Hey guys! I know it has been awhile since I have posted, but I was enjoying time with family and friends before moving back to Japan! I have been back in Hiroshima for a little over a week, and I am still trying to get into the swing of things. Jet lag is no joke, and I don’t think my body will every get use to the travel. I feel like after flying to the same country so many times your body should say, ” Okay, this is normal, I’m not going to make you feel like a walking zombie for a week this time.” I’ll keep dreaming. Kris has not had to travel since I have been here which makes the transition a little easier, we are able to get the apartment back together, and get any essentials we need before season starts and things get crazy. I don’t have anything specific to post about yet, so I thought I would just post a few photos of my first week back in Japan.
Mt. Fuji is gorgeous, and you never know if you will see it from the bullet train or not. It could be a clear blue sky and when you get close to Mt Fuji it will be super cloudy. After traveling 15 hours to Tokyo I then ride a 4 hour train to Hiroshima, and this time my train view was stunning! I wish I could walk around with a filter on while being sleep deprived.
Kris pitched last Friday and I finally felt half alive ( insert I did my hair and make up selfie) and I realized Carp coffee needs to be three times larger and my husband looks so cute in baseball pants! 🙂 haha.
We ended game night with tradition…dinner at Grafity. The family that owns it are so sweet and gave us a framed picture of Kris’ Sawamura Award newspaper article and even hung the article I did in their restaurant. They collect stickers and put them all over the place, so they have a HiBoy sticker (my family’s restaurant) on their front door. They said that in December foreigners came in and said ” Oh my gosh, how do you know HiBoy? We are from Kansas City!” They were so excited to see something familiar from home they took a picture of the sticker. It’s crazy what a small world we live in!
Kris and I love to play darts and go bowling, but as the season goes on Kris’ arm is too tired to play, so we decided to go bowling yesterday and had so much fun. I will always love how my shoes come out of a vending machine.
After posting all these pictures I’ve come to the conclusion that I should probably blog more frequently.
Thanks for stopping by!
