First Out Of The Country


Hurray! We finally had our first international trip. When I say international trip, well.. yah i've been to Singapore, but that's an exemption since Singapore is where Ynne lives and works. So, a first legitimate travel, Japan!

My girlfriend, Ynne and I visited Japan for the very first time from February 19 to 25, 2015. We were lucky enough to get a free accommodation for 3 nights as Ynne’s aunt lives near the US Navy Base in Japan. Who would say no to that right? We needed to use our money wisely so it was a great decision to check-in in a tidy and affordable hotel in Shinjuku afterwards.

Our Tokyo tour wouldn’t be possible without the travel itinerary and how to’s I got from Sir Ahj, my super cool professor turned close friend.

  • Goodbye Japan

On top of the amazing Tokyo adventure and the freezing cold weather of 2-8 degrees celsius throughout the day, I wouldn’t forget the culture Japan has to offer. It was gruesomely different from what we have in the Philippines. We will truly be back for more, hopefully soon.
