“Travel makes one modest, you see what a tiny place you occupy in this world” – Gustave Flaubert
I recently just had my friend Hafiez tagging us on his long-lost Las Vegas photos, and the one that we all went out of school and took the local bus to the local casino to the local cinema. That was with Camelia, Cordelia, Santhyaa, Rayvern and Alfred. I would never forget that Superman movie which I watched and fell asleep in the cinema in the New Orleans. That was the first week of school in UNLV main campus.
This is the post that I posted previously
I miss travelling so much. The most extensive one which was year 2013 – this year in June – July which I am really thankful that I had so many adventures of my own. Caused a disappearance on the last day of school which I was supposed to catch a flight to look at the hotels and the casinos that I did not had a chance to do so previously due to school projects and poor time management. I caused so much trouble to all my classmates and they all went out to the Strip to look for me. I was very safe at that point in time. I felt that I owe everyone an explanation on what had happened. I am thankful to all of the mates that went around to look for me and I am sorry that I had caused so much trouble for everybody.
Despite all the above, I am lucky that I was able to make it on time to the plane and reached Japan safe and sound which then i was on my own again to explore Harajuku then Kiddy Land. Had my first bowl of ramen in Harajuku and observing how things are being done. Exploring the town on my own and finding out that most shops closed at 9pm. Still felt unsatisfied and walked into a neo-print shop and put some money into the capsule machine and got some AKB48 capsule which had a RINO handphone strap. Following that, on the next day, I met up with Kato-san and she brought me to tour Mount Fuji and the Fuji Five Lakes using the local bus tour. After that I was guided to the Natsu Matsuri at Yasukuni Jinja. It was a summer festival that I wanted to see for myself for the longest time ever which I got to see it for real.
The next day Kato-san guided me around Tokyo and we went to Shinjuku’s Takashimaya for Suki-yaki; Opposite Isetan for Matcha Kaki-gori; Akihabara for AKB48 Cafe and Shop and the electronics building; Asakusa for Kaminari-mon and Tokyo Skytree which was a 20-30minutes walk-away. While viewing the Skytree, it made me more determined to come back and visit and explore Japan again. There were indeed many things to look, see and enjoy.
In travelling, one would lose their way and mind. It is always important that one is able to find him/herself, pick up and move ahead from where they lost their way.
