Hello & welcome to my travel journal. It's been going about 10 years now. LiveJournal works by posting the newest entries at the top and continuing in reverse chronological order, but if you want to look at a specific month or year you can look at the calendar feature. You can also click on the tags that are listed down the left hand side of the page if you want to look for posts on a specific topic.

If you're new here, I'm a 28 year old Brit called Lizzie. After graduating in 2008 I lived in rural Japan teaching English as part of the JET Program. I had the best two years of my life out there but it was eventually time to return to my roots.

I lost and found love in Manchester for 3 years before moving to Nottingham in October 2013.

I'm still working on making my life long dream come true; going to 101 countries. How am I doing?

Only 31 down, 70 to go!

Here's a lovely list of upcoming trips:

December 2015 - a month in Sri Lanka, with a brief stopover in Qatar

Here's a lovely list of countries I've been to so far:
The UK, Spain, France, Belgium, Germany, The Netherlands, Latvia, Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Ireland, Australia, Denmark, Lithuania, Norway, Iceland, Japan, South Korea, Switzerland, Hungary, Malta, Portugal, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, The Czech Republic, Poland, Slovakia, Austria, Slovenia, Qatar and Sri Lanka.


You can find me on Twitter here.

Lots of my travel photos are on Pinterest too.


Here's a page of links to some of my posts about the JET Programme and Japan.

I'm always happy to talk to people about JET and what life is like in Japan so feel free to get in touch. I mentor people applying to JET so if you need any help with application process or with writing your personal statement let me know. I proofread several every year. I don't charge for this!

I was in Japan from 2008 - 2010 so those will be the main years to browse through for Japan related posts.


I'm also a survivor of bereavement by suicide and I recently collected links to all the posts I've made about it in case it's useful to someone who's going through the same thing.


If you have any comments, questions or requests then please get in touch.

Where should I go to next?!

Hi! My name is also Lizzie, and I also taught english in Japan, in a sparsely populated prefecture as well, Hokkaido. So I know a bit about country life, haha. I'm feeling nostalgic/homesick for Japan and the moment and saw your post at the JET community and thought we might like to share experiences? I don't know. Nice to rad your posts anyways! :)
