Churaumi Aquarium Field Trip

Went to Churaumi Aquarium for a work field trip yesterday. It is the second largest aquarium in the world. The sea creatures were so beautiful & the whale shark was enormous. I'm a pisces & something about the water & the animals was so comforting to me. It made me want to hop in there & go swim with them :P The dolphin show was very cute & there was also a live scuba show where the diver talked about the different animals. Can't wait to go again on my own time. :)

Postcard to Poland & a Letter to England!

Sorry to Ankyls because this is a bit of a spoiler since the Okinawa postcard is for you! The other day I got mail from my pen pal in Poland. I was so pleased to get all of these beautifully photographed pictures of Anna's neighborhood & a very cool Polish penny! I will show everybody the mail she send me in a later post. She's a cute girl with an amazing blog so go check it out & follow her! ANKYLS
After posting my excitement on instagram, I got a comment from a girl in England who wants to be pen pals as well. Being a hopeless romantic & believing that life should be like in a movie I cling to older forms of communication. Growing up I had always wanted dozens of pen pals but was not responsible enough to keep in touch with them. I do enjoy the benefits of technology but there is something so special & thrilling about waiting for a mail man to bring a letter from a complete & total stranger.

Free Moments in Okinawa

I have been so busy with work & college that I have neglected this blog completely. But soon I will be taking a vacation to Chicago & there will be many blog posts to come. I am so excited. Here are some random pictures of my life in Okinawa from the past month or two. Lately I have been so busy that when I have a moment of freedom I walk my dogs by the beach, drink wine, play video games & eat yummy foods. Haven't been out on the town too much.
