travel plans

Hubby's preparing for his January 2009 travel. His travel plans includes attending the annual Pacific Telecoms Council (PTC) at Hawaii and with few days stop-over at their Japan office. Since last year, I've been contemplating (and wishing) of joining hubby on this annual business trip. I am just worried with the travel expenses. With a kid and me in tow, ticket fare and accommodations will surely double. You see, I've been dreaming of setting my foot in Japan. And as s I've blogged over and over again, I so want to experience walking in the streets of Tokyo, eat authentic Japanese food and visit Sanrio-land. Then of course, enjoy sight-seeing and shopping in Hawaii. Thus, given this kind of travel opportunity for hubby, we can save with the travel cost since he'll get his accommodations and airfare free.
Earlier today while hubby was busy watching the Pacquiao fight, I brought up the topic of possibility of joining him on his upcoming trip. I told him I was able to get quotes from PAL and Northwest. I've managed to get quote also from Hawaiian airlines. Airfare price ranging from $1300-1500 for RT. Really pricey, especially the forex rate today $50=P1. And this is for one person only. Of course if we will bring the little girl along, airfare will double. Making it more impossible for us to go.
Hubby brought up the idea that I can join his trip. But we have to leave the little girl along. It'll be hard for him to attend business meetings with me and Sam to think of. Besides as hubby pointed out, the little girl will not enjoy it so much since she's just four years old.
Anyway as we are talking about Japan trip, hubby mentioned that his Japanese boss recommended visiting Tokyo Disneysea over Disneyland. Much better and ideal for adults. Hmmmm...Tokyo Disneysea? Of course, never heard that before. Now it made me more curious. As I've surfed the net, I saw the attraction of Disneysea. Something different than the usual Disneyland fare. Made me more eager to visit Japan. Do check it out ...
As of today, No definite travel plans yet. I am still having second thoughts of joining hubby. If I go, will have to say goodbye to my supposedly new bag from hubby. Then of course the guilty feeling of leaving the girl behind. Haaayyy...if we only have bottomless funds, travelling will not be a problem.
