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.

Here are few pictures from my last few days in Canggu. The first is after sunset @finnsbeachclub then @desaseni_avillageresort after a sunrise yoga flow class, the view from my patio, and the bike I’ve been trying to explore with but trying to stay out of Canggu rush hour has been tough #bali #canggu #canggubali #finnsbeachclub #sunset
Loving Gili Air the most of all the places I’ve been so far. Pics are of the boat ride over and then my early morning walk pre and post sunrise 🌅 #lovegili #sunrise #baliindonesia
Just finished my first Tantric Hatha yoga class, loved it. Early morning focus on bringing the breath into the naval/belly to help release negative energy 😁 #yoga #canggu #bali #2020tayfa
Woke up at 1am on my Bali Birthday to do the Batur Volcano hike. What a great day. Very steep incline that varied from road, to lava rock, to volcanic clay. We hiked up in the dark so we had no idea how steep some of the drops were until we hiked back down in the daylight! Mt. Batur is an active volcano about 1,770 metres above sea level. Our hike up took about 2 hours. Base camp is about midway up the mountain, so our gain was 900 metres, 13 km. View at the top is of Mt Agung, another active volcano. #mtbatur #volcano #hike #bali #mtagungbali #birthdayfun #thisis50
I’m back in Bali. After a little beach exploration in Kuta, we’re now settled in Ubud for a bit. Hit one of my favorites @clearcafeubud and now ready for morning yoga @theyogabarn followed by a sound healing session at @pyramidsofchi today. Best day ever. #bali #beachwalk #ubud #kuta #soundhealing Yes, those are recycled water bottles made into a Christmas tree.
