Hi, I’m Gisella. I'm a 'solo' traveller and a chef for hobby.

Mission: "solo" Japan. Yatta!!!

October 30th, 2012. On flight from Dar Es Salaam to Tokyo.

This way, my first journey to Japan started! Going to Japan has been one of my dreams, since long time. After over two years living in Africa, finally I had the chance to plan an holiday in the Land of the Raising Sun.

Everything has been organized into the minimum detail. And the journey has been just great! Some weeks after coming back to Tanzania, I put order in thousands pictures and in my traveler's notes.

It's finally time to post about Japan. Enjoy!
