    Konnichiwa and Nay hao ma? hahahaha…

    Read above! So have any of you ever been to Japan or Hong Kong? Well, I’ve never been to either, but hope on visiting both, I’m so fascinated with Japan and Hong Kong, read travelogues, seen them on the travel channel, those are definitely two destinations I plan on visiting at least once in my lifetime. If you’ve been to either one, I’d love to hear your thoughts and feedbacks, likes and dislikes of them.

    My boyfriend has been back to Japan (Tokyo and Kyoto) like a zillion times, since he has relatives there and his grandparents are there. I also hope to visit all of Southeast Asia and Western Europe, not too spellbound by Eastern Europe, but Europe and Asia are definitely at the top of my list.

    One of my good friends back in college, Diana who’s Cantonese went to Hong Kong to do her study abroad and she brought back cool souvenirs, postcards, etc. for me and I still have all of them…they have some of the most amazing skyscrapers and architectural structures there, same goes for Japan. They’re crazy with their technology. I remember my boyfriend brought back a talking watch from his last trip to Japan, Im like wow, they have those in japan, so funny! :D

    sounds like you want to do a lot of traveling.

    you should’ve enlisted in the military. as a marine, i’ve been there, done that, and got the damn t-shirt. i don’t mean to sound like a recruiter, but i’ve been to dallas, nyc, florida, cali, airbases in canada, enland, japan, australia, turkey, germany, iceland, EVERYWHERE.

    as a c-130 flight mech, our planes couldn’t land on ships at sea, so we stayed at airbases throughout the world. and most of the time, our co would fly with us, and he didn’t want to stay on base, so we each would whip out our government issued visa card and billed the tax payers for nights in the marriot. and how are we gonna visit the local spots without vehicles?!! whip out the visa card and rent us some suv’s and go crazy in town.

    sure, there were hard work involved, nuc bio chem training, all that physical training, working for days straight to complete the mission, but when we work hard, we play hard.

    just a thought, since you stated you wanted to see the world.

    My brother lived in Japan for a couple of years.
    My sister is living in Japan at the moment.
    I visited Japan for about a week… stayed at Kyoto, Nara, and Osaka.
    I plan to go again next year to visit my sister.
