Start with a slice of green tea and chocolate tart

Where did we start our round-the-world trip? We weighed the merits of various countries, calculated whether going East or West made the most sense, and looked at climate charts for where best to visit in September.   We considered a number of countries, and, for one reason or another, we put all but one aside. We started with Japan.

IMG_6550Tokyo and Kyoto welcomed us.  Yes, we arrived in these, to us, foreign cities and faced a learning curve, but we managed (often with the help of kind people). Most of all we enjoyed our daily walks and the discoveries made along the way each day.

The second country on our round the world trip is China.   So, please stay tuned.  Give us a week or two, and we’ll pick up the story line of our trip then.

    Hope you’re enjoying China. Without a VPN I’m guessing pretty difficult to post though. Hope to hear about your adventures soon!
