A few weeks ago, I decided to go to Japan for a little break before I became really busy with work again! Having a couple weeks off in a row had been rare for me, and I’m so glad I had a chance to unwind, explore and do something exciting and different from what I have been doing.
I suggest to any one that has a busy lifestyle or feels somewhat guilty to take time off from their usual life to try something different! It’s all going to be there for you when you come back, and not taking time off may hurt you more then taking the time off.
First stop, Tokyo.
This is the third time I have been here, so it was nice to not do the usual tourist things. Because of this, I took my time and walked throughout the different suburbs exploring shops, museums and side streets and exploring what was left of the cherry blossoms. I loved it.
Here’s a glimpse of some of the images I took:
Second Stop, Hiroshima.
I’ve never been to Hiroshima and was so interesting to see how different it was to the other cities. I bumped into my friends who were traveling the same time as me there which I loved. During this time, was when the big earth quake hit, even though it wasn’t close to where we were we had a Tsunami/ aftershock scare which was an experience I have never had before.
Third Stop, Kyoto and Nara.
Before heading home, I decided to go back to Kyoto, Himeji and Nara, it was nice to spend more time in these places. I ended up going on a tour and was nice hearing the history of these places.
