Happy Easter beautiful ones.
Started our resurrection Sunday at church, followed by an Easter egg hunt in our one bed apartment, now we’re watching a French gardening show, devouring chocolate and dreaming about European summers.
Hope your day is glorious.
35mm ; wish you could smell these ❤️ almost smell like lilac
Heading into the night in search of adventure. Transkei Tuff teams making their way through low and high water river crossings and trekking up mountains late into the night. This is an element of adventure racing few people outside the sport really understand. I used to be one of them.

Was trying to reminisce & list my favorite sights from this 86 day journey. It’s almost impossible to narrow down, but for sure this island ranks pretty high🌴 #islandlife
is a good life.
A city I would go back and re-visit: Singapore 🇸🇬. Although it has many rules and fines, it was so well-maintained and fabulous. Putting it on one of my lists. Sooo many lists. 💁🏼♀️🗒🖊 #marinabaysands
Impressive & secure...The Imperial Palace is located on the former site of Edo Castle, a large park area surrounded by moats and massive stone walls in the center of Tokyo. It is the residence of Japan's Imperial Family.
Edo Castle used to be the seat of the Tokugawa shogun who ruled Japan from 1603 until 1867. In 1868, the shogunate was overthrown, and the country's capital and Imperial Residence were moved from Kyoto to Tokyo. In 1888 construction of a new Imperial Palace was completed. The palace was once destroyed during World War Two, and rebuilt in the same style, afterwards.
Omoide Yokocho, meaning “Memory Lane”, is one of the best night time areas in Shinjuku. So many old-looking tiny stalls stand in these few blocks, along with slightly bigger restaurants that might hold 10-12 ppl. Famous for local foods, mostly either yakitori, skewered meats or yakiniku (hibachi style) that you grill yourself, it is a must-see stop in Tokyo.
🍃 Sengan-en is a traditional garden and stately home built by the 19th head of the Shimadzu family, Mitsuhisa, in 1658. Sengan-en uses the principle of "borrowed scenery", and incorporates the background elements of active volcano Sakurajima and Kinko Bay as part of the gardens.🍃

There are many varieties of cherry blossoms (sakura) in Japan. 🌸
They also have many different meanings. They symbolize clouds due to their nature of blooming en masse, besides being an enduring metaphor for the ephemeral nature of life, an aspect of Japanese cultural tradition that is often associated with Buddhist influence. The association of the cherry blossom dates back to 18th-century scholar Motoori Norinaga. The transience of the blossoms, the exquisite beauty and volatility, has often been associated with mortality and the acceptance of destiny and karma; for this reason, cherry blossoms are richly symbolic, and have been utilized often in the arts.
Kinkaku-ji officially named Rokuon-ji is a Zen Buddhist temple in Kyoto, Japan.
The name Kinkaku-ji literally means the Temple of the Golden Pavilion and the official name Rokuon-ji literally means the Deer Garden Temple.
Kinkaku-ji’s history dates to 1397, when the villa was purchased from the Saionji family by Shogun Ashikaga Yoshimitsu, and transformed into the Kinkaku-ji complex.
Yoshimitsu intended to cover the exterior of the main building of Kinkau-ji with gold, but only managed to coat the ceiling of the third floor with gold leaf before his death.
After Yoshimitsu death in 1408, the building was converted into a Zen temple by his son, according to his wishes.
10 minutes later we saw one of the craziest sunsets I've ever seen! You can check it out and do a comparison on my last post!
Playing around with scale and silhouettes to bring the audiences attention more on the experience than the subject.
What a treat. First day with clear skies in a while, so the locals say. We saw #Fuji
up close and personal and then saw it again from Port of Yokohama, in the background, as the sun was going down.
Amazing sight today!! This mountain contributes to Japan's physical, cultural, and spiritual geography. Mount Fuji is the tallest mountain in Japan, standing at 3,776 meters (12,380 feet) The last time Mount Fuji erupted, in 1707, volcanic ash fell on Tokyo.
