Ready for Departure! – Tokyo Anticipation

It’s finally time! I am flying to Tokyo  tomorrow and I am all kinds of excited!

  • I am nervous because of my health since I have a little bit of a scratchy throat, thus I am worried about the dry air in the plane.
  • I am nervous whether we will make it to the airport on time. We have to wake up at 4am tomorrow, and hit the road at 5am. My flight is at 10.25 am so I wanna be at the airport latest 8.25am.
  • I hope I can find a sim card vending machine at the airport in Japan.
  • I hope I can find my way to the office of my share house where I will have to attend an 1-hour orientation.
  • And then I hope I can finally find my way to my actual share house.
  • I hope I will not be dead after my trip and still find energy to stay awake until around 9pm.

 

I just wished I could skip tomorrow and Friday, and transport myself right into Saturday :D

I also have a job interview on Monday, and somehow, I have a good feeling in my gut. I hope it’s not wrong expectation.

I will definitely come back regularly with new Japan stories!

See you soon, next time from the other side of the World!

The happiest place in China!

It’s finally here! My video about the first time I have been to a Disneyland! Ironically, I had my first Disneyland experience in Shanghai with 25 years old :’D

I still love Disney so much, and half a day was not enough for Disneyland. I will definitely visit more in the future!

 

I hope you enjoyed this video!

Thanks for watching and reading!

On top of the second highest building in the world!| Shanghai Tower

Most people just want to go up the Burj Khalifa in Dubai because it is the highest building in the world, but Shanghai Tower’s observatory deck is actually a little bit higher than Burj Khalifa’s. And after seeing the views from both towers, I can say that the view over Shanghai is more amazing!

You don’t believe me? Check out for yourselves!

I found the Rilakkuma Cafe in Taipei

As you might have seen at the beginning of this year, I went to visit Taipei in January and I was on a mission to find my first ever character café which should be the Rilakkuma Café. I had a hard time finding it, but I am so happy that I didn’t give up the search and eventually, I found it!

Other highlights were: seeing the Taipei Tower, meeting locals, eating street food at the Shilin Night Market, and being attacked by a japanese toilet’s water fountain :’D

You can watch all of that in this video:

Paris – The Beauty of Europe!

I was especially looking forward to watch all my Paris videos again.

Paris is such a beautiful city that I felt like I was back there again. It’s a city where you feel like you are in a dream world. I love this city so much and can’t wait to finally visit again. But until the next trip, I have to be patient while watching this video.

Feel free to comment and like my video or my blog post, and subscribe to my channel as well as this blog.

Thank you for reading and watching!

See you soon!

Just because my Cappadocia videos are over now, doesn’t mean that it was the last series about Turkey.
