Around the world – part 1 Japan (Tokyo)

Wow I can’t believe we are at the end of our first leg of the trip. Bitter sweet, I’m happy to have had the time to visit Michiyo and her family but really sad to leave. We had a great time, have seen so much and Michiyo and Eric were amazing hosts. Here are some of the highlights:

Vancouver to Tokyo – the flight was great on JAL but we were a little overtired on arrival, making it tough to grasp the train system. It ended up taking a few more hours than necessary but when we did finally get to our capsule hotel I was so tired I had the best sleep. The capsule itself was quite spacious… We both fit in it plus our luggage. There was even a little tv. They provided the cutest pajamas too.


  
  
The next day we explored Tokyo found a shrine and temple, a Japanese department store and found a fun games room!


  
  
Then it was on to Kyoto…

 Next update – Kyoto, Shiga and Osaka.

Had fun exploring the #sunshinecoast with @katiemah and @racheladdante this past weekend. Do you know what to do if you run into a bear 🐻 in the woods? #hike #nature #rainforrest #explorebc #adventuresmart #bearsafety @bc_adventuresmart
This is one of my favourite illustrations from the Roberts Creek Mandala this year. Such a great project. It was started in 1997 when a group of friends painted over some negative graffiti. I first saw it back in 2007, and love that it's created new each year by the community and still going strong. The boy in the centre is the original organizer's son. #art #communityart #mandala #robertscreek #sunshinecoast #explorebc #robertscreekmandala
Seven years ago I spent a life changing month in #costarica for yoga teacher training at @anamayaresort Met so many wonderful people, fell in love with the jungle, and shifted my life's trajectory. #throwbackthursday #ytt #puravida #infinitypool #oceanview #yoga #namaste #sandtoesha #santosha
17 years since I first hiked here. My second visit, still gorgeous, but now this trio of lakes is no longer secret(ish). #bestroadtripever #nature #lovetrees
Made it to the island. By this last leg of the road trip riding felt like floating through air. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #vancouverisland #telegraphcove #cumberland #porthardy #suzukitu250x #roadtrip #islandhighway #hwy19 #hwy19a #2000km #1300miles #atwyld #britishcolumbia
At the end of #route16 we explored #princerupert and then hopped on the Northern Expedition for the 16 hour voyage down the inside passage. Gorgeous trip through the #greatbearrainforest We didn't see bears but saw lots of whales. #motorcycleroadtrip #explorebc #motorcycle #insidepassage #bcferries #rainforest #surroundedbynature #britishcolumbia #roadtrip #heritagediscoveryroute #nature #coast #moto #suzukitu250x
