My whole world trip was planned around the right timing for my visit to Japan. High on my bucketlist were the snow monkeys in actual snow and spring time with actual sakura (= cherry blossoms). Such iconic sights in a country filled with the exotic and splendid. I just missed it by a day in Tokyo but was greeted by a sea of pink at Nagoya Castle. Worth all the planning and waiting!
I think I was always made for foreign countries. At the age of 8 I started learning English and a lifelong language romance began. Seeing the country of Shakespeare for the first time 6 years later only set free what has always been lurking: the travel bug. I went off to live in England and Sweden for a little over half a year, travelling whenever I could while studying and working, all the while blogging about my experiences and interrogating my new international friends about their own cultures, daydreaming of finally visiting their foreign lands. This year I made the decision to stop dreaming and start living the dream. I made the bold plan to travel through Hong Kong, New Zealand, Australia and Japan within 11 months, discovering as much as I could and keeping my budget stable through jobs on working holiday visas. Here I am now and already in the midst of blogging about my adventures and travel stories. There is always something happening and I'd love to share it with you. I hope you join me on my crazy ride. See ya!
