Iwakuni, Miyajima Island and Hiroshima

Our latest adventures took us to Iwakuni, Miyajima Island and Hiroshima.  This was a scheduled tour through the base and included a very long bus ride there and back.

Internal Bullet Points

The last few weeks haven't given me much to blog about with regards to what my blog really centers around -  travel, food, etc.  So, I thought I'd just put my internal conversations down and my thoughts often come off a bit bullet point-ish.  Just a warning to those that actually read my stuff, things … Continue reading Internal Bullet Points

This was more than a little … Continue reading Not A Parent Approved Post – New Tattoo

We Put Our Tourist Shoes On

Last weekend the husband and I put on our walking shoes and went to a very touristy spot that we hadn't been to in our two years in Japan yet.  While it is called The Raumen Museum it isn't really a museum per se. For 310 Yen we gained access to ramen love.  The first … Continue reading We Put Our Tourist Shoes On
