In this podcast, I catch up with my old friend Mounika, who tells me about her trip of a lifetime to Japan.
I was friends with Mounika and her husband Rohit back when I lived in Sacramento and became good friends with them towards the tail end of my stay there before leaving to live abroad in 2011.
Last year, Mounika invited me to speak via video chat to a club with some of her girl friends from India to California. I talked about my adventures, went over a few stories from the books I’ve written about them, and my life as an expat now.
Well, Mounika took my words of words of motivation to heart and planned her own life-changing journey – to Japan!
What makes this odyssey so incredible is that Mounika visited the land of the rising sun solo, and it was her very first time traveling except for her home nations!
Join me in chatting with Mounika about how she overcame her fears, her impressions of Japan, the serendipitous experiences she had, and the wonderful people she met (not to mention all of the great food!).
Discover what she found on the trip of a lifetime on this very heartfelt and human podcast!
