I'm a Cook/bartender from Finland. I'm staying in Osaka, Japan for 8 months with my husband. I'm planning on making an RTW, because it's the opportunity of my life. My husband is working in Japan the whole 8 months, and I have only time in my hands, So why not use it to travel for 3 months. I'll still have 5 months left in Osaka, when I get back. I've been dreaming about RTW, but always thought that I'm too attached to the surrounding I live in. When we leave Turku, and move to Osaka for the 8 months, I have to empty my fish tank, find someone to take care of my my Parrots and cats. After I've done those, theres no excuse for me not to go!
I'd be glad to take advice on my trip plan. USA is questionable... Maybe I'll avoid the costs, and go to South America instead.
