I’ve written many times in the past about how I love to check out McDonald’s around the world but rarely visit McD’s at home.
I have a few reasons for visiting McD’s when traveling. The main reason is that I love to see what local menu-items might be available in each country. The other reason is that a visit to McD’s for Lucas is like a treat. We don’t really go at home but he loves getting a toy. Also they usually have free Wifi which comes in handy when abroad. (Surprisingly, the McD’s locations we visited around Japan did not have Wifi.)
A little over two years back, Kim, Lucas and I headed to Japan. While I had always wanted to go to Japan (I’d like to go everywhere!), it wasn’t a place very high on my list. However, the country blew me away and the trip greatly over-exceeded any expectations.
With Japan being a leader in developing technology, one thing that surprised me was the lack of Wi-Fi in public places and restaurants.
ANA is celebrating their new Houston to Tokyo- Narita route which takes off on June 12, 2015 with a little contest.
The airline is looking for help to create a caption which will be printed on a special ANA umbrella. The umbrella commemorates the inaugural flight and will be given to passengers onboard as a special gift!
