I have been living in Sweden for four years. The first December was an exciting experience that I do not want to repeat. It is dark most of the time, and even during the day, you can barely see the light. So, for the past three years, I have been taking my vacations in December to sunnier places.
The first year, I went to the South of Spain. I stopped by Barcelona to see friends and family.
The second year, I went to Japan. It was on my trip to Japan that I meet with a Korean woman that recommended me to visit her country. Why not?
So, this year I went to South Korea. And, as it was close by, I added China to the trip with a one-day stop in India and went back to Japan.
I have written a log for, more or less, each day. This way – I hope – the memories of different cities will have a harder time blending together as time passes by.
During this trip…
I have written a total of 23 posts.

I have slept in sixteen different hotels.
I have taken a dozen high-speed trains including a magnetic-levitation one. I have flown in seven planes. I have made more bus, local train and subway trips that I am willing to count. And, I have walked hundreds of kilometres.
I have filled 300 Gigabytes of data with more than 15,000 pictures and 1,000 videos.
And, I have had a lot of fun and got unforgettable memories from all the different cities I have visited and people I have met.
