Hello! It’s been a bit insane recently with a few personal family issues I’ve had to take care of. Nevertheless, I’m back and better than ever.
It is also with great delight I share with you my recession busting plans for my holiday 2009. I’m only going on one, but what a holiday.
Yes, two weeks away, 3 days in Bangkok in Thailand, the rest of the time in Tokyo!
The reasons (other than I’m smitten for the culture of Japan) is because that one of my good friends (Vicky, if you’re keeping score) is out there at the moment, and has been for a couple of years. There was talks of her leaving Japan later this year, so if I am to go to Japan on the (relative) cheap, I’d have had to have gone this year.
Plus she convinced me that I’d be great in Japan. “The women’d love you out there!” she said “I’m sure you’d find one.”.
Not that I’m reduced to going across 9 time zones to find a missus, you understand (though it has been a long time since I got anything more than a hug). But it did play on my mind, so fuck it (not literally), I’m off there!
Thailand is odd as it’s basically a stopover, to say that I’ve been. I’m planning a frame of currency from the countries I’ve been to (most expensive part so far – 5 Lats, which is around £6), so it can be a cheap and easy way to at Thailand to the mix!
Anyway, that’s my rather exciting travel plans. What about yours? Are you going anywhere?
