Northern Japan

What a day. In an effort to totally avoid paying for hotels we have worked out an elaborate system of only taking night trains, where we can sleep as we travel.

Today that landed us in Aomori, a small city in Northern Japan. After spending two hours researching things to do there, I had found only one possibility: eat apples. The city is known for having good apples, and nothing else whatsoever.

With 14 hours before our next train to Sapporo, we had to find something else to do. To fuel our brainstorming we found a little trendy Italian restaurant called Piccolo. Even one-street towns in Japan have restaurants with beautiful interior design. It's important here. We lucked out - they use high quality ingredients, make their own sauces, and use extra virgin olive oil.

My welcome, some info on me, my goals and about the blog.

On The Rocky Road To Nihon

So, what's up my good people?

Writing a first post is actually quite hard, because you will never know what to write first. That's why this post is mainly about nothing, and yet everything I can think of at the time.

#1 So, first things first, I write this blog because I want to prove to myself that I can do something for a longer period of time. You could call that a self-improvement method.

#2 My posts will be quite chaotic, but the main subjects will be: My road to Japan, Games, Movies, my look on the world.

#3 I think it's time for my goals now. My main goal is: Study in Japan and maybe move there for good. I'm learning Japanese and preparing myself for the exams. I still have around 2 or so years to the exams, but I believe that the earlier I start, the better. Living in Japan has been my dream since I was 7. A lot of people tell me, that this dream will wear off, but I don't really think so. My particular liking towards the Japanese culture (And I'm not talking about manga, neither the Kimonos and samurais. Let's grow up a little people.) may give me some rose-tinted glasses, but I try to be as realistic on the matter as I can. The rest of the goals? Become a programmer, get a good job and simple stuff like that. And I also like writing about things that seem interesting to me.
