There was a time (almost 3 months back, when the Expedia results weren’t out), when a question to name your favorite travel destination was put forth in the IndiBlogger Expedia forum and there seemed to exist some sort of a craze for the destination - Japan...
A cut-paste from the forum
...Very simply put, it’s beautiful.
There was a time, when a place like Japan existed only in my dreams and I saw it through the blogs of my Japanese blogger friends...

...and I’ve managed to see it ‘WITH’ my wonderful Japanese blogger friends.
There was a time, when I was all nervous about my first international trip and all I looked for was a soothing word, a simple wish for strength and support...
Sharing joys and asking for your blessings..

And today, I feel so lucky and fortunate to have got so many...... and now that I'm back, all I have got is a special...
Thank You, friends for all your good luck wishes and heartfelt blessings... I am back from Japan and the trip was amazingly fantastic, I was truly overwhelmed by seeing all your warm wishes and that actually divided my nervousness to a great extent. When the gratitude is deeper, it becomes all the more difficult to express it in sentiments and even more, if words don’t flow naturally for you and that is exactly what is happening with me right now...
I am highly grateful to all of you for your love, affection, encouragements and motivations and thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart. I feel really blessed and secure to be amongst you in this blogosphere. My sincere heartfelt Thanks to YOU! :)
Get Ready to travel!
I trust you and your blogs to be doing great! Seems like such a long time since I penned down something here. I have been badly missing writing my own entries as much as reading yours... My already rusted writing is getting a bit more rustier with each passing day and I realize that before it vanishes out completely, I need to do something about it.
So, while I try to get my pen rolling on my blog as well as yours, what you can do is pack your bags and get ready, because we will be embarking on our virtual Japan yatra very soon! See you there!
