    Katsuo-ji: a place to make a wish

    In April when we went to Japan, we managed to go to the Katsuo-ji temple, a place we have never visited before. It’s quite hard to get to by public transportation, but we were lucky enough to get a ride up to the mountain. As we were approaching, we got excited because it looked like we would finally see some blooming Sakura trees. Until then we were quite unlucky, missing the full bloom by just a few days.

After taking the bus from Stansted airport to Victoria…

    A week in Avoriaz

    With so many places to discover, it’s always tempting to go somewhere new and spend a vacation exploring unknown locations. This winter, though, we both felt the need to relax and take a break, so we returned to Avoriaz, the same place we went to last winter. Last year we were here during the first week of January and had no snow. This year, we went during the last week of March and it couldn’t be more different. There was about a meter and a half of snow on the ground when we got here, which meant that what used to be the ground floor was now below street level…
