Shinjuku, Japan 

 This may not look like much, but it’s the quiet street that I’ve been calling home while in Japan 😊 After spending so much time moving from place to place, it’s nice to have a central location again. This was also my first test using AirBnB as a rental option for an extended period, and I couldn’t be more pleased. 

 I’ve had the opportunity to start establishing routine (my daily walk to and from Shinjuku station from where I set out to explore Tokyo) which has been something that I feel as though I have been sorely lacking for the majority of the journey. Plus, it doesn’t hurt that living in Tokyo carries a sense of genuine wish fulfillment for me. I’ve been wanting to do this since I was very young. 

 As I plan to take a stop back in the states for a few months before continuing forward, this experience is certainly making me realize what it might be like to truly *live* abroad.
