I'm on my way

As you are reading this post, I'm most likely boarding my flight to Japan! 
This day has long been awaited and I'm so excited yet scared at the same time!
I've always been one to embrace change yet fear of the unknown especially when dealing with it on your own can be overwhelming at times! Fret not though, as I am a highly adaptable human being and very soon I will be extremely comfortable in my new environment!


So I've packed my whole life for 18 days in this suitcase including an extra large carry-all for all the treasures I will be bringing back. And I expect I will be bringing back A LOT!
 I've also snuck inside a couple too many water bottles...a little fear of radiated water still looms in my mind!

As to what I will be wearing on the trip.... well you will see me in a lot of  delicate whites...


.... as well as some bright reds and corals....

....florals in the summer can never be excluded....

...and some funky black and white prints!

 And now I'm set to embark on my fabulous journey and hopefully share it with you along the way. Due to my poor photography skills  I decided not to bring my bf's SLR camera. As well, the camera's weight is too much for me to lug around all across Japan and I do want to enjoy myself while I'm there!So you will have to do with my Canon G11! I'm hoping it will not disappoint although the pictures will not be as fantastic as they could have been if I would have travelled with my other half!

So stay tuned as the next post will be coming live later this week from 
Kyoto, Japan!

so jealous!!! I hope you have a fabulous time :) Can you write prices of some of the things there? I've heard some of the costs there were outrageous. When I went, I was in the countryside so prices were similar to Vancouver. But I know people who hit up place like Tokyo said everything was too expensive. Enjoy the culture and maybe pick up some Japanese in the process!

Oh I'm so excited for you Mina!! You're going to have so much fun, I absolutely adore traveling to new cultures and immersing myself... it's also so interesting to do it by yourself- you learn so much about yourself and take more chances. I cannot wait to see your photos and souvenirs! xx

Cee said...

Have a wonderful, wonderful trip Mina! I think not taking the SLR camera was a good decision- you want to have photos, but also enjoy the trip, which you can't do if you're toting a heavy camera all over the place. I can't wait to see all of the wonderful things you'll bring back :)
xox,
Cee
