Things are calling me away.
My hair is being pulled by the stars again.

With the decision to travel now absolute, next comes the question of where?
So my friends, the plan:
9 January, 2017
Fly Sydney to Mumbai
Join Ela and Abhi for some time back in India. First in Mumbai with his sister Shweta and her Bollywood producer husband. Followed by two weddings and a funeral in Udaipur with his parents.
22 January – 24 January, 2017
Fly Udaipur to Delhi
A short few days in Delhi by myself to visit Agra. Because you just can’t go three times to India and never visit the Taj Mahal.
24 January – 31 January, 2017
Fly Delhi to Tokyo
Some proper touristing with Diana
1 February – 10 February, 2017
Tokyo to Akita and Aomori
Northern areas of Japan to visit my uni friend Momoko.. Going to be snowing and COLD.
10 February – 15 February, 2017
Aomori to Okayama
So many old friends to visit in the city that was once my home town for a year
15 February – 22 February, 2017
Okayama to Tokyo
Seeing Tokyo as an adult, while visiting Chie and Eiji (my Japanese sister and brother in law)
22 February – 28 February, 2017
Fly Tokyo to New York
Big City fun and games with Sanjiv and Kelly (it’s about time I got to NYC!!!)
28 February, 2017
Fly New York to London
This is where things get tricky as all is dependent on my Irish citizenship approval… It could take 6 months, it could take less. Best to chill out and enjoy while I wait. I may be found Arting in Florence, loitering in London, continuing travels throughout Europe, or visiting family in Ireland.
Diana strikes again
A month with Jely, my little Cantik
Who knows?! My plans are open and I want it that way. Although, there’s no denying I may need to do a little work at some point…
Fingers crossed I will have EU citizenship, so the world will be my oyster… I may choose to return to Australia. Whichever way, I will be back in December 2017, just in time for Christmas.
