I heart Okinawa

Top ten things I’ll miss about this gorgeous subtropical island:
1. Community
That’s the tower where we live, not the prettiest thing in the world, but built to withstand typhoons and “where everybody knows your name”!
2. Sushi
Although you can find this easily stateside, the quality and flavor can’t even compare.

3. Beaches
4. Parks
5. Goya
A vegetable packed with vitamin C also known as bitter melon for its taste. This is almost impossible to eat alone, but stir-fried with egg, ham, and tofu (goya champuru) and your good to go. I actually crave it at this point!

6. Vending machines
Dear Vending machine, Please come home with me, how will I ever quench my thirst without you?
I know your thinking what’s the big whoop?! Well, these bad boys deliver both freezing cold drinks and hot coffee on literally every street corner, catering to all my needs.

8. Safety
I’ve yet to lock my car or home here, its like mayberry.

9. Okinawans
They are hands down the most generous, selfless, and loving people.

10. Japanese Curry (my husband’s)
This one’s for him, although I do enjoy it, just not at the same frequency (once a week)!
