🇬🇧 This is a simple shot of one of the many Japanese streets I walked three years ago. When they ask me what Japan is like, the first answer that comes to mind is "HOME". As soon as I landed I felt I belonged there, that this was my place. A belonging that has arrived a little by chance, a little willingly. As a tourist I have been fascinated by everything and I probably didn’t noticed the defects of this country, because every country, as perfect as it may seem, always has some. Despite the misadventures, I have nothing left but a pleasant memory: the most beautiful travel of my life. I can't wait to go back to those numerous tracks where I left a little of myself, and discover new ones. 🇯🇵 • • 🇮🇹 Questo è uno scatto semplice, di una delle tante stradine giapponesi che ho percorso tre anni fa. Quando mi chiedono com’è il Giappone, la prima risposta che mi viene in mente è “CASA”. Appena sono atterrata ho sentito di appartenere lì, che quello era il mio posto. Un’appartenenza che è arrivata un po’ per caso, un po’ volendo. Da turista sono stata ammaliata da tutto e probabilmente non avrò notato i difetti di questo paese, perché ogni paese, per quanto possa sembrare apparentemente perfetto, ne ha sempre qualcuno. Nonostante le disavventure, mi è rimasto nient’altro che un ricordo piacevole: il viaggio più bello della mia vita. Non vedo l’ora di tornare su quelle numerose tracce dove ho lasciato un po’ di me, e scoprirne di nuove. 🇯🇵 • • #japan#homeabroad#japanesestreets

A year has passed since I moved to Japan. I cannot thank my God enough. He’s been so good and faithful to me. It wasn’t an easy beginning. All the struggles, heartaches and painful goodbyes... but it’s all worth it. Although I’m missing my family especially my daughter but I’ve never felt so home. In less than 2 months, I’ll get to see my family again and I’m ecstatic. Thanks to the people who prayed for me especially my family who’s supported me all the way... My Mama and Papa.. mommy @rai_rairodriguez !!! Thank you!!!😭💋 And to my family here in Japan.. thank you. To Kuya Rudy, Ate Luch, Ate Jan, Ate Grace, Tano and Charlene... thank you guys !!!😭❤️ I will forever be grateful. And to everyone at work who’s always been so helpful!!! To my bosses, Peter, Atsuko, Colleen, Basti, and everybody! All of you are amazing. Thank you. 😭❤️ And I love you guys !!!💋 #myfirstyearinjapan#japanishome#gratitudepost#godisgood#spring#springinjapan#wisteria#fujinohana
Missing home....Japan. ♡ I have been pretty tired lately taking on a lot. Tried to rest up this weekend after a migraine took me out Friday night into Saturday. Miss the peacefulness and kindness in Japan. Yoga is the closest thing to that for me now. Even if all I get to do is sit and be mindful of that, it helps a lot. Wishing you all a wonderful week ahead.
