Konnichiwa Tokyo!

Ohayou Gozaimasu! Good Morning!

My, oh my, how excited we are about this week...

We're off to Japan tomorrow!! As you might know, we have been invited by the Okinawa Tourism Board to experience 3 local islands, where we will do exactly the things that we love:

get active (snorkeling and kayaking), eat well (local food and even a sake tasting... which they called 'sake inspection' heehee), learn something (visiting a historic village and wildlife conservation centre) and see art and design (we will learn how to make a typical Japanese textile)

Then we'll continue onto Tokyo on our own, where we have a couple more days exploring ahead of us (Nick says: architecture! robots! Nienke says: owl cafe! 100yen shop!)

It's a special trip for me (Nienke) as Tokyo was the first stop on my solo world travels in 2006 and we'll go back to the hostel where I started my first blog 10 years ago. I also visited here in 2008 with my brother, so yes... a bit emotional all together! 

By the way, did you know I've been slowly translating and uploading all the old blog posts from that first blog onto The Travel Tester? Check them here, more soon!

We will keep you updated as much as we can through Instagram, Snapchat and of course as soon as we're finished sightseeing... on the blog! Make sure to also follow our fellow travellers on the Okinawa-part of the trip: @globalhelpswap and @nomadicboys

For now it's: Ja Mata! See you later!
and have a great week yourself xx
