We are off to the US as well as South Amer­ica. We be­gin our trip in NYC where we will be spend­ing time with friends. From there, we visit Cuba for the very first time and im­merse our­selves in a new cul­ture. We fin­ish in my hus­band’s home­town, San Fran­cisco, to spend time with fam­ily. Of course, all des­ti­na­tions will be pep­pered with lots of yummy food spots and some Christ­mas shop­ping to pre­pare for the hol­i­day fes­tiv­i­ties.

I’m off to Ar­gentina! It’s def­i­nitely got that ex­otic xotic charm to it... also a place I’ve never ne ever vis­ited. Re­ally look­ing for­ward to this thist ad­ven­ture with some long-time friends... fr riends... and hav­ing some re­ally good d steak!

Tel-Aviv. I have been want­ing to see this an­cient civil­i­sa­tion, not only as the place of Christ’s [birth], but also where some of his­tory’s most ac­com­plished men come from. Ex­cit­ing!

I al­ways look for­ward to spend­ing Christ­mas in Ja­pan, es­pe­cially Niseko with my whole fam­ily. I love the white fluffy snow, tem­pura, and the yummy Ja­panese Beef. I also like snow fights with my brothers. I am try­ing to learn how to ski but my favourite snow ac­tiv­ity is snow tub­ing, which I can play the whole day with my mummy and daddy. I am so ex­cited! Count­ing down the days to the Christ­mas hol­i­days!

The whole fam­ily is off to Ja­pan. My side of the fam­ily and Z’s par­ents travel to­gether as one dur­ing the hol­i­day sea­son. It has be­come our tra­di­tion to cel­e­brate post-Christ­mas and New Year’s in Ja­pan since the kids re­ally look for­ward to a white Christ­mas. We’ve been go­ing there for the past four years and each time is a dif­fer­ent ex­pe­ri­ence. This year, it’s Tokyo first then on to our favourite Niseko. Our chil­dren love the white pow­dery snow—they en­joy ski­ing, cross-coun­try snow­mo­bile, snow­ball fights, and a whole lot of snow ac­tiv­i­ties. We are also in­clud­ing Takayama in our itin­er­ary this year. It’s a quaint, low-key, and rus­tic town with beau­ti­ful scenery. It’s ac­tu­ally our sec­ond time to visit Takayama and we are ex­cited to bring the whole fam­ily back again. Look­ing for­ward to the Hida beef which Takayama is fa­mous for!

Most likely New York since De­cem­ber 25 is the first an­niver­sary of us get­ting mar­ried in our favourite city. It’s also the first year that we can make a tra­di­tion out of it—mean­ing we can go to dif­fer­ent cities each year to cel­e­brate our an­niver­sary. Lon­don, too, be­cause I want to see my friend Rachel Anne Go in Hamil­ton! Then, for New Year’s, we will be in Aman­pulo.
