Shit just got real

Today I paid for our first months rental in Japan. 

"There is no turning back now!", said with both exhilaration and trepidation as Biki worriedly chewed his bottom lip. 

And so the first steps into our grand adventure have been taken.

Would you like to see where we will be?

This is outside of Kyoto, only a 15 minute $3.08 bus ride away.  This should be good for TH to ease him into a triple month experience of living completely immersed into a different culture.  Before we had our son and daughter in law to help us with the language barrier, now we are on our own.


  1. Nice place! When is the big trip?

  2. You are so brave!! Total immersion into a culture that speaks Spanish or French would be hard enough, even with their similar language. But total immersion into the Japanese culture/language must be WAY harder. Good luck and best wishes! Be sure to keep us posted via your blog.

  3. Sounds like a great adventure! ^_^

  4. Wow... Living in Japan. Good for you.
