241 days to go…

Hello again!

I’ve been so busy today, but not with much trip planning, unfortunately. I did look at pictures of the construction of Super Nintendo World though and it looks amazing. I can’t wait to visit there in October.

Also, remember the hotels I said I’d booked? Yeah, I’m back looking for hotels, one of the ones I’m booked into just doesn’t feel right. My gut feeling is not to go there, since there’s no reviews for it online. We’ll see how that all pans out though.

BTS had their comeback today too! How exciting. Not sure if I mentioned that I’m an ARMY or not, but their album (Map Of The Soul: 7) is amazing. If you have a few minutes, you should definitely check it out. Here’s the Music Video for the lead single → ON

That’s about it for me today, I may have a day of travel planning tomorrow so I have more to blog about tomorrow!

Speak soon.

244 days to go (still)…

Hello again!

We’re still in the same day (gotta love 1am blogging), but I’m here. I’m hoping to do this every night around this time just to give some insight into my planning and happenings everyday.

First thing that happened, my new phone case came. My first trip is to Osaka for two nights so I bought a phone case with the airport and the date I’m going to keep the hype going for the trip. This is the case:

After the case came, it did what it needed to, it’s time to start planning properly. So today, I put the flights I plan to use onto Google Flights price tracking. They’re pretty cheap at the moment but I do still need to save a little so I’m keeping my fingers crossed I can do that soon.

My trip is currently as follows:
London → Osaka – October 19th (landing October 20th)
Osaka → Tokyo – October 22nd
Tokyo → Seoul – November 1st
Seoul → London – November 17th

I did want to take the Shinkansen from Osaka to Tokyo, but it’s a little expensive for my budget and a flight is around half the price, so I learned today. Guess a flight will have to do…

I also learned today that I can get a 1.5 day ticket for Universal Studios Japan in Osaka, so I’m going to be getting that one since it’ll fit nicely into my trip there, and get a later flight on the last day in Osaka to explore a little bit then.

Planning is going well at the moment, hopefully it’ll start coming together more soon.

Speak soon.
