Welcome to Osaka! 😍
I think most people would be surprised to know that Japan is the 1st new country I've travelled to since September – and that in the past 12 months, the only other countries I've ticked off my list have been Lesotho & South Korea.
I've been dreaming of Japan for a while now, but I kept telling myself to wait because I was convinced it would be too expensive and I was worried that once I experienced Japan, nowhere else would ever compare. I kept telling myself I'd come here when I was 35...but then the cluster-fuck of early 2018 happened and in the midst of my existential crisis (where I realised my mother was diagnosed with Cancer when she was my age) I thought "Why the hell not?" and booked a one way ticket to Osaka.
Stoked to finally explore the country that gave me Final Fantasy, Kingdom Hearts, Mario, Pokémon, Sailor Moon, Smash Bros, Sonic The Hedgehog, Spirited Away, Street Fighter, Tekken and so many other pop culture staples from my childhood. 😄🎊❤🎏🇯🇵
