|01:54 am - Japan 2013|
So onto the good news I mentioned a few days ago.
I'm finally going to Japan!
I finally booked a flight in January to head out there for almost two weeks. A trip I've been dreaming of doing ever since I was a boy is finally happening. I already got some vacation time for that time, which is good since my vacation days are piling up and I need to use some of them before the end of Jan. Can't think of a better way than this for the time being =).
I was planning to make this trip two years ago, but I put it aside then. I actually got the fare at a pretty good rate, considering a roundtrip ticket can go $1500 and above...I paid hella less. Once I get there, I'll be the one whose been the farthest away from home on ANY trip than anyone in my family lol.
Some extra good news too is that one my co-workers has a son who lives there taking classes, and he's also planning to go around the same time I'll be there, so at least I'll have some company some of those days I'll be there too.
South Korea is also on my mind as well, though I haven't booked anything from Tokyo to Seoul yet (though it's not much, maybe $200). My sister Amy has had people "couch-surfing" at her place on occasion and one of them is a dude from South Korea. I picked up her apt keys from him this past weekend and walked him to the subway, so he told me if I go visit, I could crash there as well, so the trip def looking more appealing.
It's sad I won't be going with anyone but it is what it is. Somehow guessed I would do this one alone, but no matter, I'll def have a great time.
Current Location: NYC...looking 6700 miles away

I thought this would be a good place to get in touch with you. I had my purse stolen today so I don't have my phone... really any of my phone numbers, so if you need me or anything, shoot me an email. I still haven't gotten the PC out. It may take longer than I expected now. All of my personal stuff is gone.
I'm so glad you're going to get to go to Japan, hon. I know you've been looking forward to this trip for a very long time. Make sure you take lots of pictures. =)
