Hi there! I hope you have been enjoying the pictures I have shown you of our Okinwan Adventures. There are so many exciting things to do and beautiful places to see. This week, I thought it would be fun to share some of the “challenges” I have had in Okinawa. Maybe you can get a good laugh or two.

We have really enjoyed trying new foods here. My motto is “I’ll try anything once!”. Well, almost. Whole, cold-chewy little fishes are a no-no. My son and husband ate an entire bowl saying it tasted like beef-jerky. I actually put one half way in my mouth but when I bit down, the fish deflated a little and I couldn’t bite it off. ACK!!!
Me and Okinawan driving do not mix well together. I’ve lost my license, broken a mirror, and gotten a ticket in the short two months we’ve been here. What?!? Not to mention driving on the wrong side of the road and the wrong way down a one way. I have, however, mastered 30 point turnarounds.
No one can recall a Tsunami hitting Okinawa in recent years. These signs (right by my house!), do not make me feel better. Typhoons I can handle (I think!), a big wave? Not so much.
Things I’ve enjoyed recently:
Free Spring printables, especially this one.
Spring flowers and floral arranging tips for the home.
Caribbean design inspiration from the Dominican Republic.
