As we discussed on “Suncoast Morning” quite a bit before I left Sarasota, I’m spending July and August announcing water ski shows at a theme park named Huis Ten Bosch in Sasebo, Nagasaki, Japan.


Throughout the summer, I’ll be posting about various aspects of my trip—insider scoop about the shows, travel to and around Kyushu, a visit to a Nippon Professional Baseball league game. (Go Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks!)


I’m on the plane to Tokyo now, just about to take off. My first entry will be about my first experience flying on a Boeing 787 Dreamliner, but I have 15 hours of “research” ahead of me before I’m ready to write it.


Here’s to safe travels!
