Homeward Bound

Well, tomorrow is my last full day in Japan. I can’t believe it has been 5 months. It feels like it was 5 weeks. Or 5 years. I waver between the two. 

It sure has been a crazy adventure! I will miss a lot of things about it, but I’m sure I’ll be back. For now, I’m excited to get home to my family, friends and American comforts (read: Wendy’s)

My photos from my trip will be on facebook, so please look for them there! Too many amazing photos, it would take up like 1000 tumblr posts. 

Thanks for reading everyone!

Tokyo Skytree - The newest and tallest building in Tokyo, and the second tallest manmade thing in the world! Amazing view. Also the elevator ride was so fast - everyone on the elevator let out a collective “woooahhhh” when we reached the top after a few seconds.
