The Second Week

FGoing outside of Tokyo is never dull, unless you yourself are boring I guess 😀

Well, needless to say a lot has happened since the last post and I cannot with any fairness recount it all in one post, nor do I have the time to actually write a lot of posts (yeah, being in Japan is busy work 😆 ).

So I will try to recount the week very briefly and add some pictures that I haven’t already posted on instagram and facebook. If I have the time and energy I might post more, and I actually have a surprise in store for later when it’s finished.

But to sum up the week it’s TRAINS, FOOD, KARAOKE AND TRAINSSSSS…. Continue reading “The Second Week”

2 Days to Takeoff!!!!

Wrapping up

So, today I’m working with finishing everything that is left so I’ll be able to fully focus on the vacation tomorrow. Making sure everything is ready.

I was sitting now working, I just glanced at the clock and then in panic I realize that suddenly it’s 14:49!!!

So TODAY WILL be a short post to meet my time limit! Continue reading “2 Days to Takeoff!!!!”

3 Days to Takeoff!!!

Restoring hope!

Today I’m working up north in Gällivare. This is the last work-heavy day with a lot of important stuff to do. Most of the work I’m doing today has to do with a project I’m starting this summer that is planned to involve all 14 municipalities in Norrbotten County.

Right now I’m trying to finish up everything work-related so that I can truly just let go when the plane lifts from Luleå and then just focus on myself and my trip. 😀

But first, let’s revisit the unlikely return to Japan in 2013! Continue reading “3 Days to Takeoff!!!”

4 Days to Takeoff!

Getting close now!

As the day for takeoff is closing in, so are the secondary stress setting in. I need to do this, I need to do that, I have to finish this, have I forgotten to do anything at work? Is everything prepared, do I have time for this and so on…

With this I will unfortunately become more, and more short in my blog posts unfortunately. But yeah, still going back to the previous trips and 2011 was a… strange year for me in Japan. It could have been the greatest so far, but well… Continue reading “4 Days to Takeoff!”

5 Days to Takeoff!

The journey of firsts

So, right now I am starting to get giddy. Very, very giddy. Most of the heavy lifting when it comes to work and stuff to do before Japan is finished. And the relief that comes from releasing stress gives way for happiness, childlike hapiness to take it’s place when I realize that soon I’ll be gone for fortyfive (45) days and just enjoy Japan! 😀 Continue reading “5 Days to Takeoff!”

6 Days to Takeoff!

A trip down memory lane

There is a point in every man’s life where he want to go Japan, and he wants to write a blog but has no idea what to write other than the clock is ticking and he want so badly to go there. Now.

So in the wake of things to come (including Adolf.Blog’s answer to my Challenge) I will revisit some old  memories. Because if you have met me in real life and spoken about Japan with me1 I often2 speak at length about my previous trips. So as a theme for the last 6 days I will go through and summarize the previous trips.

So let’s start at the beginning! Continue reading “6 Days to Takeoff!”
