Guest Poster! Amanda from Marshalls Abroad

Hi there! I'm Amanda, from Marshalls Abroad
Can I just start by saying that I love Chels and her attitude in life?! You're beautiful inside & out my dear.

Some of my friends back home joke that my blog is like a travel brochure for Okinawa (it's my secret weapon to get them to visit!), but I sincerely love sharing our life here because Japan is a culturally rich & incredibly beautiful country.. especially the island we live on. :)
Asia ~ especially Japan ~ is a surprising place. I don't want to say too much because I want you to travel out here and experience it yourself if you get the opportunity to do so! We are daily blown away.
 {looots of time is spent on the beach}
{our home on the east china sea. "i can't believe we live here" comes out of our mouths atleast once a day}
 {there are bikes everywhere! we love how active the culture is}
{ride of choice: our scooter Vino}
{should you get sick of the beach (not sure how that's possible??) there's a whole world to explore underwater}
if you ever get the chance to live abroad, please please seize it. 
this is my second time, and though the first was in italia {ohh the best foreign country ever in my book} there is absolutely nothing like living on a tropical island with the love of your life. I think I'd love anywhere as long as it's with him, but Okinawa would be VERY hard to beat!

Hope you enjoyed a little of this gorgeous island & that if you ever get out to Asia you stop by here.. you won't regret it!
Thanks for having me Chels!

obviously, i, too, am a huge advocate for living abroad... although her 'abroad' is a liiiitle more INCREDIBLE than mine.

I love her blog! It's a little bit like porn for the travel-obsessed. Such a great choice for a guest post!

The only parts of China I have been to are Shanghai and Guangzhou. This is very different! Looks like a beautiful place.
