I'm totally jealous...

...of my big sister.

She's off on a HUGE adventure. I'm so excited for her, and at the same time, I'm really freaking envious that it's her and not me! 

She arrived at 3:00 a.m....

in Tokyo. Yup, Japan. 

It's something she's always wanted to do, and she's doing it. All by herself. She'll be spending the next 2 weeks on the other side of the globe, taking pictures, exploring new places, and soaking in all the culture she's been wanting to for ages. 
I'm not that brave. Heck, I get panic attacks when I go to writer's conferences! And I'm usually meeting people I know there. But she doesn't know a soul in Japan. She's just brave enough to go on her own and grab the experiences that she's wanted. I've never been farther away than the Bahamas. Of course, that's been my choice. And this is hers. And I couldn't be more proud of her. 

I've got adventures of my own coming up, but they are much, much different.

Have you ever been anywhere exotic? And have you gone anywhere on your own? Let me live vicariously through your experiences!

  2. Wow! That's amazing. I've traveled a lot, but mostly Europe and never alone. Always been a little nervous...with the safety. Went to the movies alone once; does that count??? One of these days, I will venture out on my own. Hope your sister has the time of her life.

  4. That sounds so adventurous. I would love to visit some of the animal sanctuaries I support. Most are in the US, but it's always been a dream of mine.

  5. I'm afraid to go somewhere where I don't speak the language...who knows what trouble I could get into? I am most brave in new cities looking for used bookstores and crepe restaurants, but that is as far as I go, lol. I hope she has a blast!
