No that is not a typo, I am in fact back in good ol' London. A couple of weeks ago when I arrived in Malaysia, I got some really sad news about my grandad which meant I had to fly home. Needless to say, this was very unexpected and definitely not the best circumstances in which to travel home, but I didn't think twice about it. If anything, this year has already taught me to expect the unexpected. Cheers 2014, but can you stop teaching me things now please? Thank you kindly. Obviously I'm gutted to be taking a break from my travels too, but I'll be getting into backpacker mode again soon when I fly to Japan later this month. It's always been at the top of my travel list thanks to all the amazing sushi, karaoke and green tea on offer, and I can't wait to experience it all. To be honest, this wasn't part of my itinerary at all at first, but after hearing amazing things from fellow travellers and discovering how cheap Air Asia flights are, I just had to make it happen. I know it's super expensive over there though, so if anyone has any money-saving tips or recommedations please send them my way. I'm gonna need 'em. But, until then I'll be embracing the English vibes and stuffing my face with marmite, tea, gravy, pickle and Babybels. Oh, how I've missed you.
