I’m just going to completely ignore the fact that I haven’t posted in an entire year… BUT, I will say that a goal of mine this year is to post more often.
ANYWAY, my first post of 2019 will be about a trip I took in 2018– makes sense yep okay. Last March/April, we took a trip to what quickly became my favorite place I’ve ever been: Japan. We spent 2.5 weeks touring the country, splitting our time between the big, bustling cities of Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka. But we also took a number of day trips to the quieter ones– Hakone, Nara, Hiroshima, and Miyajima. Best of all, we were very lucky to catch the cherry blossoms blooming as we moved from city to city.Exploring Japan firsthand is such a unique experience. From the moment we stepped onto Japanese soil, there was an overwhelming sense that we were entering an entirely new world. The people are remarkably nice and polite, the architecture is so unlike anything I’ve seen in person before, the culture is such an interesting mix of ancient tradition and modern technology, and the food is so incredible that it makes me want to move there for the cuisine alone. We’re already itching to go back next year.
Relive my time there with me (see vid below)!!
