My Japan adventure!

Every Friday for the next few weeks I will be posting photos (some mine, some my boyfriend's!) and drawings about my November trip to Japan – so please check back if you'd like to read more!

 

When I first started planning my trip, the major thing I was looking forward to was shopping!! I had dreamed of shopping in Japan for over 10 years now… which sounds kinda silly but I love interesting clothes and accessories to express myself with, and I've often found inspiration from brands in Japan. So to begin my Japan posts, I thought I'd include a little sketch I made before leaving of hopeful items to find on our trip. Some of these things I found and bought, some I didn't. 

 

 

 

However, while I thought shopping would be the major highlight of my trip, I was pleasantly surprised and proved wrong! This list quickly became the last thing on my mind as I tried to take in all the adventure and excitement around me.

It's taken me a while to collect my thoughts and feelings about this trip since it moved me greatly… But hopefully the delay in posting will be worth it! ;) Japan is such a beautiful and inspiring country and I look forward to sharing posts over the next few weeks about my adventures there!

    I love your little doodle! Can’t wait to hear all about your trip, I’ve been waiting to see what you thought and did on your trip!
    I have to say, ever since I visited Japan for my honeymoon in 2010, I’ve thought about going back. There’s just something about it that I love. If I do ever go back, I’d like to learn at least a little Japanese first.
