It has come to my attention that I didn’t actually finish my blog post on the Netherlands trip, but you know it was months ago and so many things had happened and I’m just lazy, so whatever, right? Anyway, as you may have known I went on a two week holiday trip to Japan in November to reunite again with my husband on our annual trip! That is why, starting from this post, I will be doing a series of blog posts of our trip to Japan, aptly named, The DRAMA trip.
Whoa, wait, what? Were there drama happening during the trip? Of course not. Though our relationship is not your picture perfect romance, we like to think we’re a good team, we’re compatible with each other and we don’t resolve to fights when we can’t agree on things. Sure we have our petty fights once or twice, but what relationship doesn’t have petty fights, eh? That being said, DRAMA actually is an abbreviation of Dilchh and RAM Annual. And because the complete title is The DRAMA trip, then it actually means The Dilchh and RAM Annual trip! Ha, I surprised myself sometimes.
Since it’s a two weeks trip, I can’t very well make a 14 series of blog posts, can I? Actually I can, but I’m not going to do it. What I’m going to do instead is divide the blog posts into four parts, Tokyo (pt.1), Sapporo, Hakodate, and Tokyo (pt.2), following our real itinerary of the trip.
Alrighty then, now that the introduction is done, I can now go on and divulge the start of the DRAMA trip!
Four days late, but I have a completely good reason for the lack of posting and for being late this month. I have been on a two weeks holiday to meet up with my husband. We met up in Tokyo, Japan, along with our two friends also. I cannot even begin to tell you how excited I am for the holiday, for a break from the constant misery of living alone in Bogota. That being said, the downside to going on a holiday is that when one is back, one is overcome with extreme holiday hangover. Waking up this morning at 6.30 AM, after going to sleep at 2.00 AM (I’m guessing it’s the jetlag taking over), made me feel like in a daze. Just a day before, I woke up to the grey sky of Tokyo, accompanied by the hustling and bustling of everyone going to work on a Monday morning, and comes Tuesday, I am on my bed, in my apartment, opening my curtain to the blue sky of Bogota and I feel nothing but dread.
Do you know how each week I exaggerated things, by going on to say, “oh this has been a crazy/hectic/roller coaster month,” but then come the next month I would probably say the same thing about the month at hand? Yeah, I know, I do that a lot, but I kid you not, October is just bizarrely crazy, hectic, and such a roller coaster. It’s the triple threat of a month!
Okay, dilchh, calm yourself down. Surely it’s not that much, eh?
But, see, the thing is, October is really just crazy! And hectic! And such a roller coaster!
