I got back from this years winter wonders of Japan photo tour at the beginning of March after two weeks of extraordinary adventures, it was a fabulous tour and I haven’t even had time to write properly about it… I will, though not today.
Planning Japan 2020 – Winter
Robert van Koesveld and I were planning adjustments for next years tour even as we travelled, which is often the best time when it’s all fresh. This meant the itinerary was done and we were ready to setup the logistics by the time we got home; so we had it all done in a very short time. I had only had a small window as I was off to Tasmania with Paul Hoelen 1 week after getting home from Japan, and directly following that I had two private Karijini tours to run… which is where I am now… More about Tasmania and Karijini soon (ish).
Well it seemed as fast as we put the Japan Winter tour together for 2020 the 8 available places filled, almost before I had finished the web page and the booking form. Last year both Japan tours (Autumn and Winter) filled within 2 days and without a proper newsletter going out, this years Autumn tour did the same thing… and now next years winter tour has filled without me notifying anyone!
The Moral of the Story
So… I’m not sure what the moral of this story really is, perhaps we should run more tours to Japan? Or perhaps if you are keen to come with us you should email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put your name on the early notification list.
Robert van Koesveld and I have just put together a Japan photo tour in Winter for next year in February. Actually this sounds like we threw the tour together in a hurry, this is not the case. We have actually been putting together this tour for some months, and Robert has run a similar winter in Japan photo tour before, but we have only just this week released it… and there are only 2 spots left already… and I haven’t even sent out a newsletter yet!

Last Saturday evening, March 10, at 11.45pm I finally completed the web-page for my Japan Photo Tour with Robert van Koesveld for November 2018, by 11.50pm I had 2 bookings. The next morning, I had another booking. Monday morning I had booking number 4, Tuesday morning booking 5,6 and 7, leaving just 3 places left.
By 3.30pm Tuesday all of those places were taken and I had 4 people on the waiting list… That’s a truly amazing response and it took both Robert and I completely by surprise. I am used to Bhutan and Iceland selling out fast, but fast is usually a couple of weeks, not 2.5 days… I didn’t even have time to send a newsletter…
