Japan 2014

Personal, Travel

I’m still in the midst of setting up my blog here, with tonnes of photos and thoughts to sort out XD In the meantime, here’s a pilot test post about my Japan trip in 2014! We went to the Kansai region (Kyoto, Osaka, Nara etc). It was my second trip to Japan but this country is just soooo interesting that I don’t think I’ll ever be bored of it. If anything, being able to immerse myself in the art and design that crops up at every corner is enough of a reason to visit again and again 🙂

My mum seldom had the opportunity to go overseas when she was young, and most of her adulthood was spent working and raising us. Her knees are basically disabled from the manual labour she used to do, and even after operating on them, she can’t walk very well. Taiwan is predominantly Chinese, and has great infrastructure for someone whose mobility is limited, so my girlfriend and I brought my mum to Taipei for a few days to soak in the atmosphere, shop and eat a lot, and generally have a nice vacation within a culture that is still relatable to her. 🙂
