I'm going to work.

To the fridge for another beer! I was a road warrior for <insert prominent IT company here> for 8 years, I don't want to go anywhere anymore...esp if it involves the TSA or commercial airlines.
Considering taking my RV on a 7-8 week road trip from AR to Seattle next summer though....
Remember: You're a unique individual...just like everybody else.
I don't like to travel much! I went to Canada for a Band Trip when I was in High School and the Carribean for my brothers wedding/cruise, but that's about the farthest I've been! I went to Florida a couple times for Spring Break training when I was an assistant track coach. I go to Mass for fishing trips, or I go out 70-120 miles off of Montauk for Offshore fishing trips. Other than that, I stay at home pretty much. I'd rather spend the money on knives, stones, guns, etc than go away for a week.
Travelling is my favorite hobby, by far.
London is on the schedule for this week and next.
Christmas holiday will be spent on the Canaries, and the plan right now is to spend a couple weeks in the big apple come May.
Sadly, I don't have time to join my wife for a Shanghai trip in a month, but we'll find some spot we can do together this fall.
Anywhere but here.
All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds wake in the day to find that it was vanity; but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams with open eyes, to make it possible. - Lawrence
Currently in Korea (for the 2nd time). Not sure about the next port of call, though. That's 1 or 2 years from now, so far into the future in my book. I've visited Japan twice this year for the first time since 1997-9 when I lived there, and am still on a bit of Japan kick which is partially knife-fuelled, partially because it's a bit like going home, and probably because I like it better than 10+ years ago. Oh, and because I can sometimes get cheap tickets from Seoul (though not that cheap compared to many flight prices in SE Asia or Europe).
Just kidding (although I also don't think the Palace grounds are a real top site in Tokyo) ... I mean, you're flying halfway across the world for a mere 48 hours? Hardly seems worth it unless you have free tickets or something. ... Have you been before? The plans all sound good, except for the Palace in my opinion.
I've been to Chuo/Maronouchi a couple of times already but have not been to the East garden yet, just figured it might be worth a visit. It's a pretty tight schedule, though, so it might get skipped. She wants to get to the Sensoji complex in Asakusa as well as the nearby Drum Museum on the way to Kappabashi-dori -- all doable within a couple of hours after Tsukiji. Saturday could just as easily be spent shopping in Shibuya before heading back to Ryogoku for the Sumo.
