Frantic February

I know it's been a bit since I last posted, so much has been happening this month with preparing for our move out of Japan.  Plus we have been battling a little bit with admin trying to get our flights figured out.  It's so hard to push off a big trip till the last minute, … Continue reading Frantic February

Two Off The Japan Bucket List

As our time in Japan comes to a close we managed to get one last trip in that has been hanging over us for the last three years.  It accomplishes ticking off more than one bucket list for us.  Some will not appreciate our indulgence here but it was something we truly wanted to experience … Continue reading Two Off The Japan Bucket List

Awesome Noise

Noise...I've experienced different kinds of noise to wrap up my 2015.  From OzzFest (Head-banging, thrash metal concert festival) to Hong Kong at Christmas, and Tokyo for New Years Eve - the noise was real.  One was literally a lot of sound and cranked up high and the other was more pushy salesmen and noisy touristy … Continue reading Awesome Noise

The Honeymoon

On March 15, 2012 I got married.  It was a quick Las Vegas - drive thru non-event that neither of our families attended with us.  Almost a year later we had a reception where we invited our families to celebrate our wedding with us. We never had a honeymoon. This year is our last year in Japan, … Continue reading The Honeymoon

Time and Energy

I have a fantastic vacation to report about but there's so much going on right now I'm just not focused in enough to do the trip justice. With work and trying to squeeze in life stuff, the next couple of weeks is going to be crazy busy. Ozzfest concert series this weekend! I feel bad … Continue reading Time and Energy

Another Bullet Point List

I have posts I want to put up about things like the holiday a few days ago and such but man there is so much going on right now I can't seem to sit down to sort it out. Happening: Our orders are not solid yet so we are not sure where we are headed … Continue reading Another Bullet Point List

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. We left around 10:00 pm and arrived around 8:00 am, yep all night drive.  No, we didn't get much sleep but we pushed through and really enjoyed … Continue reading Iwakuni, Miyajima Island and Hiroshima

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 Is Paradise?

Recently, I have been hearing such amazing things about a certain place we are likely going to be moving to next.  Raves about it being absolute paradise which got me thinking...what is paradise?  It's rather subjective isn't it? Paradise to me is often not paradise to someone else.  Just as "must see" things to one … Continue reading This Is Paradise?

Finally Fuji-San

This was not how I intended to meet Mt. Fuji.  Two and a half years ago I had planned to hike to the summit of this iconic and beautiful World Heritage site at some point during our 3 years here. Last year I planned to hike it with my husband and his daughter, I was simply … Continue reading Finally Fuji-San
