Welcome to my blog! I’m going to give blogging a serious try, so this hopefully is the first post of many. The reason for starting this blog is my upcoming trip to Japan. No ordinary holiday, because I will stay in Japan for about three months.

I will arrive in Japan on the 30th of December, just in time to celebrate New Years Eve in Tokyo. Early January I will visit Seoul for a few days and after that I’ll return to Tokyo to start a language course. I think learning the Japanese language will already be quite time consuming, but people kept asking me about a blog. Since I like to write, I decided to give it a try.

It will probably be a combination of posts about what I am doing in Tokyo, interesting to people back home, and posts about Tokyo and Japan in general, interesting to other travellers. I decided to write in English because of the second category. If it turns out that visitor statistics only show hits of family and friends, I might switch to Dutch.

Not much more to write about yet, so check back after the 30th of December. You can also subscribe to my blog to receive notifications of new posts by clicking on the ‘follow’ button somewhere down below. Hope to see you back soon!
