Thousands of Miles from Home


My first attempt at flower arrangement, not too shabby 


  • Hi Benjamin,
    I’m a regular reader of Anna-san’s blog, that’s how I found yours - pretty cool here. I like your thrilling reports, sometimes they sound like a movie script, and your pics are interesting and some hillarious. Thanks for giving us such a wonderful insight to life in Japan. Keep on posting and enjoying your stay. Take care, Bibi.

  • Hey Benjamin
    funny picture:)
    just found an old comment of yours on my page so I figured I might as well check how you were (..) seems as if you r still having fun.
    I met Kostya by now, seems like a pretty nice guy, even though we haven't talked much which I feel a bit embarassed about, actually. I just didn't really get around to ask him if he wanted to go somewhere have coffee or something. It's amazing how much faster time's running, just because you're in a place you know so well. I've arrived back home three months ago already! Somehow pretty depressing, but it also means the amount of time I have to spend here is constantely decreasing...
    Before I chat away- all the best for Japan and keep on having fun as you do. It's truely fantastic to see someone use the time abroad as much as you do and to get so much out of it!!!

    Take care, Nora

    we came back from skiing yesterday, you should've been there to see some episodes hehe

    as Anna would say: heaps of snow and heaps of fun hahha

    well, there wasn't THAT MUCH snow, but there was snow... anyway, it was fun.. you should've seen us (some of us) crashing with snowboarding people... uaa... hillarious!

    hope you're doing well, congrats for your ikebana attempt. not so bad, better than me, actually :)

  • Hi Benjamin-kun,
    Nice blog! I remember the first time I was told about the Doll Festival. I imagined that such dolls were actually put upon the stairs of peoples houses and I wondered if many people got injured each year from tripping upon them. Then I visited the house of a friend and it all became clear to me!
    Keep up the good work!
    Ganbarre ne!
