I flew Sapporo-Tokyo-Paris-Montpellier on July 10. Then I flew Montpellier-Paris-Tokyo-France on July 13 (reaching Sapporo on July 14). I then got to spend one day in Sapporo before flying to Tokyo to spend the night and then get up really early to fly Tokyo-Helsinki-Stockholm.
You might think that going from France to Sweden would be smarter, but our university does not allow combining trips. If you have even one day of non-work somewhere during a trip, they refuse to pay conference fees etc. for you business days too. So I had to fly back to Japan to start my vacation and then go to Europe again.
