You & Me Around Japan (Disposable Film Camera Photos)

Hi everybody!

To make way for the upcoming blog / youtube series, here are some teaser photos of what happened during the 9 Days Japan Backpacking adventure with Aki.

I have a train to catch in 15 minutes because I have work in another prefecture today so no captions for this post for now, haha. I’ve kept my instagram stories to those who are interested in our itinerary! Full details soon! 🙂

Currently Backpacking Around Japan 🇯🇵

Hi everybody!

Thought I should try updating my blog using my phone.

If you’ve been following me or any of my social media accounts, you’d know that I’m currently on a trip to discover and explore new places here in Japan with Aki. So far, we’ve visited Nagasaki, Fukuoka, and Hiroshima.

I used to be the kind of traveler who would bring her house with her whenever she goes on a trip but after being with Aki, he has inspired me to bring only what I need for survival lol. Of course, I had a journaling pouch with me. ??

So many people sent me DM about how I pack my stuff for this trip! I’ll upload a pack with me / what’s in my travel backpack video, don’t worry lolol~

From Haneda airport, we flew to our first stop Nagasaki for about 2 hours! Upon arriving, we checked in at our cheap airbnb & left our backpacks to enjoy the Nagasaki Lantern Festival more comfortably. A rainy city welcomed us but it didn’t stop us from exploring the charming Nagasaki.

The actual blogging, of course! Lololol ~

Here’s the final installment of my Seoul trip series with Aki! You can check related posts here. ^^

During our 3rd day in Seoul, we decided to take a day trip to Petite France & Nami Island.

I’m a huge fan of Little Prince (like my friend Ashley!) & I remember seeing some clips of this beautiful place from a Korean Drama called “My Love from the Star“. Being able to visit this colorful pastel wonderland with Aki was truly memorable for me.

Before entering Petite France, we first ate lunch at the kombini located in front of it. I absolutely love people-watching while eating with this person lol.

And the non-stop “Take picture of me please~” requests started at this point lololol

Thank you stranger for helping us achieve my kdrama dream :))

Another Sakura Dream

Fetching my parents from the airport yesterday night was such a dream.

When I moved to Japan almost 5 years ago, I promised myself that zettai, zettai (absolutely).. I will do my best to bring my parents here and give them an all-expense paid trip. For me to finish my degree in a private university in Manila, my Mom and Dad worked their very best to support. And I will always be grateful for them because of that… I wouldn’t be here if it weren’t for them.

Now that I have established myself here, I’ve decided that it is about time to payback everything. And this beautiful sakura season, I will be showing them around and we will all have an unforgettable time together.

I can’t wait to share more stories about this trip.

Hope you guys have a wonderful Spring break as well! ?

Love,
