First of all, prayers go out to those who are in Florence’s path. I graduated undergrad in North Carolina and have many friends on the east coast. Be safe, all! I’m thinking about you.
We are loving our time along the coast (and ‘country-style’ living) in Kyotango, Japan. Very quiet and peaceful. It’s a traditional home with very low tables and floor sleeping. The breakfast is off-the-hook good! Literally. The host’s dad fishes within 50 feet from our room and I eat the catch in the morning. So good!
Our host is an oyster fisherman, and I am hoping to go out with him before the trip ends. Stay tuned.
The Naomi Osaka situation was interesting to watch. If you don’t know, she was the first Japanese tennis player ever to win the US OPEN. It was a huge deal here. To see how their media gracefully navigated the crying-Serena situation was amazing. Always focusing on the positive. The full coverage reflected their culture perfectly - humble, kind, and thoughtful.
I was excited to grab this rare photo of a Geisha walking to her Friday night duties. Their lives are quite a mystery. If you are not aware, here is a good article that explains.
In this week’s podcast episode, we reflect on one of our favorite trips in our journey so far - Machu Picchu and Cusco, Peru.
Visiting Machu Picchu is a bucket list travel location for many travelers. It was absolutely a location that we had to see on our journey. While making your trip to see the historic Inca ruins, you will likely spend time in Cusco, Peru.
We think you should visit for more than just a day or two discovering this historic city. With some much to uncover in the city and countless day trips to be had to see Inca ruins nearby, we stayed longer than a week in Cusco.
In this episode, we give you the tips and insight that you need to have a good time, from transportation to safety to what foods to expect.
Hope it’s a good, safe weekend ahead.
