Been a bit distracted

So, I haven't been around a lot this week or have really done much reading or writing, something I really have to force myself to do before uni kicks off again. I'm one that probably hasn't been on a real holiday for over ten years. My holiday's usually consists of going to my country town home (where I end up cooking and cleaning for my father). Or taking a couple of days off and going to a theme park which I live 30 minutes from... so, that's a normal holiday for me.

This year is different. My brother and I decided we would be going over to Japan and when the airline we were going to book through had 50% off I couldn't resist and I started to make the bookings. We're not going till the end of November, but this week I've been planning all of our accommodation and finding up any other information that we need (apart from being our first major holiday, this is also our first international holiday and first time on a plane... hey, my parents were drivers and even drove 4 days to get across Australia for a holiday when we were young).

I know it's a while off, but at least I can relax knowing that we've got all the accommodation and airfares fixed. Now we just have to save up to be able to afford everything... plus a lot in spending money.

Now I'm going to tear my eyes away from Tokyo Disneyland (yep, I'm definitely making this a priority since I live NOWHERE near a Disney and just call me a big kid who wants to go there very badly) and get back to work.

So, what has everyone else been up to this past week?

I have been on a writing break for the past two months. Your holiday sounds amazing! Have fun with the planning!

First time on a plane? Here's a word of the wise from a seasoned pro ... it's uncomfortable and the food sucks, BUT getting on long distance flights is sooo worth the pain as you get to explore other countries :-D !

How cool that you get to visit another country! I would love to see Japan (though I am horrendously scared of flying...and zombies. The thought of zombies ON planes just may give me nightmares for the next two years). Have fun!! ;P
