Up next, a reunion with Japan & India
I have not been so active with blogging lately. It just has not tempted me to sit infront of the computer in my spare time. However, once I finish a post I allways feel really happy so it is just about finding the time…
I know I promised more Poland and that will come 🙂 I just felt like doing a small update on what´s up next for me when it comes to traveling. Around the corner are two reunions with two of the most amazing countries I have ever visited, Japan & India.
One of the most rewarding experiences with travelling is the sometimes overwhelming input of new impressions, to have to familiar oneself with the unknown which in turn teaches something about oneself at the same time. Talking about impressions my holiday in Japan three years ago is one of the most unique and amazing experiences I have had. The presentation of food is a big impression every time. A true delight for both belly and eye.
The picture above is of my Japanese breakfast in lovely Ryokan Shimaya, close to the snowmonkeys in Yudanaka. The first picture below is in a Ryokan in Kinosaki onsentown. I was for the first time presented with a Kaiseki meal after I have traditionally taken a bath in the hotels own onsen (hot spring) and dressed into a Yukata. After this followed a onsen hopping evening among all the local bathhouses in Kinosaki. But that is another story. On the last picture is a bento box. A typical food option for a train journey. So beautiful and delicious.
In a few weeks I will start a blog journey about Japan. Tokyo, Yudanaka, Takayama, Kyoto, Nara and Kinosaki, all visited 2009. This time I will visit Tokyo, Hiroshima, Fukuoka, Kurokawa onsen town, Yufuin and the hotspring mecca Beppu. As you might have understood by now I am passionate about soaking in hot springs.
In December I will travel back to India where I was 2006 last time. Me and my travel friend Louise, who frequently has been mentioned in this blog, will do a tour through Rajasthan followed by 9 days beach pampering in Goa 😀 I look forward to lot´s of colours, great spicy food, magical impressions and lazy beach days.
One of my highlights on all my trips is the encounter with animals. Animals brings out the mother love in me. Below in Kerala, India, with the cutest goat ever.
