Everything starts anew

Two years has gone by sense I wrote the last time. I just didn't feel like posting for some time, but now I feel that I should take away all the dust and spiderweb from this old blog and start again! Both with text and pictures! 
 
In these two years a lot has happened, I spent another year in Japan and then moved back to sweden again, after two years of studying. Those two years in Japan was among the best time I've ever had, I met friends for life from every part of the world, friends I now miss, and really want to meet again. But I hope that I'll soon will be able to go back there!

Right now I'm busy moving! I've been living with my parents after I got back but now I finally have my own flat! I've been packing for the last couple of days, and I never new I had THIS much stuff! How in the world could I fit all of this in my small room? It almost seems impossible! I'll be movin this monday, I'm exited, scared, happy, confused and every other feelling you can possibly have. But then again, I'm just changing house. It's not like I'm moving to the other side of the whole world. Ehum.. Again..

Nikko


Me and a few friends rent a car and went to Nikko the other day. Nikko is a place I've heard about ever sense I came here and I've wanted to go there for a while. It took about 2-3 hours to get there. We walked around and looked at temples and nature until it closed at 3.30. We ate Yuba Soba at a resturant later. Really good!


On our way back we decided to drive up a mountain with the car. Bad idea. Interesting though. A bit up, we noticed that the fog was quite thick and tried to turn around, but a passing driver told us that it was a one-way road so we had no other choice than to continue on. Everyone in the car was nervous and a bit jumpy. After a while, you could only see the reflexes on the moutainwalls on one side and shadows of trees on the other. It would had been fun if anyine had filmed it, no one were quiet. Everyone was relieved when we started to go down again. But the way down wasn't very easy either. There were a lot of curves! A LOT. I think it took about one hour that little side-trip. And after that we started going home. I want to go back some day, we didn't have time to see everything. Maybe next year?

Universal Studios Japan


If you ever go to Japan, I think you should take a trip past Osaka. We went there this summer. Osaka is kinda like Tokyo, just few people and a bit, I dont know... freer than the people from Tokyo. And one ting you'll HAVE to go to is Universal Studios Japan! If you've been to and liked Disney Land, you will definitely like USJ! You know the film company right? That's the park theme! I'm a movie freak so I was in heaven haha!

After all this is Japan, and Japans number 1 anime/manga is One Piece. I'm a big fan of OP and well... that we found the thing above made me kinda hyper x) If you haven't seen or read one piece, do it! It's great.

Now of to studying... I have mid-term tomorrow and on wednsday and I don't really feel that safe at all.

The Print Club!

I'll tell you about a really great thing about Japan. The fantastic Purikura (プリクラ). If you don't know what it is, I'll tell you. You see the picture of me and my friend Tuva above? That is Purikura. Purikura is short for the japanese expression Purinto Kurabu, a word borrowed from english Print Club.

So what exactly is that? It's a big photo booth with a loooot of colors that you walk in to with a few friends. Usually outside there is a sign that says Girls only, or if a guy want to be there he must bring a girl. You take 6 different photos, with different backgrounds or you choose a theme. When you're finished you go to a little place at the side of the photo booth were you can paint on the photos. You see the hearts and the date on the photo above? That is what you do there. It could be totally crazy if you wanted to!

I like photos so you could guess that this is one of my favorite things in Japan :3 You can fix the light and the size of your eyes, you can put on eyelashes (like the first picture) and change the color of your eyes or hair. Well... I'm to blond so the machine doesn't recognize my hair as hair xD

In some machines you can get the whole chart to the computer. Usually you print out all of the photos and get one or two mailed to you phone, but in some you get all of them. Like this one:
