A free Japanese class in Okinawa


Hi everyone! 

Check out this Blog post about improving your life and integration into the community though learning the language! It’s so vital to be a part of what’s going on around you through learning Japanese when living in Japan. 

A night at a resort for 50 bucks…


Okinawa is the Hawaii of Japan. I love living here and one of the winters I was able to hang out at a super fancy hotel for only 50$. I was so stoked. My friend found a deal for the Okuma Beach Resort hotel online. I wrote about this cool hotel stay in my Okuma Resort Review on Taiken. Check it out if you like.

Hi guys,

have you heard of the ancient folklores revolving around the Ryukyu kings of Okinawa? Here is an article I wrote, about the ancient stories revolving around the Goddess that came down to Ryukyu and was forced to marry…

It’s  on Taiken.co, a Japanese/English travelblog. Check it out.

 

Wistful perfume is strangely comforting…

For some reason this new perfume my mom gave me is very comforting. The scent is mild and light but feminine and elegant. It’s from France. I wonder where I know it from.

The Japanese Carbonara Spagetti

Look at this beauty! I wanted to go for a pasta dish the other day when I met up for lunch with my friends at Joyfull. The Joyfull chain restaurants serve a whole lot of deliciousness and this was my first Carbonara Spagetti outside of Europe. It was quite good and the egg on top was quite different from what I am used to.

Body Shop | White Musk Eau de Toilette


I’ve always wanted this! Walking past the colorful Body Shops in Japan with countless displays of nice smelling and exotic lotions and parfums.

 I always wanted this Eau de toilette. It smells warm and comforting but is light and not heavy at the same time. The scent fades after a while and stays as a comfortable nice smelling scent, which I like. I’m not a fan of giving someone a hug that wears heavy parfum and then smelling like this person and having the scent in my nose the whole evening.

This Eau se toilette is the perfect balance.

When you travel, you grow


It is so easy to just sit back and relax and do nothing with your day. I love a day of rest like any other. 

But since I travel the world I have understood that knowledge is indeed power. Traveling gives you knowledge of the world and it increases the power and self control you have on yourself. As you see the cities fly by beneath you and the different people of various cultures greet you, you realize how small your own world is.

Your neighborhood appears tiny and even bland, the things you eat, wear and like are just a glimpse of the vast variety of products all over the world. 

Seeing the world frees you to see yourself in a different light and in comparison to everyone else on this planet. It leaves you in awe and it excites you like nothing else.

I would not trade it for any other thing.
