Inspiration, Travel

Where am I off to next?

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!

      I think the snow will be magical but I must admit I can only take so much cold…. Next trip let’s go in Spring or Autumn! :)

    OMG! I’m so glad to find your blog. I love reading travel blogs with a mix of other stuff and I found everything I love all in one place. Gosh! you’re going to have an amazing time. I have traveled a lot during my life because of my dads job. But it’s like a dream. I lived in Tokyo for 3 years and reading you post makes me want to go back so much. You definitely motivate me to save for some traveling now :)

      I am so glad to hear I’ve motivated you to travel Matin, and I am extremely jealous of your time living in Tokyo – what a wonderful experience! :)
