Sup wassup! Oi! Ola! Bom Dia! It’s hard to believe that we are now in South America.
We got to Iceland via a 17 hour (from memory) ferry from the Faroes which left a day and a half later than planned due to a storm in Iceland. The route the ferry took was sailing to the south part of Iceland first then going north along the coast to the port in the east.
Last year, when I turned 24 I wrote down some thoughts/things I learned during that year. I wanted to do the same with the past year (even though I turned 25 six months ago already haha).
Lately, I have taken a strong likening to photography. I have never really cared for it before, though. Before Eb and I left Australia, we weren’t planning on even bringing a camera. I thought about taking one of those disposable cameras and I remember I just wanted for me to immerse myself fully into travelling and remembering these experiences by memory.
We are really enjoying our time here in Tokyo. Our days consist of cleaning hostel beds and showers, then the rest of the day we have all to ourselves. Tokyo feels like it is currently going through a heat wave, it is ridiculously hot here.
We had planned on staying in Shimoda for the majority of our time but for unforeseen circumstances, plans changed and now we are in Tokyo!
We were thinking that the only way from Shimoda to Tokyo – a distance of about 200 kms would be by train. Trains are so expensive in Japan and it would’ve cost us around $140 AUD for both of us. That’s way over our daily budget and so when our French/Swiss friends said that they were going to try hitch hiking, we decided to do the same!

We’ve gone to the beach every day since being here in Shimoda, Japan. It’s awesome! It made me reminisce on the last time we went swimming in the ocean before here. That was in Iceland! You can read more about it here but I put together a quick clip from the GoPro!
Eb and I said annyeonghikaseyo (good bye) to South Korea, jumped on a 1.5 hour flight and said Konichiwa to Japan! We landed in Osaka where we had planned to meet up with a friend from back home.
