Travel Plans
dream destination
This looks like an amazing part of the world, even aside from the obvious tourist-drawing sights such as Machu Pichu.
Tokyo, Japan
dream destination
Japan looks and sounds like a country full of beauty and insanity... so should make a perfect trip destination. Will have to follow the advice of my former flat-mate Katzutaka and go give Tokyo a go.
Countries I've Traveled To
Languages Spoken
Hey I'm English what d'ya think? the laziest linguists on Earth!.., just English and a splash of French so far sadly :-)
Books you might find in my backpack
