Today’s community post is a travel blog interview with Kelly of Real World Travelers. Kelly has been kind enough to provide us with a look into her and her husband’s world of living abroad in Japan while teaching English and seeing the world. Please check out their site at Real World Travelers and subscribe. They’re an inspirational couple that show us that it is possible to do long term travel with your partner and have a blast doing so.
Remember if you want to be featured please head over to the interview form and let me know who you are and what you’ve been up to.
You should check out our site out because while the idea of a travel website is not new, we feel like as a young married couple still paying off student loans and working full-time, we have a different perspective from someone who is able to travel full-time without any other “real-life” obligations.
Lou Malnati’s, I’m dreaming of you!
We hope to one day re-create that trip with our kids, along with visiting every National Park in America.
We waited in line outside the Tsukiji Reservation Office from about midnight until 2 a.m., waited with 120 other people in a cramped inner sanctum-type room until 5 a.m., and then were ushered into the auction area for a 20 minute viewing slot.
Afterwards, we had to walk back to our Airbnb (about an hour walk away), because the trains weren’t running that early in the morning and the market itself doesn’t open until 10 a.m.
I’d go back to Tsukiji to see the market, but I would never recommend going to the Tuna Auction.
My favorite so far has been the snow monkeys! The monkey park was really off the beaten path, and the monkeys get SO close to you! I had never seen a monkey up close in the wild before, and I was just blown away. It was incredible.
There’s also the fact that I’m trying to keep up a website and YouTube channel while also working full-time as an English Teacher. Sometimes it’s hard to remain present in my actual job, because I’d much rather be doing something else. AKA traveling and writing about it.
I have a Canon 5D Mark II, so it’s pretty bulky, but DEFINITELY something I never go on a trip without.
Don’t believe the lie that living adventurously is impossible, and start making choices that will help you live out your dreams and accomplish your goals.
