A student of life.
This is my little corner of the Internet, where I talk about traveling, life-lessons I learned here in Japan and the dichotomy of my musings in an attempt to quell the questions I relentlessly ask myself.

Thank you for stumbling into my blog. My name is Charisma and I happen to be living in the most eccentric but eclectic city of Tokyo since 2017. If you find yourself traveling sordidly in Japan, give me a call and I will show you the wonders not many tourists see.
After 4 times of frolicking around the metropolis, I now call Musashino my home. Some people enjoy the brightlights and neon parties that’s why they come to Tokyo but unfortunately that’s not me.
Is it even possible or is it just me that you can fall in love with a place and your heart irresistably longs for a home in the form of trees and nature.
I’ve been hopping places since I was 18. And if that taught me anything, it’s that home is not a house but a feeling. Somewhere you are reassured with peace and acceptance. Somewhere you can ‘just be’ without any qualms.
So after a series of midlife crisis, soul-searching after soul-searching, years of so many questions and wondering – I found that nothing in this world can satisfy my alienated, out-of-this world thirst for a thing I cannot name. So I leave you with a quote from C.S. Lewis ” “If I find in myself desires which nothing in this world can satisfy, the only logical explanation is that I was made for another world.”
