Hello everyone!  My name is Charlie, I'm a 21 year old foreign exchange student from Boston, Mass studying abroad for a year. I've always wanted to travel, especially to Japan, and so far it's been absolutely fantastic. I love photography and occasionally making videos/vlogs about my experiences here, and would love to get into any form of professional media/ travel guide work. From my experiences as a college student, I love to find the best things to do while on a budget, as I'm sure many of us out there are limited to! Traveling can be expensive, and sometimes all the options seem daunting or simply undoable. I'm inclined to believe otherwise! I'm a pretty outgoing person, love exploring, meeting new people and pushing my boundaries.
