こんにちは！(English after Japanese)
Now 2017 has almost finished.
Time flies always. But especially in November to December, it was very fast for me.
I don't think it was because of fulfillment. I just did my routine work then I found that 2017 was almost finished. I've enjoyed my life though.
I don't have much motivation and I'm little bit lazy recently. But I hope it is because of such a cold weather. So when spring will come, maybe I'll be better...
31 January. The ship departed from Yokohama, Japan. I cried because I was so happy.
7 February. We arrived at Vanuatu. The capital city was small. People were very kind.
10 February. Auckland in New Zealand. It was big city, totally different from Port Vila in Vanuatu. I felt Auckland was somehow similar to my hometown, Sapporo.
19 February. Suva in Fiji. I met such a cute and shy children in small village.
23 February. Solomon Islands. It was also small country and people were really friendly.
28 February. Somewhere in the Pacific Ocean. I didn't tire of sea although I'd seen it everyday. Beautiful blue sea, the sky filled with stars, beautiful animals we saw sometimes like seagulls, dolphin and whale...It was really wonderful and amazing days.
My SWY family. We traveled about a month on the ship. They were really awesome.
3 March. We backed Tokyo. I said good bye to my friends and backed to my hometown, Sapporo.
19 May. Finally spring had arrived in Sapporo, the northern part of Japan.
13 June. Miyajima in Hiroshima. It was so beautiful.
14 June. The shrine in Fukuoka. When I climbed up all stairs then I looked back, it was really beautiful scenery.
15 June. The coast in the Kumamoto. The tideland and sunset was wonderful.
16 June. I went Sakura-jima in Kagoshima. I was surprised that local people used ferries as a commute.
24 June. It was first time for me to visit Africa. Finally I arrived in Rwanda. This night view was really awesome.
16 July. Nairobi, the capital city of Kenya. I didn't know that Nairobi was such a big city.
26 July. I enjoyed chatting, dancing and singing with these girls. These girls were kind, cute and positive.
29 July. Lake Victoria, the largest lake in Africa. I was really excited when I imagined there were another countries beyond the lake.
9 September. Mombasa, the second largest city in Kenya. There were many Muslim people. So the atmosphere was different from another city like Nairobi.
20 September. Great Lift Valley. I went through a few times by bus. It was magnificent.
25 September. Bangkok in Thailand.
26 November. Jiufen in Taiwan.
Last week. It was just my neighbor. I can't wait Spring.
After I looked back this year, I found that I visited many places and I met a lot of wonderful friends. Now I know it was really happy one yeah for me.
I learned a lot, various experiences made me mature at least, anyway I had so much fun time.
Although sometimes I had a difficult time, but it seems that memories are more beautiful than real...
So next year, like this year, I will visit many places I want to visit, I will do many things I want to do, I will enjoy every as possible as I can.
Also I hope I will make my friends around me happy.
Thank you very much for reading!
Warm wishes for the glorious coming year!
