yesterday i spent half of my day reading blogs of people who have left their jobs and homes and went to travel around the world. their stories were amazing but at the same time i felt a bit sad. i felt like they are living their lives to the fullest and i'm just at home sitting and studying. my life is so static right now.

the above pictures are from my last year travels. last year i have visited 10 countries. this year none so far. but that's about to change in two weeks.

great shots!! i love travelling too, i wish japan wasn't so far away from other countries, we always have to get on the plane to go out of the country and it's expensive :( Well, that's not a good excuse is it... I always think "I work hard for my next holiday!!" yay.

satu: i agree with you! so nice that we will live so close to each other for a moment!

at swim-two-birds: thank you.

hiki: well i dont travel that much to neighboring countries either. i would love to explore more russia, sweden and norway. for some reason i always go far away :) collecting money for travel makes you more motivated at work!

Agata: I'm going back to South Korea :)
