If you’re one of the readers that has read Lolita Wonderland for a while, you might vaguely remember a blogpost with a picture that really resembles this one. It was quite a while ago, in February, that I posted this blogentry, in which I wrote I would go to Tokyo, Japan in summer if I had graduated. The original plan was to go in August.
You might have noticed August is long gone and September has also passed. What happened? Did we cancel the trip?
Well, we didn’t. We simply decided on a different date! ^^ It turned out that my father, who I will travel with, had a major pile of paperwork that could only be done in August. He had also discovered that August is a terribly hot month in Japan. That’s why he suggested to go in October and eventually we decided on October 10th to be the start of our trip.
Yes my dear readers, today is the day I leave for Tokyo~!
We will be staying for ten days. Mon Dieu, I am so excited and nervous! It’s been years since I’ve flown with an airplane and the idea of going to a completely different continent is so amazing! My father is also really excited, this is all new to him too. I don’t know what to expect, but I’m hoping it will be a blast! I created a whole folder of information and guides and I tried to answer all of my own questions, like how to get to Tokyo from the airport, how the metrosystem works and where all the shops I want to visit are. I also have a language guide, with handy and funny sentences (the sentences differ from predictable ones like ‘Where is the restroom?’ to interesting ones like ‘I only want to be interrogated by a female officer’).
Unfortunetaly, I will have to miss both my mother and brother. And the dogs of course. It’s going to be hard for me, since I’m always a little homesick and I find it very hard to be without my mom. But now I’m going to be further away from home than I’ve ever been! Luckily, I have my father with me. ^^ And we have Skype, so I’ll be able to talk to my mom (and hopefully brother, when he’s not at school) every day.
I’m planning on making tons of pictures and I’ll also film things. When I’m back, I’ll write a full report of all my adventures!
Dewa mata suguni ne~! ♥
See you soon~! ♥
