I got my leave approved!!! Great news - we are going to go back to Japan and then continue on to Europe and the UK! We are going to do about a week in Japan, and 3 weeks UK/Europe. We are doing a coach tour of "Christmas in Berlin and Eastern Europe" and the rest I haven't decided yet. I have been to Berlin before but it was years before the wall came down so I am really intrigued to see the changes. The other places on the tour I've never been to before so it will be new for me too. Looks like Christmas Day will be in Vienna. Hoping to get up to see relatives in Yorkshire, and we want to see some of London and Paris. And then we will need a holiday to recover! Not so good - I just can't squeeze a trip to WDW in as well - gave Gareth the choice of Japan or US and Japan won this time. But we will be back never fear, there's always next year.... So excited - and now in full-on planning mode!
