Last year – March / April 2014 – I had a lot of time booked off work. Almost three weeks, thanks to Easter holidays. We had a CrumpXXXinJapan holiday planned for September and I was beyond excited about the prospect of showing the guys around my tied-for-favourite place.
I was trawling AirAsiaGo and I found an incredible deal – about $800 for a week of accommodation and return airfare to Osaka. I tried to convince my mum to come with me but she wasn’t able, so I set off on my first solo holiday. I had the good fortune to visit during sakura season and I knew I had to make sure mum and I came back for a visit in the near future.
We booked our tickets for this year in December, and I proceeded to spend my spare time arranging an action packed Japan adventure for mum and I to enjoy.
