A few stressful weeks lay behind us. Busy schedules due to meetings, visa arrangements, and many goodbyes to friends and coworkers who are going home for Chinese New Year. Now it’s finally time for a well overdue vacation in Japan, even if it’s just for a week. I’m really looking forward to breathing fresh mountain air again and I’m sure that I’ll spend a lot of time outside despite the low temperatures. Thanks Vanilla Air for giving us the emergency seats and thus a bit more leg space!
