Slowly but surely moving to Japan becomes reality.
This weekend I finally booked my flight with ANA (All Nippon Airways) and I’ll leave germany on March 24th. I had to wait until January 8th to book my ticket because all tickets booked on or after this day have a baggage allowance of not one but two suitscases with 23 kg. Of course this will still not be enough to bring all our stuff to Japan, but it’s better than only one measely suitscase (^_^)
Motivated by this I took the next step and had a major clean-up/sorting session with my mum and older sister to get started on our apartment. It will of course take a lot more time but it was a good leap forward and we got quite a bit sorted. The worst were my cosmetics because I just love to try new things and have differen creams for every part of my body and have a buttload of make-up. Even though I barely dress up or put on make-up for work I do enjoy it on my weekends and free days.The most annying thing to sort though were the papers I went through the day before. Not only do you really have to look at each and every piece but you also can’t just toss the whole bunch. Even though one might not need them again, but you have to keep them in the unlikely case that you actually do need them. I decided to take the most important ones with me, scan some others and leave the rest with my parents.
I’m still looking for the best way to ship some of our things to Japan but didn’t have the time for extensive research. Has anyone any experience with sending some boxes by ship or an international moving company?
