Travel Log & Hobbies

Dean Slater - 21, Currently based in Osaka

99 luftballoons is playing while I drink this delicious kakao. Everything is forgiven.

14 hours of flying and 7 hours layover (2 in Shanghai and 5 in Stockholm) to finally arrive in Estonia at 00:00. First time in Europe and guess who has to wait for a morning bus to Parnu. Wandered for a few hours around the Tallinn airport after being told to gtfo with my luggage and I have stumbled across a convenient store with tables and a charge station. I can feel my toes again yo. Welcome to Estonia -.-
Thinking about bringing something with me

Can’t wait to try and explain to customs what a Stage ACT Trident is.

so drunk for m the sushi bar. I am currently uanbtle to edit pics. But I need to pack, so if I sobere up in a few hours, pictures and a post to come from my final night here ebfoer estonia.

also i ats a fish while that mofo was still twistching and staring at me. He was goddamn delcious though.

side ntoe. If this is my last post from japan, I want it known that this was a dam n fine way to go

Just came back from the public baths/yu. Being surrounded by the heat and old man dong sobered me right up. After all that the most uncomfortable part is still the old woman who sits there watching you undress and clean up afterwards. I like the consistency though. Kyoto and osaka both delivered on that end.

I have 5 hours before I walk out the door and I need to pack still. I have no clue how I’m going to get this crap into 4 bags and under the max weight but here I go. At least I have peach tea and a vanilla cone to comfort me

This Place Has Got No Soul, Kid by Voxtrot

I went to Kyoto and finally sent everything off..I went there not expecting to be able to afford sending everything back but somehow I did it.

I woke up an hour late yesterday morning after working most of the night. I got up and ran with my toast (—hanging from my mouth of course—) to the station where I train hopped for an hour and a half to Kyoto. I got there at 11:30 - already running late I made two new boxes. By noon I had a total of 17 boxes I was expecting to send piece by piece off by boat. It was then recommended to me that I should combine as many things into bigger boxes to cut that number in half and save as much as possible.

I went around Kyoto for an hour and asked for boxes at the conbini’s and supa’s around town - finally getting a few that were big enough to get the job done. After that I was asked to lunch where I was able to have some Sichuan style food. That was awesome. Chinese food is the best..especially after half a year of not having any.

I went back to packing at around 1:30. 5 boxes down and I was already out and things are coming together..but I needed more boxes and it’s 3:30. I got back at 4 with more boxes. I wrote everything up on the shipping slips and ran those boxes to the post at around 4:30. The other 3 boxes were being worked on by the fam I used to live with and I ran back to do the write ups and they started taking them to the post as I finished. We would alternate positions to where they stayed and got my receipts for me as I ran back and forth getting boxes there, paying, getting slips. etc. That was the entirety of my 16:00-16:59. At 4:59 — a minute before the post closed I got the last box in. 8 boxes, 86 kg, and coming in just under what I budgeted for shipping..it was done..completely unexpected, but I no longer have anything to call my own in Kyoto.

Completely relieved and a bit saddened by that last realization I went around to some my favorite spots that were nearby. Places I used to go have lunch by myself or with housemates and Saori. I got my favorites snacks (for old times sake) and biked along the Kamogawa. I got to see the Sakura’s begin to fall and go away while I sat and took it all in. It was a great day.

Not my game but rather a gift for the-ankle-rocker I picked up a little while back. I took pictures of 3 of his 6 Fami titles for fun (I am not spoiling the rest), and took this as a chance to practice capturing from emulators and making GIFs. Special thank you to usalix for being a swell dude and helping make the GIF learning process easier on my end. Thanks again man.
