Ferry that’s not just a ferry

New travel plans people! I borrowed a guide book that recommends taking the ferry as transportation.

That way, I can save on the expensive bullet train and also a night’s accommodation.

My plan now is to go from Fukuoka to Beppu (hot spring town) during the day, and take the night ferry to Osaka.

And perhaps, I can even ride the ferry to Hokkaido for lavenders!

I have to travel faaaaaar

One of my dream bubble has burst. I dream of walking to school with the wind in my hair, smelling the ocean air and not sweating at all.

The dream has come crashing down when I found out from Google Earth that I will be staying very far from Kyushu University during my home stay. And that’s six weeks of squeezing in the train and running to school breathless and sweaty. It will take 30 minutes from home stay to school.


No wonder my accommodation rate was in the lower bracket. Faint.

Daimaou has interfered again.

However, a very good excuse for me to loiter about after school. Good good

Bad bad. Even the subway lines don’t reach there. I’ll have to take JR trains?


Mom says, at least I live near the sea. Yeah… sea breeze
