Day 0 from Galway to London.

I left Galway for London by bus and ferry!
My friend came to London from Japan.
We met there and stayed together for a week!
At first, I got a bus from Galway to Dublin.
Then, I got a ferry from Dublin to Wales.
View from the ferry.

It looks glamorous.

I arrived in London. 


I'm allowed to love.

I did "Titanic" only me. Someday I will do this with her.

I feel so happy, I can't even do anything without thinking about her.
I know it doesn't last forever, so I will write my feeling now.

I'm allowed to love.
I think people want to love someone.
People really want to love someone.
People want to be gentle for someone.
People want to forgive someone.
People want to share.

I know, when some people are rejected by love, they begin to give up loving someone.
I understand this situation.

She let me love her.
I can say " I love you".
I can be gentle with her.
I can forgive her.
I can share with her.
I can do anything for her.

It doesn't matter, I can do these things or not.

Now I am able to do these things for her.
It makes me happy for now.

Comparing "Room share" with "Single room" in Galway.

Last apartment.
I lived at the "Kinlay Workers House" It is in Galway city center Eyle Square.

There are 13 people, who come from foreign countries, they are from Spain, U.S.A, Canada, Germany, Bulgaria, France, Italy and Croatia.
They live here to study at Uni, to improve English or to travel and so on.
About every 2 weeks, some people leave the apartment for another place and other people come to join us.
We worked in the Kinlay hostel for 16 hours per week for our accommodation.

Occasionally we held parties when we celebrated someone's birthday, or leaves from the House. After the party we went dancing.
When it was good weather, we took a walk, played soccer together in the daytime. At night, we watched movies while eating popcorn.

Present apartment.
Now I live upstairs of the restaurant where I work.
The apartment is near the city center by the docks. It's a really convenient place to live.
I can see the Sea every day.
I go to the shoreline every morning to exercise.

I live in a single room, Now I have some private time.
There is another person sharing kitchen, bathroom and shower with me.
The Rent isn't cheap. It costs €125, this includes electricity, wifi and water charges, per week . However, there is no other place that will allow me to stay only 2 months.

I miss my friends who worked together, played together and lived together.

Even though I moved to new flat, they still invite me to a picnic or playing football. This is also a lot of fun. 
The happiest thing since I moved to my new flat is it's quiet, even at night! My last flat is in front of the club called "Karma". They play loud music until 3 am every weekend, I couldn't take it!!
Recently, I sleep very well.

Ken's monthly report April 2016

How am I getting along?

From this April, I work at a Japanese restaurant. I have a "Working Holiday Visa" Even though I used the Visa only for a holiday, now I use it for working!

At the same time I got this job, I moved upstairs of the restaurant. Although now I have some private time, I miss my share mates.

In Galway, even in April, it was snowing and very cold. I couldn't believe that!
I have been sick from March, I was coughing badly all night long for a few weeks. However, it's getting better recently. 

Some targets in April.

I am working very hard in the Japanese restaurant. The rest of the time, I try to write articles in Japanese and English as much as possible.
I write my article about "Allowing over 18 years old to vote in Japan" before leaving for London. The laws have been changed to include people who are over the age of 18 to vote instead of 20.

I am translating information, from English to Japanese, about the UK referendum.

Schedule from April

From the 29th of April to 5th of May, I stay in London with my friend from Japan.
The 13th of Jun, I go to London again to research about the "UK referendum"
From July, I will travel around Ireland or some other European countries by Hitch-hiking or a bicycle.
In October, I will go back to Japan for a while.

[Pic] Sake Tasting Party at Galway.

Yesterday the Wa-cafe, a Japanese restaurant in Galway, held a "Sake Tasting Party"
Sake means traditional Japanese rice wine.   

Joe lived in Japan.
He taught how to make and enjoy sake.

"Kampai" is "Cheers" in Japanese.


Sushi rolls

For €15 the Wa-cafe served 9 or more different types of Sake shots and Japanese cuisine per person.

Have you found your favourite sake?
Even though I had forgotten about Sake, now I miss Sake.

If you like to order for yourself, You can do it from the site.
