Project 16 of 365: Throwback Thursday Photos

"The trick to forgetting the big picture is to look at everything close-up."
"It's a plane, it's Superman, no, it's an eagle kite!" 
"Each flower is a soul blossoming out to nature."
"Birds with the same feather, flock together." 
"Can I have a wine for two?"

Missing those not so recently trips I had that's why we have a #tbt post right here in the blog. Looking forward for more trips and shots this year 2015. Can you guess where are these photos located?

Walking Around JR Nagoya Station

It was a day from work and without hesitation and sleep, I decided to have some walk around JR Nagoya station before having some sleep. It was a sunny but chilly day, so after wrapping myself against the cold winds, prepared my trust-y hand-y dand-y camera, off I went.

Nagoya station is the heart of all stations in the Tokai region. It has the Shinkansen line to bring you to almost far places from Nagoya (i.e., Tokyo, Osaka) in a way faster than the other lines but of course for a cost, JR line, Meitetsu line which brings you to Chubu International Airport, Aonami line to bring you to the Immigration in Chubu, Kintetsu line and subways that go to different areas around Nagoya. (Correct me if I am wrong or there are other lines not mentioned above.)
 Above are the JR line and Shinkansen line ticket booths. Despite the busy area where people come and go, arrive and depart, I was able to capture these photos.

Travel Must-Haves and To-do`s ala Jenponix

Long time, no post, noh?!? I`ve been missing in action these past few days and I am sorry for that. So here I am posting in a Valentine`s day with not so Valentine appropriate post. So for a Valentine post expectant readers, sorry if I can`t give you something Valentines theme  and I hope you are going to like my post for now.

For today`s post, I am going to share to you my must have items during short-haul flights or when I am traveling. I just been into short-haul flights, I guess. My maximum flight hour experienced was 4 hours so I still don`t experience a long-haul flight. When I travel or out into an adventure, I make sure to pack light. During my first time traveling, I was overwhelmed and was into like "bring the house" kind of traveler and that`s when I realized I don`t need everything during traveling. I realized I don`t need all those clothes, shoes, accessories, toiletries, etc. And that`s how I learned to travel and pack light. I learned what to do, dont`s in preparing for every travel. Because of this, I was able to travel 4 countries for 2 weeks with just a 35 liter carry-on backpack, no check-in bags and the like. Also, traveling wise can save you bucks. Soon, I am going to share to you how did I do it so stay tune for it. For now, I am going to share to you what I usually brings when I travel with a check-in luggage and with a carry-on.
In preparing for your incoming travel, of course there are things you should prepare. Before preparing those things you should bring with you, first you must, of course...
