Operation Visit Japan â€“ February 2011 Report
February 27, 2011
Over the months that Operation Visit Japan has be underway I have gone from feeling tingly inside, to bouncing around in my chair to now wanting to do adrenaline fuel somersaults. Its that time again to write up an update on how the savings are going for Operation Visit Japan and now I can breathe a sigh of relief as I can see the US$3,000 goal in sight. I have been successfully holding back the habit of spending many hours at a time researching places to stay at, things to in and flights to get to and from Japan.
I swear I have lost entire days at work sometimes and whole nights of sleep looking at travel related resources that deal with Japan. One thing saving for a trip to Japan has made me realize is that if I hadn’t gotten serious and started when I did it would be much harder to start now. It’s not that I have lost interest but I have noticed that the value of us$100 which I save from my salary each month is much different in value from just over a year ago as just about every bill or other expense I had then has increased while my salary hasn’t.
