In 15 days’ time, I’ll be taking off on a four months long trip around the world. I’ll be hiking and travelling my way through Japan (March-May), the United States of America (May-July) and the Netherlands (July). I’ve been planning this trip for a long time now, since I came back from Japan for the first time in August 2007 (the photo on the right was taken near the Tsurugaoka Hachiman-gu Shrine in Kamakura), and have taken a long leave from work to accomplish it. What this means is that from March 10th you can expect a long pause in my semi-regular updates.
I am not dead :)
If you’re a reader who lives along my path and want to meet up for a beer and a lively chat, ping me via the contact form. I’ll be reading my emails every once in a while, so don’t worry if you only get an answer after a few days.
If you want to read about my trip, I’ll be posting regular updates to my new travel blog.
