My Japan Traveling Bucket List

Beberapa hari (atau minggu) belakangan ini rasanya padat sekali. Saya ingin mengupdate blog ini, tapi apa daya, setiap weekend selalu ada acara yang memakan banyak waktu. Belum lagi, pelajaran di kelas mulai masuk ke bagian grammar yang sedikit lebih rumit. Energi dan fokus saya harus saya bagi dengan efisien. Saya masih belum berhasil membagi fokus dengan baik tampaknya, tapi saya akan terus berusaha! #oyeah. Sekarang ini saya sedang juggling dengan beberapa topik di dalam kepala: PR Bahasa Jepang, groupwork Japanese Affairs, blog, dan plan ngetrip di Winter Break nanti. Karena PR untuk besok tinggal listening dan groupwork baru saja selesai bagi tugas tadi sore, sekarang saya akan coba menulis bucket list.

Sungguh saya bingung harus ke mana untuk winter break besok. Libur dimulai tanggal 26 Desember hingga 6 Januari. Di Jepang banyak sekali tempat bagus, tetapi kalau kita datang di waktu yang salah, tempat itu bisa jadi tidak sebagus yang seharusnya. It’s all about timing…and money. Ada tempat-tempat yang lebih cocok didatangi di musim tertentu atau bulan tertentu. Traveling di Jepang memang membutuhkan perencanaan yang baik, menurut saya. Karena kalau kita teliti, kita bisa ngetrip dengan murah. Jangan malas riset! Google it all! :)
