Operation Visit Japan in the home stretch

Jamaipanese.com is over five years old but my love for Japan goes back longer than that. Almost 18 months ago I started Operation Visit Japan that focused on slewing the financial behemoth a trip Jamaica to Japan is. Financially all is set now now and although a very unfortunate disaster in Japan delayed my trip a little it is now matter of getting though a bunch of applications and paper work. At the time of this blog post the 4 major steps left before I can finally rest easy and start packing my bags for Japan.

  • Vacation Leave Application and approval
  • Japanese Visa Application
  • United States Visa Application
  • Purchase Train Pass
  • Purchase Plane Tickets

I’m not too nervous about any one step in particular I’m just nervoxcited (nervous + excited) about the final process and now being in the home stretch. I’ve been “practicing” up for those Youtube videos I promised and althought my desktop PC decided to stop working I am working on a way to start recording them – even if I have to stay back at work and do it!

Thank you all for your continued support. Subscribe to the Jamaipanese.com Youtube channel and follow me on Twitter. Lots of updates coming in the coming weeks such as when I leave, how long I will be staying, and some other plans. Stay tuned…

  2. You’ve proved once and for all that with a focus goal, determination and proper planning, one can indeed make one’s dreams come true!

  3. Makes you feel very happy to be able to just buy a ticket and jump on a plane (as you can in Australia)… it’s easy to forget how much is involved for international travel for a lot of places around the world.

    Keep up the motivation and start ticking those remaining steps off.

    “nervoxcited” is just how I would describe how I was while waiting for my paper work to go through as well. Don’t worry though, you’ll be there in no time! [pole] [japan]
