T-1

Holy crap, where did the time go? I'm leaving tomorrow morning to start my first ever 34-day solo bike tour in the state of Brandenburg. You know the feeling where you've made a list, made a plan, packed everything, checked everything a gazillion times and you still feel like you're missing something? This week has been kind of an emotional rollercoaster, and as anxious as I am about this whole trip, I'm looking forward to getting started already.

Since I won't have a computer with me, I will be posting only on my Instagram account in the next month (http://www.instagram.com/bringmebonsai/). Don't worry, you'll be able to see the account from a browser without having an account! It probably won't be daily comics, but maybe daily doodles and photos.



For those of you who are interested: Brandenburg is one of the 16 federal states of Germany which was formerly part of the GDR. It surrounds Berlin like a misshapen donut and has a population of approx. 2.5 million. (Berlin has a population of 3.7 million even though it's 1/30 the size of Brandenburg.)


So...here goes nothing. Wish me luck!

Last Few Days

Sorry for the silence! This is what I've been up to in the last few days. 3 more days till I take off!

Anxiety

Feeling very uninspired this weekend, hence the last of comics in the last two days! Maybe it's the anxiety setting in.

Ripe

I told him to think of it like a kiss with teeth, but he wasn't very convinced.

Boring

This is a stupid thing to think, but I can't help it. Nothing really bad, though. Just something mildly bad to spice things up.

Brandenburg

As I've mentioned in a few previous comics, I am going on a month-long solo bike trip in the state of Brandenburg in a few weeks. I made this comic today as part of a second round of inquiries I am sending out to look for people to meet and interview during my my trip. For a lack of a normal comic I am posting this here, but if you happen to know someone in Brandenburg...please send them my way: horibe (at) gmail.com! It would be great to have a  couple more interesting contacts.

Not-so-good Friday

I was horribly hungover on Good Friday. G was really sweet but all I wanted to do was PUKE.

Fee

Going back and forth between US comics and everyday comics. Sorry if you got confused!

Eavesdropping

I started getting advertisements from my them soon after I bought them. Seriously, jokes aside, I am very very creeped out.

Association

Ah! I forgot to mention that we were travelling with our friend C, who is also German. I spoke an even funkier form of Denglish during our trip than usual...

Emergency

To be fair, the ambulance can do a lot more than I could in a medical emergency.

Randsburg

For those of you who have never heard of Randsburg, CA (ie. probably most of you), Randsburg is an old gold mining town which is now known to be a living ghost town.

Day 1

This was all after we'd been up and travelling for about 20 hours, so we were exhausted!

American Enough

G's best efforts in trying to keep up with the super duper friendly Southwest Americans. A+ for a Northern German.

Pageant Mom

We're back from the US! I am groggy from jet lag and my hands are shaking for some reason, but we had an awesome time! I will be posting some of my favorite moments from our trip over the next few days.

Consulting

Love is willing to sniff the crotch of your partner's pants every morning. (Oh god, that sounds really wrong.)

Self-Sacrifice

I made sushi for 15 people last week and for reason, even though I hadn't made any for myself, I was full by the time I was done. Magic!

Microwave

Sometimes, I pretend I have my own exercise show where I randomly start planking whilst going about my day.

Insulation

I didn't think it was going to make much of a difference, but boy, was I wrong.

Tomorrow

Sometimes, I draw nice comics about how nice it is to live with someone you love. (Cue the "awww".)

Nightmare

Last night I woke up from a terrible dream where I came face to face with Trump and I stabbed him a bunch of times with a knife but he wouldn't die. Why can't I just dream about hanging out with kittens or something?

Berlinale

So...this was my morning. The adrenaline's worn off and now I'm just tired.

Broken

It's hard to maintain a language when you live abroad, even if it's your mother tongue. My deteriorating Japanese is definitely one of the biggest complexes I have.
