Stockhom – Part 2

Stockhom – Part 2

One of the cool things I really like about the area I was staying in was how convenient it was to access the station. When I had initially looked up the route to get from the station to the residential area, I realized it would be a 15 min walk uphill. What I didn’t realize was that from the station they had this service call an elevator/shuttle which takes you directly to the residential buildings. It’s essentially a free tram…

Stockholm – Part 1

I took a really short trip to Europe last week. I don’t even know how I managed to fit in Stockholm, Helsinki and Tallinn all in 7 days, but with really meticulous planning it went off [mostly] without a hitch!

After this experience I would have to agree it is…

Yoro

Yoro

One of the day trips I did during the spring was to Yoro Park in Gifu. I had always wanted to visit the Site of Reversible Destiny Park in Yoro since I saw pictures of it in a travel guide many years ago, but I never had the time to go until I moved to Nagoya. Finally I took advantage of one of the days I had off in May and went by myself! Side note: I’m not sure if…
