Glad you're enjoying it (he said with gritted teeth, trying to choke down feelings of deepest envy).

Will you be doing a write-up after you get back? It'd be really good to hear about what you did and where you went, things turned out to be different to what you expected, things that were more difficult than you thought they'd be--and, of course, the things that were exactly how you'd hoped they'd be.

Ernie-san,
Wow, that's great to know that your Japanese is getting better and better. :wink:
Kyoto is a lovely city!
And, like マイケルsan requested, it'd be great if you could share some information about your visits and experiences in Japan!
Enjoy your dream live! :wink:

If those are the minor notes, I can't help wondering what the major notes are like...

:D

Ok. So I'm back home in Australia. Back to reality. I'll make a short note again on minor and major notes
Minor:
Need to reasearch about phone rental with data... Came home with a Giant phone bill... I rented a phone in Japan that can only make calls. I needed fb and hotmail in japan just to meet up with some people :)
-Need to check exchange rates. I swear I was getting ripped off 99% of the time there.
Major:
-Need to get started in learning Katakana and Kanji.
-Should plan out a list of tourist attractions and places i want to head to.
-Should upgrade my subscription so I can have assessments on my japanese progress.


I guess I'll make a blog soon. I got photos to show :)

p.s: Next mission. JLPT N5 test :shock:
