Certainly going overseas fullstop is fun (well, most places anyway. I wouldn't say be that keen to go to Bali or the likes...). Friends is better but be sure that you all know each other well and that there's no friction between yourselves.
I'm afraid that Japan isn't that far in the future. Yet. =p
Well! We stayed in Tokyo mostly in different areas (two hotels), and inbetween had a stint in Osaka in a hotel by Universal studios (was very nice, by a port and a whole section of restaurants). And we had a day trip to Kyoto as well, which was quite enjoyable (saw a shrine and went to a castle). Saw other places (an aquarium for example, and various districts of Tokyo including the gaming district and Shibuya), and also the Pokemon centres. XD
Their public transport also puts ours to shame. =( Stupid Australia...
Aaaah, how was Japan? I bet it was amazing, tell me all about it! Where did you go? What did you see?
And no way; umm, we need that in Australia, "JULIA".
Yeah great, today's been awesome. Everything I wanted to turn out, has turned out. The most exciting being I passed my interview and got into SRC! So yeah, I'm in a really happy mood today -- more than usual, I should say. :p
