Arriving in Narita Airport

Landed in Narita airport and caught Narita Express to Oak hotel in Ueno. Uhm.. yeah it was a solo trip and the feeling of having conquered something on your own is really a liberating experience. Y/Y? I feel so proud of myself. =D *pats* I know, I know this is not the first time I traveled alone.. but still. xD I’ve done this over the past *coughs Australia, Singapore and.. Dubai coughs* but I had my cousins/friends picked me up from the airport and helped me navigate my way through the said countries. Though, this is my second time in Japan the feeling of coming here on my own is totally different. *winks* hehe

After getting off from Tokyo station, proud to say I managed to find my way to the hotel without any trouble.. amazing that still after a year I can still read TKY subway/train map correctly. Yosh! 😀 9 hr plane ride + more than 2(?) hrs of train ride totally sucked the energy out of me.. sheer exhaustion knocked me out for 4 hours. By the time I woke up it’s almost 8-9pm, so I just decided to stroll around the area and had dinner in one of the nearby restaurants. 🙂

DAY 2: YOKOHAMA. MY FIRST STOP TO HIROTO PILGRIMAGE!

♠ Met up with Kat, my former colleague at my last office in Makati, PH. She’s now working in Yokohama. Oh, did I tell you she’s also fond of Kame, too! I just found out about it when I posted a video of Kame’s SFS over my FB and she commented that she likes him in Gokusen. Awww

HIROTO~!!! OH. MY. GOD. THERE. ARE. NO. WORDS. FOR. MY. LEVEL. OF. EXCITEMENT. IN. THIS. That awk moment when you’re on the verge of crying because you cannot believe that you are finally there in Hirotoland. OMG!!! *insert all incoherencies* MY LOVE FOR THIS PERSON IS BEYOND WORDS. BEYOND MENTAL AND PHYSICAL REALM. /endof *hums Bokura no Machi De*
