Journey Records in Japan

I find out a need to make notes of our life. To keep every remembrance and experience, from what we can recall again it in the future and also to learn how we have lived our life.

This notes is dedicated for every place & event that leave a depth memory for me from 24 September 2010 (start the journey) – December 2010 (end of year, first milestone)

Thanks to my little pocket camera Panasonic DMC FS-62 which had been accompanying me to store all of this memories.

    1. Hallo Kak Samsu, salam kenal! Saya Bella dari T. Geologi ITB 2008. Saya mendapatkan beasiswa untuk mengikuti OUSSEP dan rencananya saya akan berangkat September akhir. Ini pertama kalinya saya ke luar negeri, saya nervous sekali, hehe. Setelah menemukan ulasan yang bagus di blog ini, motivasi saya pergi ke Jepang jadi menguat lagi. Bolehkah saya bertanya-tanya informasi tentang Osaka University? ^^
      Ada akun fesbuk ga kak?
