Helloooo, I’m baaaaack! 🙂
I’ve been back since last week and getting back into reading blogs a bit here and there… it’s always a challenge to get back into blogging for some reason. I think it’s about routine. Having 2 weeks of unstructured time really makes it difficult to follow a schedule again.
Anyway, this post is about my trip! I debated about the level of detail to include about my Japan trip – this isn’t a travel blog and I’m no travel writer. So I’ll devote a few posts to the trip itself: today will be an overview of where we visited with photos. I’ll do another post on random stuff like food and cultural stuff. Then, the MAKEUP!!! 😀 😀 😀
We started our trip out with a 5 day stay in Tokyo:
Then we headed out of Tokyo, first to Nagano, then to Kanazawa, then Kyoto and finally back to Tokyo.
What I loved about Japan was the mix of modern with the traditional. My personal favourite was the short stay in Nagano: both the Matsumoto Castle and our overnight at the ryokan were highlights of the trip for me. I also really enjoyed Kyoto – the city of a thousand temples! Thanks to everyone who followed me on Instagram and Twitter while I was away – I hope you enjoyed looking at a snippet of the sights I saw in Japan. There’s so much to explore there – I can’t wait to go back! ❤
