ONOMICHI TRAVEL GUIDE | Things to Do in Onomichi 2017

ONOMICHI, JAPAN | ONOMICHI TRAVEL GUIDE | While Pim stood by the baywalk’s railing, an old woman, all smiling, passed by and said something in Japanese and gestured towards the camera.

I thought our trip in Nepal would only last for two weeks, knowing Tobias (my boyfriend and travel buddy of two years or so) had stayed for a month here already, trekking the Annapurna Circuit.

(If you’ve been to India, it is a simpler version of tali). It was more than enough for an […]
