From July I’m going on a 3-month vacation. I’m flying to Japan and visiting friends in Osaka.
Then I’m taking the ferry to Shanghai. (It takes 2 days by ferry) and visiting a friend there.
Then I’m doing some sightseeing around China (pandas and terracotta warriors).
I’m joining up with a small group tour that starts in Beijing and goes for 3 weeks. We take the train to Mongolia and stop in Ulan Baatar for a couple of days. Then onto the Russia and the Trans-Siberian Express. A couple of stops along the way to Moscow and St. Petersburg.
After that I’ll be exploring by myself, travelling through Eastern Europe – the Baltics, Romania, Bulgaria and lots of other countries.
It’s a while since I’ve gone on a long trip, so I’m really looking forward to doing some more travelling.
