dream destination
Been learning a little history and want to check it out
dream destination
Still need to learn more before I visit here.
(Old profile introduction of 2015)

My dream has been to go to Japan for a few years now. I don't know what it is. I know that no matter what part of the world you come from, people are still people. It's not like I expect people in Japan to be vastly different than the people here in America. Rather it's the subtle differences between our cultures that I want to experience.

Sadly I don't have the funds to travel right now. However I estimate that within a few months I will get the job I want and need for my career path. I have started to make plans and a budget as if I am going to Japan later this year (In the Autumn or Winter of 2015).

I know that's not the ideal travel time for tourism and sight seeing but that is the cheapest time of the year for me to travel. Besides, even though I want to go to Japan to see the sights, I don't want the entire experience to be as a "tourist" but as a person just experiencing something new.

If I could, in the future, I would like to live in Japan 3 months out of every year. Seeing as how I'd be working though, I won't have that long haha. It doesn't matter to me what part of Japan I go to but I do at least want to visit the northern, southern and central areas of the country.


Dream accomplished.

2016 Profile Introduction

Now that I have the entire world before me, it's time for me to begin enriching my life. I still have a lot of work on myself that I have to do before I can do that but it's well within my grasps. I still don't think that the travel bug has bitten me completely

However maybe if I visit a few places and take the effort in learning about each place that I plan to visit, maybe that will aid in the interest. Then again, maybe we all have a place that is particularly more special to us than any other.

In any case, I do plan on becoming a bit more active with the site and the people on it. Have a good travel :D
