What did I buy in Fukuoka and Nagasaki?

I've become a frugal traveler while in Japan, since my trips are now practically occurring every weekend.

Long gone are the days when I used to bring an empty suitcase to Japan and haul back my own body weight's worth of souvenirs and clothing.  Now I have neither the space or the money for such indulgences, so I decided that I will commemorate my time in Japan by purchasing a pair of chopsticks from every town I visit. This is cheap, space-efficient, and practical (as I currently one have three pairs of chopsticks at my house). 

In Fukuoka, I bought a little extra, mainly the Starbucks mug, which I had wanted for some time, and a unicorn luggage badge from Frapbois, which was too good to pass up.

In Nagasaki I picked up two pairs of chopsticks near Glover Garden, as well as some edible omiage for my coworkers. The castella I saved for myself.

The Gambia: Photo Diaries from the City

Although I flew into Banjul, I spent very little time there. Most of my time 'in the city' was actually spent in Banjul's sprawl...
