I go back to the UK once a year. When I go back, I never fly directly from Japan to the UK. I always fly via another city. This is because I like to spend a few days in a different city.

Over the years, I have had stopovers in various cities. The main ones are Hong Kong, Kuala Lumpur, Paris, Amsterdam, and Helsinki.

All the cities are great to visit, but my favourite is Paris. I have visited Paris six times. When I’m on a stopover, I only stay for around two nights, so I don’t have much time. I used to go sightseeing, but now, I like to relax in a cafe and read a book.

I have visited Helsinki three times. Every time, I stayed there on December 31st. There is a big celebration in the main square in the city every year. It is cold, but always good fun.

This year I am going to stay in Amsterdam. It is my third time to visit the city. The first time I went, I just stayed for one night, so I spent that in a bar. The second time I went, I stayed on December 31st, but I had influenza, so I didn’t have a great time. This year, I hope to do some sightseeing and enjoy my time there.
