I have a bit of a fascination with Japan. Aside from a kayaking trip in the Bahamas with Outward Bound, my solo trip to Japan was my first overseas adventure. It was a bit overwhelming at the time but still an amazing experience (sugoi !!). Therefore, it’s sad for me to see what’s happening in Japan right now. I had hoped to go back there this year, and still do, but we’ll have to see how things go now.
Good luck to the people of Japan during this difficult time. Here’s some fun images from my trip to Japan in 2006.
