What does one do when a dream comes true? I suppose make another dream a reality.
For years I had dreamed and prayed for a teaching job somewhere over the ocean and this summer my dream came true. After a 13 hour flight I arrived in Japan on a late Wednesday evening and headed to my new home south of Tokyo. Dream begun. A new home, a new job and in a fabulous, new to me, country.
Now on to fulfilling another dream. This one may seem silly to most but it is something I have wanted for years. So as they say in the Army with boots on ground less then 24 hours I headed out to buy myself a bike. Not just any bike but a Japanese cruiser. Complete with basket, bell, and light. It also came with a lock.
This blog is going to be about my life in Japan and my travels in the Far East. But when two dreams come true in 24 hours it needs to be shared. I ride my bike all over my new home, which is what I have wanted to do for years. All the while trying not to smile too much or I’ll become known as the crazy new teacher on the green bike.
