We are currently based in Christchurch, New Zealand. Our next trip is to Asia. We’ll be exploring Japan by rail for two weeks from Tokyo to Osaka. Then we’re off to Seoul for five days and Shanghai for two days. Our plans for the end of the year are very much up in the air. We love to book our travel at the last minute so we can stay as flexible as possible.
