Today Belle and Victor were having a rest day in, but as I was only staying a week I was heading out to make the most of my time in Japan.

We had never met in person so I was looking forward to meeting her.  Continue reading…

I had a talk with Chris and we decided to tell Belle, if sale flights came up with Jetstar to Japan, for the dates she would be going, that she could count me in. Fast forward to October and I got the email….. sale flights to Japan! Woo Hoo!
