You might have noticed that the blog was a little quiet at the end of last year and the beginning of this year. That is because we took a vacation to Palau (more on that soon.) To get there, we had to fly through Japan, which is a place I have always wanted to explore. Although we didn’t have very much time, we made the most of it by eating lots of great food and drinking tea, staying in a traditional Japanese hotel (called a ryokan) and soaking up the Japanese culture. This image sums up my limited time in Japan. Can’t wait to go back.
