Other than the two planned and booked trips to Hong Kong an Marrakesh (just the hotels have to be booked in June) the ideas for my travel destinations next year are forming.
As I am getting older (and wiser) I want to spent my round birthday as far away as possible :). The plans are quiet detailed as to where to go. The end of March until the mid of April I will fly to Auckland, New Zealand and drive down to Christchurch on the southern island. I calculate 2,5 to 3 weeks for this trip. This will be my main holiday. I plan on traveling with Singapore Airlines as they are one of the best airlines out there, have good connections from Oslo, are member of the Star Alliance (one has to think about bonus miles) and have an affordable Premium Economy product. Long trips (about 26 hours) should not happen in the back of the plane.
As to my autumn holidays, I already have saved enough Eurobonus miles to get me to my destination in economy class. Until the end of the year I should have enough miles to get the premium economy ticket. That will be a 100 Euro return flight Molde – Oslo – Copenhagen – Tokyo and back. Just fees and taxes to be payed. Here I want to stay in the city. Depending on how long I will be there (one week is a must) I might think about a tour inside the country. Kyoto is said to be very interesting, but nothing concrete yet. Still a long time until then, but as always I like to start planning early.
