Hello everyone! As I mentioned in a previous post, I’m traveling to Japan in March! My flight is barely 6 weeks away and I’m DYING to get there but I’d also like to have all my ducks in a row before I leave.

So other international travelers, folks who have been abroad and folks planning on going abroad, what do you make sure you take care of before you leave your home country? I mean things like, notifying your bank that you’re going to be in a different country so please don’t freeze my cards, that kind of thing :)

I’m getting an international driver permit to drive Mario Karts around Tokyo with my friends.

Yes this is a thing. It looks glorious.
