Back to my first love.

I spent years dreaming of traveling to japan to explore the diverse culture. Finally, at 18 I enlisted in the Navy. A year later at my first command I went on deployment and made it to Yokosuka, Japan. It was like learning all your senses again. Everything around you was a new experience. Sadly, I only got to spend a free weekend there only to leave to finish my deployment. I vowed one day to return with a lot more free time to spend. I did, 10 years later. The feeling I first felt was renewed the minute I stepped off that plane.
