My Travel Story

by: Joséphine Richter Start Date: Aug 4, 2018 - End Date: Aug 3, 2019
Hello! ItI nice to see you here!
So at first, I'll just answer some questions and then I'll tell my (long) story. I hopr you like to read, you'll need that. And also, if i write something a bit different, thentitst because I'm from Germany. But I still hope that this is acceptable for you.
Lets start! 

Japan:
  • This trip to Japan would really boost my later career. I want to go to Japan, to know if I'd like to stay there for some years. Because when I'm done with school in about 6 years, I'd like to go to Japan for some years. First to learn the language and then maybe to work there.
  • I'd really like to learn about the culture when I'm there, I'd like to see some sights, I would want to try the food there. I just want to feel the whole country at once, if that makes sense.
  • I'm passionate about this project because I beliefe in it for about ten years now. I'll tell the whole story later, but I just want to say: the money we can spare, goes into the vacation and TEFL/educational years. So the few Euros we have, have to part into half for those two things again. And that just doesn't work out right. I'm so sorry if this is too much for you. But if you are still interested, read more.
  • I chose that destination because of my past. Again, telling the story later.
  • This trip would mean the world to me. I still didn't lose hope, and I want my dream to come true. For years now I'm dreaming. Now I want this to come true.
Now let's get to my story.
I was four, when I first visited Japan. I was too small so I couldn't really appreciate everything. But I know exactly how I loved all the lights, the sweets, the places. It was mesmerizing. And that probably was the starting point of everything. 
When we got home, I started to watch Anime and Manga after a few years, that motivated me. But I lost my interest in those things, and concentrated completely on Japan, the cities, the culture. Now I'm eager to learn everyday something new about Japan. I try to learn the language, I buy books, I'm checking travel sites on the internet.
I'm just completely overwhelmed by that beautiful country. I know it isn't cheap. I really know. And thats why I'd like to visit it for one to two weeks. In that time, I'd like to learn as much about the culture as I can, so that i know if I want to stay there for a longer time. Because that money for those years can really be used for other things. 
I'll also leave my email address here. If you have a really reasonable question of why it would be helpful to fund this project, you can ask per Mail. But if those mails are unreasonable, I'm going to block them without a second thought. I'm sorry!
Also, for those of you who are interested. If I could really go on vacation in Japan, just send me a mail and I'd send you regularly the best pictures, that I could take. So that you somehow can be there too.

So this was my story, cut short. I hope it helped you or motivated you in any way.
And I would be really happy if you'd fund this project. That would really mean the world to me. I hope you understand. This was my last resource to use, because I don't like to take money from other people.
Thank you so much! Really!
And maybe you just came here for motivation. Or because you also have a project, that needs money. And money reigns the world. Hopefully you can make your dreams come true. Just don't give up! Somehow you'll manage to get it working. I promise.

Also to not confuse you: I'd travel with my mother. And I don't know how much money we'd  need. Because of our saves. And because I'm not sure how this works or who'll fund this.
I'm so unprofessional, I'm sorry!
So if the costs sound unrealistic, I'm not sure how much money I'd need. I'd already be happy with every penny I'd get!
