Well I DID write a journal entry before but something happened so I guess devi didn't upload it right? Glitch? Whatever.
Some of you noticed I put the sketches up ^^
Just something to get back into the spirit of drawing. I completed the rough outlines of my next nuzlocke page! I'll locate my pens (where did my family put them?!?!) and the next page should be up very soon! Then I'll move back to college. And once I move in, another page coming up!
How was my trip to Japan?
I was stationed in the southern island of Kyushu. And Kyushu was the inspiration behind Hoenn so in a way, I was on a pokemon adventure of my own.
Weather wise, I think Hoenn nailed Kyushu's patterns. It was either pouring waterfalls of rain on top of me or it was super hot & humid. Very tropical feeling. Lots of tall trees, little islands, beautiful ocean views, all that awesome stuff. I did experience a typhoon (which is actually close to Kyogre awakening xD). Luckily, the Japanese make strong umbrellas.
I was mostly in Fukuoka which is an AMAZING city I have come to love. Cool stuff to do, love the shopping, beaches are perfect to have fun or relax at, people are very nice, I could go on. However I did get two temporary transfers to Tokyo (1 week) and Kagoshima (3 days). Tokyo was a blast to explore and so much to do! Kagoshima is cool too though the volcano nearby coughed up ash which turns out, I have an allergic reaction too. Oh and the fact that the volcano had a 90% chance of exploding so I had to evacuate the area.
And any of you wondering, yes I did visit the Pokémon Center. Actually, I visited three. All of my locations had them! So I did some of my shopping there. There's a ton of items you can get in Japan that you can't get anywhere else; even internet makes it crazy expensive. How does a mega shiny rayquaza doll sound? Or a Pikachu wearing a yukata? Heck, look at my profile pic on my devi page. At the time I wrote this post, I took a picture in Fukuoka Tower with my sailor Pikachu! After that pic, a snack with eevee shaped cookies. ^^
I think travelling was one of the best decisions I've ever made. I really hope to do it again someday! Heck, I want to go back to Japan to experience even more!
Any questions about Japan, just ask! I'm happy to answer questions!
