Japan through little squares

Japan through little squares
Hey there Pumpkins! :hionigiri:
Long time no see! I feel bad for not updating from Japan but we were always on the move and every day went by so quickly that I barely had time to recharge my nekophone. Telling you about the stay in Japan will probably fill up quite some blog entries but starting with some kind of overview will allow me to go through the lived time once more and to sort out my memories. After all two months are a long time and many things we saw and did at the beginning of our travelling already seem far away.

1. Had a really bad cold and no voice at all.. 2. Snow on the second day of our road trip 3. Udon at a Momiji Matsuri 4. Momiji leaves 5. Yummy Indian curry and naan 6. In the subway in Sapporo 7. Hot meal after a long and wet walk on the typhoon day 8. View from the Sapporo train station 9. Last day of our road trip

Those of you who follow me on instagram will probably hate me now know because it’s all the pics from there but I think they look pretty all put together and they all have such different colors and moods.

1. Autumn leaves in the Takino Suzuran park 2. Satoruchan 3. Little pretty shrine 4. Hirokun 5. Yummy Ramen I had in Biei 6. Obaasan’s beans 7. …and veggies..mmmmh! 8. Coco and neko 9. Studying math

We stayed on Hokkaido for two weeks and afterwards took the ferry to Tsuruga on Honshu and visited Kyoto, Nara and Osaka. Kyoto is so rich in shrines, temples and beautiful green space that it’s easy to forget that you’re actually in a city.

1. Silvan trying to eat the sticky rice cake 2. Buddha statue at the Ninnaji 3. Bamboo forest near the Inari shrine 4. In a tiny tea shop in Kyoto 5. Jizo statues 6. Business men eating Ramen 7. At the Inari shrine :3 8. Yummy sweets and old young lady 9. Tsubaki flower and Torii

1. Kasuga Taisha grand shrine in Nara 2. All cheeky on my bicyle 3. Strawberry dream cake 4. All pink and cute 5. Best Ramen in Kyoto 6. Being silly while waiting for the food 7. Taiyaki at the Inari shrine, so good! 8. Yasaka temple 9. Neko with fox ears at the Ninnaji

From early till mid November we travelled around Kyushu and finally had the chance to set up our tent and enjoy some mind blowing places. The food, people and nature were incredible and I wish we had stayed even longer.

1. Giant moth 2. On mount Aso 3. Kannon buddha in Nagasaki 4. Dangoteishoku – so yummy! 5. I love traditional Japanese rooms 6. At the Jomon museum in Uenohara 7. Sakurajima 8. Kitsune Udon 9. Almost there! hello Kyushu

Hey there pumpkins! :nekopaw:
First of all, thank you for the sweet and encouraging comments on my last bento! And sorry for not having posted something in probably three weeks. I feel really awful especially since it’s difficult to find the right blogging pace again.
Summer holidays are over so I thought it was about time to show you some impressions of my two weeks in Liguria. Of course I had my Nikon with me but I need some more time to sort the pictures I took. So here’s a little preview with the phone pics I took~

As you may know from my last blog entry I’ll be off to Japan for two months!!! I haven’t managed yet to plan anything but that’s probably because I’m still not aware of the fact that I’m really leaving at the beginning of October. That’s it for now Cuties! I’ll keep you up to date with my travel planning and also with some outfit shots I made shortly before leaving for Italy. :hai:


Hallo Ihr Lieben! :rabukuma:
Vielen lieben Dank für die netten und ermutigenden Kommentare zu meinem letzten Bento! Und entschuldigt die lange Abwesenheit… ich fühle mich schrecklich! Besonders, weil es so schwierig ist, wieder in den richtigen Blogrhythmus zu kommen.
Die Sommerferien sind vorbei und es ist höchste Zeit, euch ein paar Bilder von den zwei Wochen in Ligurien zu zeigen. Ich hatte natürlich auch meine Nikon dabei, aber ich brauche noch etwas mehr Zeit, um die Fotos zu sortieren. Hier also eine kleine Vorschau mit den Bildern von der phone cam.
Wie ihr vielleicht vom letzten Eintrag wisst, werde ich bald für zwei Monate in Japan sein!!! Ich bin noch nicht dazu gekommen, irgendetwas zu planen, aber das liegt wahrscheinlich daran, dass ich noch gar nicht realisiert habe, dass ich Anfang Oktober wirklich schon gehe. Das wars auch schon für jetzt! Ich werde euch, was meine Reiseplanerei betrifft, auf dem Laufenden halten und hab auch noch ein paar outfit Fotos, die ich kurz vor der Abreise nach Ligurien gemacht habe.

Life through little squares

Hello there Beauties and Cuties of the Blogosphere! :ballerina:
I’m so happy that it’s Saturday and that I can finally start reading all the blog posts I missed! Since I got the new computer my rss reader doesnt work anymore and I haven’t found a suitable replacement for it yet but I will find one now. The last few weeks have all been quite similar and my awful time management makes it difficult to do the things I like besides uni. :sleep:
What definitely lifts my mood though is the sunny yet almost warm weather we’ve been having the last few days. Spring officially started and instead of snowing it’s finally raining again! I love the smell of wet soil especially in spring because it doesn’t smell so much like asphalt as during summer. Snowdrops have started to pop up and I wake up by the chirping birds. But I guess you’ve all been experiencing the same lovely aspects of spring. That is if you live in the northern hemisphere. :catexclam:

:sprout: 1. bye bye old mac book, I already miss you! :sprout: 2. Beef with vegetables and rice – ok but not good :sprout: 3. noodles with beef and veggies – not very good :sprout: 4. me, derping around 5. Bought my first dvd in years :sprout: 6. Easter deco at the Franz Carl Weber (toys store) :sprout: 7. at the main station :sprout: 8. Birthday flowers from my mum to Silvankun :sprout: 9. Snowdrops! :sprout:

Are you ready for the instagram rush? I’ve assambled quite the collection during the last months so here’s a little list of the past insta entries.

It’s funny how the amount of pictures slowly increased and I admit that I’m an avid instagram user. I like to look at the past snap shots and to remember moments and places I had forgotten about. How about you? Do you often take pictures with your phone? It’s obviously more fun if your phone has a good cam and I’m so glad I upgraded to an iphone. It’s not that I like how they work but the cam is totally worth it (at least for me :tanoshii: ). I must be quite obsessed with it.. :etone:

:sprout: 1. In the car with Nina :sprout: 2. Late night coffee with Mr. moustache :sprout: 3. Totoro on my bag :sprout: 4. So proud of my planner! :sprout: 5. Map of an imaginary island :sprout: 6.

Omg, ok it’s really a looooooot impressions. Sorry for the images flood!! It’s been over a month since the last insta update..
I can’t wait for the week off on the beginning of April! Originally we had in mind to go to London but we haven’t booked anything yet so we’ll see. But I hope that I finally will have some real time off to visit places, take pictures and cooooook! (…make Bento). That’ s it for now cuties~ Im off to dreamland.
