Oh, hello there. Long time, no talk.
I posted twice on my blog for the entire year of 2016. And now being half way through 2017, you could have assumed I was dead (if you haven’t been following me on social media).
Sometimes it’s hard to keep up with the blog since a lot of time goes into writing and finding the right photos and whatnot. Working full time and having some kind of a social life, doesn’t leave a lot of time for sitting down and writing. Plus, I’ve been trying to grow a bit on YouTube so I’ve been focusing my free time into making videos. This has left the blog a little forgotten.
But enough about that. This blog post is about me making a comeback. So, let me fill you in with what has been happening (though if you want to know the full story, go check out my YouTube Channel and you’ll get to know EVERYTHING I’ve been up to – this blog post is just the basics).
What has been happening?
Well, first off, I’ve moved to Japan.

I kinda left my blog postings off at the end of my time living in New Zealand. After New Zealand, I went back to Canada and decided to apply for the JET Programme to teach English in Japan.
This idea actually originated while in New Zealand. I was talking to a girl from Germany and within that conversation, I realized that I always loved languages and I enjoyed helping my friends in Germany with English so maybe I would like teaching it. Living in Japan has been something I’ve wanted to do since I was a teenager and with this idea to teach English, it would be a great opportunity to finally move to Japan.
So, obviously I was accepted into the JET Programme and after only 10 months back in Canada, I moved to Japan. This brings us to August 2016 (yea, almost a year ago. I’m really great at updating my blog)
I’m placed in a small town on Kyushu and I’ve decided to stay another year. I enjoy my work here and there are so many more thing I want to do and accomplish in Japan that there was no way I could complete everything in one year. I’ve been settling in to my life in Japan. I have travelled to a few areas around Japan and even took a trip to Seoul, South Korea too. Things have been pretty good for me lately.

What is happening with this blog?
I want to get this blog up and running again.
The first step would be to add in posts about the things I’ve made videos on but haven’t mentioned here yet (first up, that trip to Fiji I took post-New Zealand). I’ll be posting about my videos as they come out on here for those not subscribed to my YouTube Channel.
I also want to add in all the extras though. There are some things that don’t quite work with the video format. I think this blog would be a good spot to get out all the in-between stuff. I admit, I’m not too sure how frequent those would be especially since I’m thinking about posting YouTube video more than once a week. But I guess we can see how it goes.
Basically, I wanted to make a blog comeback. I have this site (which does cost money) so I should use it. Maybe I can reach new people. Maybe I can find a way to express myself creatively here. I guess this is a comeback but also an experiment. This is trying something new.
Much Love and Happy Travels,
