I was super nervous this morning as I was getting ready to start my new job. Meeting new people, the language barrier, not really knowing what is expected of me, all contributed to my nerves.

Our trip was really quite smooth - we caught one subway, changed to the bullet train, and then 15 mins later we were in Kyoto!
