If you could spend a week anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
I would visit Tokyo. My wife and I are huge Disney fans and are trying to go to every Disney park, so we could check Tokyo Disney off the list. I’ve also only really travelled in North America, so it’s about as far away as possible from anywhere I’ve currently been to.
