So this is week 8 of the Student Blogging Challenge, and I guess this time I’m planning a trip to a few different countries. Three of the countries that I would visit are the UK, Japan, and New Zealand. Of course, I am assuming that I’d already know Japanese by the time that I’m 18 (when I would be leaving on my trip). In total, (according to my parents) the cost would be about $10,000. I would be going during the summer so I would pack a mix of long sleeve and short sleeve shirts just in case of weather changes.
According to this time calculator (on a plane) it should take about 9 hours to get from the USA to the UK, and then 12 hours from the UK to Japan, and from Japan to New Zealand it’s about 12 hours– not to mention the time to get back to the USA which would be about 16 hours. In total I would be flying on a plane for about 49 hours, which is about 2 whole days. I would also be staying at each country for a week or so, depending on what is most convenient. Instead of calling my friends and family back in the USA I would email or text them, this would wipe out the time zone problem.
While in the UK I would visit London and go visit some of the Sherlock and Doctor Who filming locations and take some tours there. I might also go to a comic con if there’s one going on at the time that I’m there. In Japan I might wander around and go on a few tours, and in New Zealand I would visit some of The Hobbit filming areas, including Hobbiton in Matamata.
I would love to go on a trip like this– it would be so much fun! After I get back home I would probably start planning my next trip around the world.
