Just booked up. Flying to Osaka near the end of july, spending 15 nights in Japan then flying from Tokyo to Bangkok and having 30 days in Thailand.

Going to make sure I pop to Cambodia and Laos this time too. Laos in particular I want to go to. Apparently you can do this thing called tubing where you float down the river on a tyre or something and the bar owners hook you in, sell you a beer and then you float off again. Sounds like fun. And they sell opium shakes everywhere too apparently, a bit more relaxed than Thailand.

I don't know yet. Will probably only spend about 10-14 days between the two though so won't have much time anyway.

I've got about 4 days to kill by myself before a few days skiing in the alps.

Anyone familiar with this neck of the woods?

TIA.

madrid with my ex, spent about a week there just getting taxi from park to park in the day, had relaxing drinks outside bars, then fancy meals on the night and at a few old-fashioned traditional spanish restaurants. cant beat retiro park.

Even though I have been to some nice looking places, I've never liked holidays. For me, coming home feels like the holiday. I like my own bed a lot.
