I have internet at home!!!! (update)

At last! I feel like this is an important announcement. I have waited 5 whole weeks for this to happen. It takes 2 appointments and 2 guys to fix this up. FINALLY!!!! I thought South Africa was bad, but France is right up there too. It felt as if I was supposed to have applied for internet around the same time as my immigration documents *LOL* Thank you all for your patience xox

Liebster Award #2

Thank you & a loud shout out to Travel Osio for the nomination. Very kind of you. Thank you.   I feel tremendously lucky to be nominated a 2nd time within my 1st year of blogging. How warm and fuzzy does this community get? 😀 Alrighty, fellow blogging peers, I am sure that you know the drill and I will dive right into it.

1st Birthday! Blogversary :D

YEY!!! 1 year in blogging!!! Local Girl Foreign Land is now 1 years old. Thank you all for being here!!!     My first post was actually a food post Cooking at Ecole Institut Paul Bocuse *lol* which was pretty ridiculous on my part since I started this blog with travel in my mind. I guess it happens to all newbies, right?   Quick glance at my goals… ops… I did not reach that magic 1000 subscribers. *lol* I just keep on writing writing writing… Will reach that someday 😀 Stat report: 10,268 hits & 4009 visitors *3rd June 18h00 UK time.   Looks like Japan is really my thing. 35 out of 105 posts so far are Japan travel related. I didn’t derail completely from my initial goals.   Thank you for reading and MEGA thanks to those who stay tuned. APP used for creating these images: Miitomo (Nintendo) I love this game 😀   Please be a sweetheart & follow one of my social media xox Bloglovin’ / Google+ / Twitter / Instagram / Facebook / Pinterest

I am so proud of myself. It has been a year since I started this madness. Thank you for reading and being there every step of the way 😀   It is now time for a cheesy quote… ‘Pas à pas, on va loin.’ French proverb —> Step by step, one goes far.   Please be a sweetheart & follow one of my social media xox Bloglovin’ / Google+ / Twitter / Instagram / Facebook / Pinterest

hellotoyama sake kit kat giveawa

I won!!! Sake Kit Kat from Japan :D

The vlog that I won this awesome snack from was… Hello Toyama (by Lawrence).   Lawrence’s vlog is a video journal of his daily life in Toyama (a small town in Japan). His vlog is a beautiful portrait of appreciating small details living in Japan. I have been following his vlog since last year? Toyama region is not easily accessible and this is one of key attraction for me following his vlog. He made Toyama more ‘accessible’. 😀 Lawrence is bilingual in Japanese and English.     Please be a sweetheart & follow one of my social media xox Bloglovin’ / Google+ / Twitter / Instagram / Facebook / Pinterest
