Peace Boat 81st Global Voyage / by airi katsuta

Hello! Long time no talk. Oh how I hate starting my blog like this but I do apologize for not updating frequently. Soooo, BIG NEWS! I will be working as a Japanese Web Reporter on Peace Boat’s 81st Global Peace Voyage . Peace Boat is a Japan-based international non-governmental and non-profit organization that works to promote peace, human rights, equal and sustainable development and respect for the environment. It is a cruise that goes around the world for 105 days, and I will be photographing and reporting about the activities on board and in 14 different countries. It'll be in Japanese but you can still check it out and look at the photos :)

This organization has a very dear place in my heart because I volunteered with their Disaster Relief to help Ishinomaki. I'm really excited to see the world and another cool thing is that I'll be with my sister Riho and my cousin Hiroto!

Let the adventure begin!!!.....on November 22nd, Bon Voyage!
