There's no place like Japan for cherry blossom season and spring break, and such was definitely the case for Lauren Sanchez and Jeff Bezos.

The couple jetted off to the beautiful nation for a week of frolic and fun with Lauren's three children also in tow, and now at the top of the week, it's back to the States and back to work.

However, the journalist and former anchor on The View alluded to the fact that her transition back into normalcy may not be as easy as you'd expect on her Instagram Stories.

The 54-year-old shared a selfie of herself rocking a white tee with a full-length black leather maxi skirt with a gold chain belt, adding that while she looked great on the outside, jet lag was reeling on the inside.

"Dancing my way through jet lag (ok not really)," she joked in the photo, and added another snap, a skyline shot, in which she wrote: "The jet lag is real." She shared in another image that she was getting herself back in shape with sleep supplements from Kourtney Kardashian's wellness brand, Lemme. Given that Tokyo is 13 hours ahead of New York, we can see why!

Still, it seems like their trip across the globe was a welcome escape, joined by her fiancé and Amazon founder Jeff, 60, plus her children Nikko, 23, Evan, 17, and Ella, 16.
