Simply Inspired: Looking Back/Forward to Kyoto, Japan

At the end of January 2019, I achieved the most beautiful birthday gift and was on the plane to Kansai Airport Osaka, from which I would begin my two week individual dive into the Japanese culture, and the unique bridge between tradition and modern: Kyoto. As look back on the experience, I now realize the emotional impact it had on me, and the surprising realizations it led to regarding me as an individual. I miss all my friends from there so much, and all the smiles we shared. I somehow know that our paths will cross with some of them. Thank you everyone 🙂

Now, I would like to dedicate this week to a flashback into all the things I experienced, and how this short period of inspiration is shaping my outlook into the world right now. To future me, please travel Kyoto, please go to Japan, get lost there, use the language, share your own…


From the bubble


MemoCanDoes on Youtube!

I managed to lay my hands on a camera this summer while I was in the Harvard Summer School program and realized that enjoy video making quite a bit more than I thought. (Sony a6500 with an f-1.8 Prime Lens is you are interested.)

This gave me the incentive to launch a brand new youtube channel where I could share my content with people in higher definition as an expansion to the quicker and easier Instagram that I normally use.

I hope to share the links of my videos as they go up here as well!

Here are a few just to begin with, I hope to also do individual posts on some of the videos to elaborate more on the content.

Turkish Guy Visits Japan

This is a quick amateur vlog of my trip to Japan in August 2017. I was mesmerized. From food to Mt. Fuji to the Hatsune Miku concert, it was a super valuable experience for me. I wish to definitely visit again.
