Why Japan? Why not.

Keith suggested I write an entry about why I am headed to Japan. This way readers can have an idea of what to expect when they come across my blog. Most people assume it is for work[they clearly don't know where I work :-) ] or I am visiting someone who is in the military. I was bit by the travel bug in 1998. I was an exchange student @ Hayes Manor School located in Middlesex England. I absolutely loved it and made it a life goal to see as much as the world as I possibly could. In college there were a few domestic trips and Christmas 2007 was spent in Kingston. In Summer 2008 after many prayers and preparation[and auditions] my cousin Babysister was offered a job with Disney Tokyo and invited me to visit. I will admit Asia was on my travel list, but not at the top. However, I'd be a flat out fool to pass up an opportunity such as this. With the blessings of my family [and my wonderful boss]I renewed my passport and booked a flight for Tokyo! Over all I am excited, but I get excited about everything. In UK and Kingston I blended in as long as I didn't speak too much, but in Japan..I am a traveler for sure. I am looking forward to it all. The food, the music, the people, the temples and the best part is sharing this experience with family!
10 days til takeoff!

    I am excited for your oppurtunity, and like Monya, I can't wait to see all that you capture on your trip. I wish you would be able to take pictures of OKINAWA....my birth place...just to live vicariously through you at this point in my life. Travel is not a bug I've been bitten by as of yet, but I am glad I have a friend that has been bitten. and thanks for the shout out at the beginning...lol

  3. Oh yes! I have spawned the next generation of travel bloggers. I will put a link on my blog to you. Rush into the trip with eyes wide open and savor every second.

    Wow! you did it! i am proud of your courage! that aint no small thing, most of the people i know from Carolina, never made it out of the southeast! the pics brought back memories of when i was in japan, it was a very interesting place, but not where i could see myself spending a lot of time. I love your studio pics, that was cool! you think you cute, huh ;-)
