I’m back! It’s been a while but I’m in Canada now. Land of no VPN. For those who are blessed to not have to experience firewalls, The Great Firewall of China blocks most foreign social media (Facebook, Youtube, Snapchat, etc) and Google! So I couldn’t even use (debatably) the world’s best search engine.
But anyways, back to Japan. We got to Osaka and our hotel was super nice. But everything went downhill from there. I’ll tell a long story short:
We’ were struck by a 6.1 magnitude earthquake at 8am in the morning in Osaka that really woke us up (we were on the 23rd floor). So we had to walk down 23 flights of stairs. I know, fun. But no one was hurt, thankfully. We were a little scared of aftershocks, so we decided to get out of there. We took an overnight bus the same day to Hiroshima. Got to our airbnb, and was thoroughly disappointed. It was dirty and it really did not fit 4 people unlike its description. But because our airbnb was free (I’m not going into that story), and it was raining the next few days in Hiroshima, we decide to take another overnight bus to Fukuoka. I mean, definitely saving hotel + transportation money, right? So we get to Fukuoka very sleep deprived but hey, we stayed at a nice hostel for a few days.
Fast forward to after Japan. We all parted ways and I stayed in China for a few days with a travel buddy before heading off to Canada. And now I’m here.
Oh, Canada. Home, sweet home.
