Footsteps of a Dreamer

Hey all! My name is Kiyoko, and welcome to my travel blog!

“Learn to travel.”

Trip planning can be a lot of work. More often than not, it is also very stressful. Thankfully, it’s something I enjoy doing (so weird, right?). Through this blog, I aim to inspire other people to travel more and help them realize that anybody can travel with the right amount of planning.

“Travel to Learn.”

After studying abroad, I found that it was simply impossible for me to return to the life I had been living before I left on my journey. Travel can be a truly eye opening experience and can greatly affect your views of other people and places. I also intend to write about some of the personal revelations I have along the way. If you are ever feeling as lost in life as I have, hopefully this will help guide you.

 

The First Footsteps

Growing up I went on family trips, but I got my first true taste of travel when I went to Rikkyo University in Tokyo, Japan through a study abroad program at my university for 4 months. Unfortunately, when preparing for my journey, I had a lot of questions about the application, dorm registration, and overall rules that my university was unable to answer. When I started searching for answers online, I found a lot of other people who had questions similar to mine, so I decided to start blogging in order to not only document my wonderful experiences during my exchange program, but also to hopefully help other students who are preparing to study abroad.

 

And Every Footstep After

Since returning from Japan, I have visiting several places in the United States, including California, Massachusetts, Hawaii, and more. Currently, I’m planning trips to Nashville, Tennessee, and the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.

You can follow all my footsteps by signing up for my newsletter, or by following me on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Pinterest, and Flickr.
