And She’s Back!

The “Florida girl” playing with snow

After two weeks of Christmas, New Years, Hokkaido, Tokyo, Shirakawa, snow, skiing, ramen, world heritage sites, fancy hotels, and making progress on that bucket list, I’m finally back where I started: good ole’ Ibaraki, Japan.

As if my lack of posting doesn’t tell you how much fun I’ve had, I’ll be sure to show you pictures from the whole journey. Apparently, I was pretty good a skiing back in the day! Apparently snowboarding isn’t like riding a bike! Apparently, I don’t know any French! Ok, well I already knew the last one. But still! Hope you’re ready for a week of catching up.

Akemashite omedetou! Happy New Year!

  1. Hi Jess,

    Wow I am so jealous you got to see all these beautiful places. You’re really lucky. I’ve always wanted to go travelling around the world and just live freely. I really admire you for doing this. I just moved to Florida (Tampa Bay area) to be exact, it’s almost like a little vacation for me. I saw you were a Florida girl yourself in your last post.

    Anyway I wanted to nominate you for a Blogger Award because I think you have really outdone yourself. You are brave for just living your life to the fullest. I think so many things hold us back when we’re growing but you have decided that you’re gonna see the world no matter what. That’s really awesome. The details are at

    I look forward to your next post where ever you are. Keep on writing!

    • Aw thank you so much!! This has definitely made my day 🙂

      Living in Florida was definitely always like a little vacation, with the beach right around the corner. I hope you enjoy your time there as much I as I enjoyed mine! Be sure to visit Orlando when you get the chance!

      Thanks again for the nomination, it means a lot to me! That anyone reads my little blog blows my mind. Anyone enjoying it enough to nominate it, I can’t express what that means to me! I’ll be sure to follow the rules and spread the love!

Let me know what you think!
