Wishful Wednesday - Vacation


I'm playing along with Kelsey at The Seattle Smith's for her Wishful Wednesday series.
This week's question is:

'I wish'...I was going on vacation tomorrow and would want to go...to Tokyo!

Why Tokyo?! How come not Hawaii? Or something warm, sunny and full of sand?!

Well, I have three friends living in Tokyo and I haven't seen them in years. Literally. Just thinking about this makes me want to cry. I miss them. We all went to college together and stay in contact as often as even possible even though this comes out to maybe six to ten times a year. One of them even has a little girl. She just turned four. I missed that.
Plus, well, having friends from other countries and cultures always fascinated me. I got to know the Japanese cuisine (there's a lot more to it than just sushi), language, custom, movies, fashion, etc etc. We even had our weekly visits to local Japanese markets...I loved it!
So, yes, if I could I'd be spending my vacation time in Tokyo (and maybe other cities in Japan, too, paying a visit to other friends as well). That is though if it was very spontaneous, like tomorrow, and if someone offered to pay for it! ;) Flying to the West Coast is cheaper! ;)

Until then...I keep looking at pictures...

...and I'll keep saving money. You never know when a good deal arrives and you've got time to go for what you wanted for so long. I miss you R., M. and K.!!!!!

It would be so much fun to go to Tokyo. Probably even better when you know someone because then you wouldn't get lost in the crowds and they could take you to the best places.

Interesting!! I'm sure Tokyo would be awesome!! I have some friends who are studying there at the moment and they are having an amazing time!!

I think Toyko would be a great place to go visit especially if you have friends there!!!!

I've always wanted to go to Tokyo! A friend of mine studied abroad there and had an amazing time. I have to settle for now for visiting friends stateside though--definitely much cheaper!
