Hi friends. As I am leaving for Vietnam on the 1st of June, I thought this would be the perfect opportunity to feature various places that I want to visit some day! (Okay, Thailand, Prague and Nepal don't really belong on this list, but I would love to go back there again!)

Where do you want to go to travel and explore?

Tokyo, Japan.
