99 days till Tokyo

Hello everybody,

I hope you had a great weekend. 🙂

I promised to write more abut planning and now I have the perfect opportunity. We will go to Tokyo again but this time only for a week in November.

Last year, my husband and I had the adventure of our lives. We went to Japan for about three weeks and we fell in love with the country, the people, the culture and a lot more. A few months later we had wanderlust and because of that we decided to go for a short trip to Tokyo again. During our honeymoon we went to Tokyo, Nara, Osaka, Hiroshima, Kamakura and to Nokogiriyama. It was an amazing journey.

One of my favourite cities in the world

So in May this year we booked a hotel and flight tickets for Tokyo. 😀 We will do some catching up on sightseeing and we will enjoy a little bit shopping plus really good food.

I want to shop mainly stationery this time. Last time I was restrained and I didn’t buy much of what I wanted because I had sensory overload. Really overload. (And I am usually not that kind of person who goes crazy by an overload.)

As a planner girl, I do the best I can and plan the trip. 😉 But this time I would do it a little bit differently. Normally I would pick up a book (travel guide) and stick it with notes… a lot of notes. And my husband would do the same. After tapping ca. 10 books with maybe a hundred notes in each book, we would have a coffee and discuss the places and ideas. But not this time, I watched a Youtube video „100 Things to do in TOKYO, JAPAN | Japan Travel Guide by kimdao“ (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HYSMJ-lM2t0). I love her videos. It was about 100 things you can do in Tokyo. I wrote down every single place, food or shopping idea. We did a few things from this list last time and there are a few things we don’t want to do. We talked about the ideas. It is a first list and I think we will find a few more places we will or at least want to visit.

my other type of list

My wisdom of the day: Habits are great, but trying something different or new can change perspective.

Love to you all,

Chrissi
