Hi there.

It has been a while.

And as you can see, for the first time in many months, I have started blogging again.

I hope you don’t mind.

You see, on the 2nd of April (12 days away), I will be moving to Japan with the intention of living there for at least three years.


Big move.

I’m not going alone, and I’m not going with a lack of plans. I’m going there with my wife Haidee, and I’m going there to study at Nagoya University towards a Masters degree in international development (more info on how all that happened later).

Anway, I just wanted to say that I’m pretty sure that the 14degrees blog is going to continue less as an around-the-world-human-powered-adventure blog, and more of an experiencing-Japan-life-in-Japan-study-in-Japan experience blog. The idea will be to share:

  • Interesting news reports on what is happening in Japan and Japanese society (videos, article summaries etc).
  • Little knooks and crannies of Nagoya City, including food, sightseeing, and general life info.
  • Nagoya University happenings.
  • General travel in Japan, with me as your guide-person.

As always, there will be plenty of photos and videos to gorge on.

I imagine that there will be a fairly big shake up in the way the blog looks and is organised, as the part about the 14degrees journey becomes more of an archived part of the site (of course it will still be totally accessable in its entirety).

In the mean time, I will be writing up blogs from the honeymoon, before I hit Japan in less than two weeks time. I hope you enjoy.
