In 2001 I used the money I had saved while living in Japan (and being overpaid by the Japanese government) to finance a trip around the world.

I started in the UK to see Megan get married.

While there I made a quick hop over to Ireland (and forced Misty to come with me).

Then on to Denmark to visit Trine and go to a party.

Off to Thailand (because I didn't have a visa for Vietnam - silly David!)

On to China, to see Lindsay's Beijing abode

To Japan, to visit Melissa for a couple of weeks.

And home to the states for Christmas
