Mike and I are considering going to Japan next year as a way to finalize the Cali Cares journey. The idea came to us when we heard about this opportunity:
Japan Tourism Agency to give out 10,000 flights to would be tourists
The Japan Tourism Agency plans to ask would-be travellers to submit online applications for the free flights, detailing which areas of the country they would like to visit, the Yomiuri Shimbun newspaper said.
The agency will select the successful entrants and ask them to write a report about their trip which will be published on the internet.
Needless to say, we were going crazy over the idea of actually going to Japan. After researching this news more I found out that this opportunity is not a for sure thing yet. In any case, Mike has been editing the video footage from his trip and is making a short video. We plan on submiting this, with our personal interviews, and crossing our fingers.
I get the goosebumps thinking about Mike being able to ride a stretch of the Japanese coast on the same bike he road down our coast. I can’t think of a more fitting end for this journey.
