wow. The last time I was there France won the World Cup and I felt my love for the game of soccer return to me. Now I'm in my 3rd year of coaching I've fallen back into PLAYING too! Whoa yea! My legs and the right of my mind, body, and spirit have seen the pitch again and it feels GREAT! If only there was more time to play. Yes, I want to play again. Ha, what a great feeling.
Back to this trip thing. I should have been to and from Japan already, but some changes happened which allowed for Alice to join us which has it's plusses and minues. The minuses... I missed out on the World Cup - the primary reason for going to Japan. Alas, Alice is going now which is all good. Tremendous even. Kazi is in for one helluva vacation.
On a totally different note. I've found someone to spend time with over the past couple months that's a blast to chill with. Yup, ice cream, 6 Flags, random adventures, movies. It's all good. She's away at the moment, but as I have not written in a while I thought it best to write about the positive side of the dating world. Well, it's time to head to NY.Let the traveling begin. I'm ready for the 14 hour flight! Ohhhh yes-sah...<- meaning -> out
