Life Lately


Life lately has been packed full of moving prep, the NIOSC Semper Fi Fund Charity Event, and trying to hang out with friends that are leaving soon. I haven't really had a chance to think about the amount of us that are leaving and how much I'm going to miss them. That changed after having a fantastic time with a group of fun women over the past few days!

"Friendtrip" - Miyajima


Miyajima, or Itsukushima if you want to get technical, was one of the highlights of the trip for me. I had been looking forward to seeing the "floating" torii for ages and was super excited to get there! Some may say that I was obsessing over low and high tide... *cough*cough* Kacey. Maybe I was, but who can blame me when this view was at stake!

PCS Season: Scheduling Your Shipments from Okinawa to the USA

Below, you'll find my personal experience and findings throughout the PCS-ing process. If you've had a different experience please feel free to leave a comment below.

Now that we have Maylee squared away and ready to fly, it's time to schedule our shipments. We have the luxury of time, which many people don't get and for that I am grateful. Actually, it's a blessing and a curse... let me explain.

Bloggers of Okinawa Dinner at Jiji Cafe


Recently, I joined some of the lovely Bloggers of Okinawa! We met for dinner at a cute, little cafe near the new Aeon mall by Camp Foster. It was great to get together, brainstorm, and get to know each other in real life (instead of the virtual world).

"Friendtrip" - Etajima & Hiroshima Peace Memorial Park


After the failed attempt to Space-A to Iwakuni, we finally made it to Hiroshima. We had one last ferry to take before we made it to our accommodations on Etajima, but we were here! Thankfully, we didn't have trouble making it onto the boat or getting to our house, which that has everything to do with Rikki and his friend, Yohei, who answered all of my frantic phone calls and picked us up at the ferry port... with beer!
