[Japan Travel + Life]: I'm back from a long, awesome trip!  
Hello everybody!

How have you been??
First of all: HAPPY NEW YEAR 2012!!!
I hope the year of the dragon will be an awesome one!

I came back from my 11 days winter vacation trip on Sunday and have been busy ever since then which is why I couldn't post earlier.

I guess it's time for a brief update, huh?
Ok, here we go. I have a new job and due to that I'll have to move in 6 weeks!
That is not much time! I'm so busy getting things done, getting packed, sending things, trying to figure out what I have to do etc.
Although it's gonna be my 5th(!! omg!) year in Japan, it's my first time MOVING in Japan!!

If anybody has any experience with moving in Japan, I'd really appreciate some advice.
Currently I'm trying to figure out what the best option to send my stuff is. Kuroneko looks promising.
I also need to get rid of quite a lot of stuff at Hard Off and House Off or whatever they're called.

Shifting money to another bank account that will work outside of my current prefecture.
Doing some last-minute traveling within my prefecture (you know the "oh, I live here I can always go, so I never went there yet" thingie, right? -___-;; ...)

As you can imagine all that leaves me even busier than I usually already am!

I will update you with more details some other time.
I think it's enough if I say that I'll move to Kansai in 6 weeks.


Because I'm so busy, I won't have time to post much in the next few weeks or months. I might even be without internet for a month or two once March comes!

That's why I wanted to give you at least a short review of my awesome winter vacation now!
I hope you'll enjoy it!~

MUCH MORE over at ZOOMING JAPAN!
(sorry I can't post things twice all the time ...)

Thanks for staying with me!~

[Japan Travel]: Nagasaki - Day 2  
Hey there,

so here is my 2nd day in Nagasaki (Kyuushuu, Japan).

Nagasaki - Day 2 (August 11th, 2008):

On this 2nd day I tried to go to some places I couldn't the first day and there were still a lot of things on my "to-see"-list. Nagasaki is definitely a city where 2 days of sightseeing aren't enough!

Temples, shrines, graveyards, random encounters, Chinatown )



Dejima and Dr. von Siebold + I wanna be a cat! )



Confucius Shrine, another Catholic church, port of Nagasaki + Mt. Inasa's AWESOME nightview! )


Anyway, that was my time in Nagasaki. I just went to bed pretty soon after that, and the next morning I already was on my way to Kumamoto (which will be featured XD in the next entry).
Hope you enjoyed it.

Bye-chuu~

[Japan Travel]: Nagasaki - Day 1  
Okay,

I finally have some time (well actually not, but I just HAVE to do it ) to post pictures and a short report about my first day in Nagasaki.

Before I start a random note:



Exactly one year ago I came to Japan for the first time (back then for a 3 week vacation together with [livejournal.com profile] hesaki). Jesus, I can't believe that it's already ONE year AGO!!! Time sure is running (too) fast (as always).




There are some other things I'd like to blabber about, but that will have to wait until I have more time. Now I wanna get this entry done at least ;)

Enjoy


Nagasaki - Day 1 (August 10th, 2008):

In Nagasaki (Kyushu) I stayed 2 days and 2 nights. Of course I wanted to stay longer, but as I only had a 1 week vacation, that was not possible. I always wanted to go to Nagasaki, there are so many things and as I've already written in one of my previous posts, I really fell in love with that city. I envy all the people on my f-list that live there (I know there are some :D). Lucky you!
Anyway let's start the picspam ;)

Atomic Bomb Museum and Memorial Hall )



Ground zero, Peace Park, Catholic churches, Glover Garden )



I loves to was random XD )


Okay, time to take a shower and get comfy. It's already evening here in Japan :)

Bye-cha!~
