What a year it’s already been for me! I spent one month in the Philippines during the winter. Luzon and Palawan were great experiences. These days I enjoy snorkeling because of my Philippines trip. Before my visa expired I went to Beijing, China. Expansive best describes Beijing. There were a lot of holidays during the semester which were opportunities for me to travel. I seized upon them and made my way to Fukuoka, Japan one weekend. Now that the summer vacation is upon us I will return to the States to be with my family. I will have a chance to visit Tokyo for 10 hours during my layover. That’s music to my ears. Japan, here I come again!
