小年夜和除夕就在全日空往東京及台北的飛機上度過了。

We spent the Chinese New Year's Eve on the flight from New York to Tokyo then Taipei.

紐約直飛東京的班機,在降落時遇上一小時45英里的颶風,飛機輪胎碰地時,機長查覺不對又直接將飛機拉回上空,這輩子還沒試過如此直線上升的感覺。機上的所有人都緊張驚恐加不舒服,機長做了許多說明,在20分鐘後研究風向之後再度降落,這次雖然也是重度搖晃但至少平安著地。也算是難忘的除夕了。

The landing in Tokyo was rough. We ran into 45 miles per hour wind during landing. After severe turbulence and the plane wheels touching ground for 3 seconds, the captain decided to pull all the way back up in the air to try for another landing. I've never experience such a quick ascend back in air in my life... Needless to say, every one was shocked, nervous and extremely uncomfortable. The captain did some brief explanation, apologized, and came up with a strategy to land again after 20 minutes. It was crazy turbulence again, but at least we landed safely, a memorable Chinese New Year's Eve.

抵達台北時,只差半小時就要進入金雞年,雖然沒趕上和家人一起的除夕夜晚餐,但回到台北,看到爸媽,喝了一碗媽媽煮的湯,還是很幸福的。累趴了,明日再寫,看到了住家四處的煙火,大家都在喜迎新年了喔!

It's 30 minutes away from Golden Rooster year when we finally arrived back home. Though we missed the New Year's Eve meal with the family, but seeing my parents both well, having a bowl of my mom's homemade soup, it's just happiness. Absolutely tired, but now seeing fireworks around the house, we're in the new year! Until tomorrow then.
