Vienna

Vienna

Back from another trip to Europe! I took a week off to visit Austria and Germany for the first time last week. While it wasn’t my intention to go to Munich during Oktoberfest, as I was planning on going to the city anyway I figured it wouldn’t hurt to coincide my travels with the festival. I’m glad I went because I ended up having a great time and it was so much fun experiencing it in person. My first stop…

Sayonara Japan!

Sayonara Japan!

Naturally I ended up getting sick, but at least I still managed to get to where I needed before I crashed. =S Our first amusement park was Tokyo Disneyland. I had been to…

Yamadera & Yamagata

Yamadera & Yamagata

For our last day in Tohoku, we started the morning with a breakfast buffet at the ryokan, then we took the shuttle bus back to Sakunami Station. It was surprisingly a nice day out, so instead of taking the local line directly to Yamagata, we did a two-hour stopover in Yamadera. 
 The view from Yamadera was absolutely breathtaking. Even though there were 1,000 steps to get up, we stopped often enough to catch our breath and admire the scenery. There’s…
