Tohoku

Tohoku

After a windy start to our Tohoku trip, we were lucky the remainder of our time turned out much better. As our schedule was so packed this time, we decided to scrap some of the touristy things and reserve a few hours to do our shopping. However, we had to get the majority of it done in the morning, as we were heading to a ryokan in the evening. It would be easier to ship our luggage directly back to Haneda Airport…

We had to ship one luggage to Sendai, pick up our pocket WiFi,…

Bruges

Bruges

I managed to save the best for last as I spent the final day of my vacation in Bruges. Designated as an UNESCO world heritage site, Bruges is one of the most well preserved medieval towns in Europe. Not only it is rich in history, it also has beautiful canals that run through its city centre. I definitely recommend it as a day trip from Brussels. The train to Bruges took around 90 minutes from Brussels Central. After getting off…
