Since this blog focuses heavily on travel I thought I would share my upcoming travel plans. I leave early December and am taking a 5 week trip. I have been saving my butt off for well over a year! (So much harder now than I am a student again).
First stop Tokyo! I am spending 8 nights here all up, there is so much to do. I am also taking day trips to Mount Fuji and Nikko.
Then on to Osaka where I plan to eat eat eat.
In Kyoto I want to experience the more historical and cultural side of Japan. I also hope to make a side trip to Nara to see the deers and temples.
Next it Takayama, located in the Japanese Alps and I can’t wait to explore the old town and soak in onsens with magnificent views.

Then on to Munich! Now this is my third trip to Munich but I am yet to experience the Christmas markets (such a novelty for an Australian. Snow! Mulled wine!) and also want to take a sidetrip to my lifelong love Neuschwanstein Castle.
I’ve been to Prague before but it was in Summer, super hot and overcrowded with tourists. I swore to myself I would return in winter.
I will be spending Christmas in London
Followed by a quick trip BACK to Germany. I know it’s not the most logical of routes but there is a conference to attend in Berlin.
Then I will be spending New Years Eve in Paris, ooh la la!
And a few days in Rome.
And finally a few days in Hong Kong on the way home!
I can’t even begin to tell you how excited I am, and this trip will provide a lot of new travel material for my blog as well!
I hope I have motivated you to start planning your OWN adventure or at least start saving for one!
