I really wish to travel these days. Where do I want to travel?

I want to go to Japan – really badly! Before you think it’s because I’m some anime freak or it’s because I like video games that come from Japan, read on because you’re wrong!

I think I’m at that age (24 and a half) where I want a drastic change in scenery, if only for a short time. For some that have known me for a max of two years, you’d think I’m the type who just stays indoors and plays video games. You may then ask “why don’t you just do stuff out in the world?” I wasn’t always so reclusive. I used to go out and party all over, I went up and down California’s beaches, I’ve been to Washington D.C., I’ve been to Mexico, and I’ve done many things with my life.

Many people who do wish to travel usually think about Europe – for some reason. None of the countries in Europe interest me. Japan, on the other hand, interests me very much. It’s been on my mind since I was a kid. I even did a school report on it when we were to choose any country in the world. I’ve talked about it with my family and they’ve been kind of meh about it. Then after the whole nuclear disaster, which many people seem to have forgotten, they started freaking out about the whole damn thing. It doesn’t matter to me, I still wish to go. I want to experience the huge culture shock and see something completely new. I don’t know much Japanese, so obviously that’d be a problem. I wonder how much translators cost. The people, not electronic things or whatevs.

I know of a few people who’ve been to Japan, and I kind of know someone who currently lives there. They all say it’s awesome. Most people say many countries other than the US are awesome, unless it’s some third world country who need food and stuff. I know of people who have been to those countries either to help people or because their family is from there.

Anyways, that’s just my thoughts on it. I know I have to go to Japan someday before I die! I hope some day soon I can go.
