Japan, booked!

Today Carolyn and I headed over to DaVinci Coffee to do some vacation/wedding planning. We have a set of five days at the end of September and beginning of October that are national holidays and thus days we don't have to be in the office, and we decided that we should get out of town for that weekend.

Luckily we're strategically located a short flight from a place that both of us have always wanted to visit, JAPAN! I've felt for a long time that Japan was just out of reach. We don't have many weekends long enough to make getting there practical, and we haven't wanted to use a full vacation to go there because it's a very expensive place to visit. Now we've got our chance, and this September we'll visit a place we've always wanted to go!

So it's cool that we're going to Japan in September, but we've both been saving money pretty feverishly and it's exciting to get to spend a fraction of it on something as cool as an international trip. This is this first time Carolyn and I have made a really big purchase together, and it was 100% cash. How cool is that? Pretty freaking cool, I say. We've spent the day learning about Japan online, Carolyn ordered some travel guides, and we're both more excited about this than I can adequately explain. Hooray!
