Our Travels: Mbithe in Japan | Finale

(Read Part Three here!)

My two weeks in Japan ended pretty much as soon as they began. I met so many people, did so many things, went to so many places, and still… I wasn’t ready to go home. 🙁 But the sad goodbyes will come later… for now, I’ll share about my last few days in Japan, which were, in many ways, some of the most memorable days of my life. 🙂

P.S: Brace yourself! Lots of pics and videos in this post! 😀

Mbithe is a software developer at Andela and loves all things tech! You can probably find her sitting barefoot somewhere writing beautiful code while singing along to really loud Japanese music. 🙂

Our Travels: Mbithe in Japan | Part Two

(Read Part One here!)

So where did we leave off? Oh, right! I was in my lovely bedroom at the Japan Foundation Japanese-Language Institute, Kansai (or just “the centre” to us), admiring the view, and realizing that I was finally in Japan. 🙂 I finally fell asleep at around 2 am (which was to be my sleeping time for the next couple of days). Still, I woke up fairly early at 7 am, enough time for me to have breakfast and attend orientation! 🙂

Our Travels: Gillian in Japan

Ah…nostalgia!

That’s the one thing that stays with you after travelling. You may have pictures to look through and souvenirs that you might have picked up on your travels but, nostalgia lets you relive the experience. Today being my birthday (Happy Birthday to me! Yay!) and with Mbithe in Japan at the moment, I can’t help but feel a tad nostalgic over the time I went to Japan.

In a perfect world, Gillian would be travelling round the world in her red vintage VW T1 van (Hippie Van) gathering stories of the people she meets and retelling them to those ready to listen. She is in the process of building this world which is now going to have all of you in it.
