Go Skiing In Japan

‘Tis the end of the summer, the perfect time to start thinking about your next holiday. And naturally homegrown travel agency, Exo Travel, has got an idea to get you reaching for your credit card and booking time off work: a snow-cation in Hokkaido. Or, as other people might say, skiing in Japan.

Novotel Suites Hanoi

I often find myself wishing I could live in a hotel, but I suppose if five-star service and soft pillows became your day-to-day, it wouldn’t be as special. So I settle for those rare staycations, when you just need a break from it all and someone to take care of everything for you, even down to the q-tips and the hand towels. I check into a nice hotel on a Saturday night, bask in the rain shower, order wine to the room, and prance around in a big white robe. It’s more relaxing than a vacation, really, because you don’t even have to travel.

Entry 7: Dalat

I’m in two minds about Dalat. Sure it’s been dubbed ‘Le Petit Paris’ and ‘The City of Eternal Spring’, the scenery is spectacular, and it’s Vietnam’s most popular honeymoon spot, but as I explored the region I kept thinking to myself that maybe I’d have been better off going to Sa Pa or Mui Ne or Nha Trang instead.
