I hope you are all well (she says to herself). But yes, I am well. It was Golden Week last week in Japan. We left it too late to book anywhere abroad. Well, we could have but it would have cost a small fortune, so we just had a what’s that recent buzzword again?, oh, staycation. We got a JR Tokyo Wide Pass (and that’s JR east which caused a lot of confusion for us – Dear JR, maybe put east in the pass’ actual name?). So, where did we go?
We went to Kawaguchiko on Wednesday ...
I’ve been really terrible for blogging recently, I apologise for that. I haven’t been tending to take many photos either whilst I’ve been out and about but I’ll share the ones that I have taken.

We got to the shrine and ...

Took my mum to Barcelona ...
