Throughout that time I’ve always wondered if I made the right decision, whether…

Daegu

As my time in China is starting to draw to a close, its the right time to start thinking contemplating my next step. Naturally the geography would dictate I should keep travelling as far East as I can, which would lead me to the highly anticipated nation of Japan. Lest we forget that between these…
