Happy New Years everybody!
It’s the start of a brand new year and looking back, the previous year had been truly amazing. From January 1, 2019 to December 31, 2019, Tomomi and I went from being half strangers to becoming life partners and even starting a blog together! Some may think that our relationship has progressed way too fast(and we think so too!), but it’s a decision that both of us feel very confident about.
While 2019 turned out to be beyond what we imagined, we want to make 2020 an even more unforgettable year. We plan on traveling to more places, doing some unique activities, and finally ending the year with a new beginning that’ll change our life forever. Read through to find out our life changing plans for 2020!
Snowboarding at a Hot Spring Village
In Japan, winter is not over until you go snowboarding.
For this winter’s snowboarding trip, we plan on going to the Kusatsu Village in Gunma, which is famous for their natural hot spring. Already looking forward to the hot spring in the snow!
Group Trip to Korea
This past year, many of my friends have constantly been expressing interest in going to Korea and it’s finally time to make it happen. I’ve never been back to Korea with a group of friends and I’m excited to bring them around!
Stay at the Marina Bay Sands
In March, there’s a huge dance event in Singapore called Radikal Forze and we plan on attending this year.
While we’re in Singapore, we plan on staying at the world famous Marina Bay Sands, at least for one night. We’ve always been curious what the hype is about and hopefully we can make this happen!
Camping in the Summer
This may come as a shock, but I have only been camping about once or twice my entire 26 years of life. Japan has some wonderful camping grounds and it’d be a waste to never go!
BBQ Inside a River
No, the title isn’t a type.
During our last trip to Nikko, we discovered a place where people can have a barbecue in the middle of the river!
One family brought an entire propane tank and grill and were just casually cooking meat with their feet in the river. This looked so awesome and we definitely want to try this in 2020.
Taiwan in December
This trip will also be dance related. There is a week-long dance event held in Taipei every December, called Taipei B-Boy City, and since it’s so close, we want to make this happen! We love dance just as much as we love traveling and we want to start actively going out to more events around the world.
Travel and dance?
Embark On Our Journey to the Americas
Our goal for the end of 2020 is to leave the comfort of our Tokyo home and go on a 6 month long journey through the Americas from the north to the south.
Our plan is to first fly to Hawaii and then start our journey on the west coast. From there, we will slowly travel up the west coast, go across Canada, and travel down the east coast. Then we plan on going through Mexico and explore the Amazon before reaching our last stop in San Paulo, Brazil.
Why start in Hawaii and end in San Paulo, Brazil? Why 6 months?
You’ll just have to stick around to find out!
