Let me introduce myself first.

⑥ go to the place

Anyone can do it if they have the time.

I will write down the detailed methods and points to note one by one.

Make a list of places you want to go

Now make a list of places you would like to meet or places you would like to visit.

In my case, I wrote down all the minorities in the world in order to solve the question, "Are there really minorities?"
If you've never been there, it doesn't matter if it's a prefecture or a country name.
Write down any place in your head that bothers you even a little.
(Example) If you like mountain climbing → Mountain name, places with famous climbers, places with hill tribes, etc.

Divide A4 paper into 16 equal parts

A flyer with a blank back is fine. Make a list of papers.

The ideal size is 52.5cm x 74.25cm, which can be obtained by folding A4 paper four times.
You don't have to measure the dimensions exactly. Be quick before it becomes a hassle.

Write the name of the place on the cut piece of paper

Write down the names of the places you just listed on a piece of paper.
Once you have written it, fold it twice so that you cannot see what you have written.

It also emphasizes speed. I'm the only one who reads it, so it's okay if the handwriting is dirty.
Write quickly, like scribbling.

pull lightly

Put a piece of paper with the place written on it in a supermarket bag and draw one without any hesitation.

If you have time before pulling, you will think about various things and end up going nowhere.
After drawing one, throw away the rest.
This is to eliminate the hesitation that "I really want to go here". If you change it once, you will regret it later, and you will not be able to act by changing it again.

That one ticket will change your life.

buy airline tickets

Let's buy a plane ticket to go to the place you drew.
*If you are traveling overseas, check the minimum information before buying, such as whether vaccination is required and the local political situation.

Ideally, you should not buy a return ticket yet, but if you have limited time, buy a round-trip ticket.
→Because I don't know what's going on there. Ideally, if you enjoy it, you can stay as long as you like, and if you don't enjoy it, you can leave immediately.

A word of caution at this point: buy now.
If you talk to someone or report to someone, the conversation will be lively and you will feel like you have done it.
On the contrary, there is also the danger of being stopped.
Even if you consult or report, let's do it after buying.

If you are really persuaded, you can cancel later.

Immediately after drawing the lottery, I bought the cheapest flight ticket on a flight comparison site.


What to do after buying an airline ticket before departure

go to the dentist

Nothing gets in the way of having a good time like cavities.
Even if you don't have any abnormalities, think of it as an opportunity to go for a regular checkup.

do nothing

It's better to do nothing else.
If you spend too much time preparing, you may end up buying unnecessary things that will cost you more money than you expected, or you may end up thinking, "I'm done!"
Immerse yourself in your current job or watch it on Netflix and let the time pass.

Now back to the main topic.

go to the place

Let's go to that place at last.

The ideal is to go light with one backpack.
All you need is clothes, toiletries and a charger.

I dressed up and brought my heavy laptop.
I never opened it.

When you arrive at the site, take an inn and go out to the town to collect information.
Anyway, I say to everyone I meet, "I came here because I want to do __ (I want to meet you)."

* The people you meet here may lead to important relationships later.
Always exchange contact information.
After all, it's the person you talked to with those bright eyes.
It will definitely leave an impression on the other side.
The person is likely to become a friend, lover, or business partner.

And try to live according to the local customs as much as possible.
If you try it once and it doesn't work, stop.
But for once, enjoy the local food and customs with the locals.

Just let yourself go with the flow.

Please enjoy it to your heart's content.

You can become a "new you" because no one knows you.

By the way, when I go to Ethiopia, I put my emotions out 200%.

Even if you don't understand the language, if you try to get along with them, they will understand.

On the contrary, if there is something you don't like, you will make a face that you really don't like.

Then I met the ethnic minority I wanted to meet, was given the name "Gartembi", and on my second trip I went to coffee producers and started trading.

Life changes depending on whether you act or not.

0 is inactive.
It becomes 1 for the first time by taking action.
When it comes to 1, there are many possibilities.
0 is also 0 possible.

One-time life.

I don't know when I will die.
In fact, there are many people in the world who are side by side with death.

Be grateful that you were born in Japan, a blessed country, and enjoy life to the fullest.

So, have you got your ticket yet?


*Please note that this blog will not be held responsible for any dangers that may occur while traveling.
In my case, I was ripped off and had my bag cut off from the first day, but the fun outweighed it all.
