Osaka & Kyoto, Japan: February 2017

Why, hello there!  It’s been a REALLY long time since I posted anything, a year in fact!  I have A LOT of catching up to do! What is really unfortunate about being so behind is I have forgotten many details about the trip, and am using photos to remind myself.  I really wish I had…

Paris, France: November 2016
