If you were to do Germany I would suggest chucking Prague in there too. It's an easy train trip from Munich or Berlin and is very cool and reasonably priced if you are savvy. We've been in summer and over Christmas and enjoyed both immensely. We are fighting the urge to go back as it seems every time we want to plan a holiday it comes to mind again!Hey Guys
So I have traveled a bit the last few years and the Wife & I would like to plan 1 last big vacation before we start planning for kids. I can honestly say there is not one country I have not enjoyed but would like to go somewhere I have never been / attend an event. County's I have visited - UK, France, Singapore, Hong Kong, South Korea, Iceland, Thailand, Malawi.
My current top 3 considerations are:
Japan (Attend summer Olympics)
Germany (Berlin Marathon & October Fest)
The only real issue is the time of the year which is limited to the beginning of August (can use 6 days), end of September (can use 6 days) or December (basically unlimited leave).
Any other recommendations ?
what's the english understanding like? My japanese is well.. non-existentJapan Japan Japan for as long as your budget can allow! Especially in December cause its Winter!
Tokyo is an insanely cool city. weirdest **** to be seen (check robot restaurant), check out the otaku culture in akhiba.
Hit up the ski slopes in Hokkaido prefecture, also super renowned for their produce (milk/beef/fish/dairy).
Onsens in the snow.
Incredible culture + history.
Get a JR pass and travel the country on the shinkansen (bullet train).
Awesome japanese whiskey tours.
Of course the incredible food.
Yeah i need to go back........................
Getting around is easy, nearly all the signs are in english, most places have english menu's if you ask. The japanese speak very little so dont expect to be having many conversations but it didn't hamper the trip at all, makes it more fun!what's the english understanding like?

I did my Oktoberfest trip when I was 47 so there is no rush.Met with a few mates and octoberfest and Berlin marathon is on the cards for the next trip in a couple of years. If I hit US will probably only do new york and one other city nearby. Japan will probably explore most of the country with the train. Still very undecided but leaning towards a summer vacation.
How was Uruguay? Would you live there? I kinda looked at immigrating there maybe one day. Small country, only 3.5mil people, no quarrels with anyone. Want a peaceful place lol.Was in South America for 3 weeks in December (Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay & Paraguay)...no zika virus
