Morning stroll

Greetings from Tokyo! After regained our energy last night, I was grateful that we did not catch a cold or other sickness from the fatigue yesterday. With full energy (and empty stomach) we departed around 1 PM after check out. Strolled around the area to find a place to eat. Again, the Google Maps failed us to our destination which was the other way round. So we needed to turn back again to our departure area and headed to correct direction. Mr. F was the one who lead the direction, since he understands japanese and stayed here for 2 years before. Sometimes he felt nervous and guilty to me because he was not so familiar with Tokyo (he stayed at Kawasaki before).

Japan | Day 1/14 : A dream came true

Have you ever had your dream come true? My childhood dream was granted last December which was to step my foot in Japan. I do love Japan, all of it, since I was a kid. There were so many anime and manga that I watched and read up until now. Well it may sounds cheesy, but I can’t even have my soul in my work since November because counting down to the day. I was imagining how will I reacted when I arrived in Japan on that day. Will I cry? Will I shocked? It’s like, ‘Finally I achieve my childhood dream, finally it came true!’.  *sniff* (even when I’m writing right now, I still feel touched, shame on me..haha)

It was exactly a month ago, me and Mr.F departed from Jakarta to Narita which was on 22nd December 2016. It should be 4 of us but the other two friends can’t make it because of other plans. We booked our ticket last February as soon as Mr. F see the ANA website showing December ticket availability! It was cost Rp 7,387,900 for 2-way tickets. It was affordable! We expected it will be more than 10 million rupiah since it was peak season. So happy! So here I am, starts to flashback and share my trips with you guys 🙂
