It’s been a busy morning, sorted out my International driving permit, got a fist full of yen, found my passport, sorted out directions to the airport and have done my packing! Now I just have to book the long-stay carparking, clear my camera’s memory card and tidy the house. No rest for the wicked!

I hope to bring you some photoblogging while I’m on my trip to the land of the rising sun so keep an eye out here for some posts and I’l be posting on my flickr site too so watch this space!
