☆*゚Paper cranes are made for deepest wishes☆*゚

A late hello to you Cuties!

Today I went on my last "Goodbye journey" before leaving to Tokyo, to see someone special off in Stuttgart, and on my way there I met beautiful Loan on the train! My home area is like a little village - whenever I drive to Stuttgart it's always possible to meet friends there and I'm of course always happy to see them (^_^) Especially today as I didn't think of meeting her before I leave - happy me!

As you can see on the picture, the weather today was just perfect for sitting outside and enjoying the pleasant temperatures.
Unfortunately it seems like the Matcha Frappuchino  isn't sold any more at the german Starbucks stores? Does anybody know is it really sold any more? That would be so sad, I really liked it!

Do you know how to fold paper cranes? I didn't know it and I'm still not able to fold them although Ken really tried to teach me. When it comes to craft things I'm unebelievable clumsy, I can't even cut an even line ( you should be able to do so in Kindergarten...) 
perfect paper crane♥
In Japan it's said, if you fold 1,000 paper cranes one of your deepest wishes comes true. I found it really difficult to fold them, but for him it was so easy, that he even folded smaller, baby cranes. lol So cute ♥ Would you have a special wish for folding 1,000 paper cranes? The most famous story with these paper cranes, is the story of Sadoko Sasaki, a schoolgirl who lived in Hiroshima as the US army dropped the atomic bomb. Probably as a result of the radiation she was diagnosed with leukaemia. She folded more than 1,000 paper cranes for getting healthy again but she died after more than one year in hospital. Since then paper cranes are a symbol for peace and in Hiroshima there's a statue from Sadoko, also as a symbol for peace.

In less than 3 days I'm off to Tokyo and oh my gosh it's so thrilling and annoying at the same time I can tell you!So many things to think of but at least I'm finished with packing my clothes and I think I have collected everything important. The less important things... well I'll look after that tomorrow.

Have you ever been abroad for a year or even longer? How did you feel? 

Good Night now! ☆

☆*゚Living someone else's dream゜゚*☆

Happy Summer Cuties!

Finally the long awaited summer arrived in Germany - and I'm dying. I'm allergic to the sun, to sweating and to the heat. And yes, that's possible, so you can imagine that summer's not necessarily my favourite season...
I've been silent for a long time and I'm sorry for it! Life and its pitfalls you know... Actually there was another entry I had prepared, explaining what happened and what I did, but in the end that's nothing that's interesting to you I think.

I keep concentrating on the future though because...

I never really announced it officially I think, but in a few days I'm leaving for Tokyo, Japan!!!

I'm already SO EXCITED and really looking forward to the time there! 

That's not all though. After staying in Tokyo for some time, I'll drive to the north of Japan, where I'm going to stay one year and attend classes at a japanese university. Yep yep, one year studying abroad in Japan. Sounds awesome, huh? I know! And it's so thrilling although the preparations nearly brought me to the brink of the abyss becaue it got pretty complicated at some point.
Nevertheless everything's fine and the only thing I still have to finish before leaving, is finnishing packing.

 As you see, still a lot to do... lol

I hope you're going to accompany me during this year! (^_^)

Have a great summer!!!
