Is the Window Seat Worth It?
I don't know about you, but when I fly I love having a window seat. I'll do whatever I can to make sure I get that window seat. When flying out of the county I just knew I had to get that window seat. 13-hour flight? That's fine, I have a window seat, I'll be comfortable. Boy was I wrong.
When finding out I would be going to Japan I knew there were so many things we needed to explore. Japan is such a fascinating country I want to explore everything. With Nick being here for 2 years I already know he will be able to find lots for us to do. Before leaving, however, I had to do some research of my own. I wanted to find the best destinations for us to explore. Not only that, but Japan is very different from America, so I wanted to make sure I didn't make a fool of myself, or worse, show anyone any disrespect.
How to Travel While Still Making Money
This post is for those people who love to travel but is a little concerned about money. If you're like me, then you probably only work part-time jobs that give no benefits. What this also means is that you don't get paid time off (PTO). So, whenever you want to take a vacation longer than two days, you're pretty much screwed that month. When Nick asked me to come to Japan with him one of the conditions was that I needed to help out with groceries. I was getting a free place to stay and he's paying for well over half of our activities. The least I could do is help with groceries. But, how in the world am I supposed to get a job in Japan?!
New Years in Japan
Almost every year I spend the new year watching the ball drop in New York on TV from my living room. Usually alone I might add. This year, however, was going to be different. This year, I will be in Japan. From the moment Nick asked me to go to Japan, it was our mission to get me there before the new year so we could bring in 2020 right.
