2 days to go

July 30th, 2015

We’re almost there. After a hell week of packing, cleaning, paperwork and bureaucracy, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel. We’re actually packed (more or less) and after our last day at work tomorrow we’ll be ready to set off on Saturday morning.

All our belongings for the next 18 months

Our first leg will be relatively familiar, down the length of Japan. We have some grasp of the language and feel at home here, so it’ll break us into touring life gently. It’ll allow us to sort out the inevitable niggles and problems before we venture into the less familiar terrain of South Korea and China.

The weather for our departure day is looking like it’ll rain, but there’s nothing we can do about that. First stop is Lake Shikotsu and then Tomakomai. From there we’ll take the ferry down to Hachinohe in Aomori which is on the main Japanese island, Honshu. Our next post will be from the road!
