Pin-spiration Thursdays: Taiwan

In just 2 days we will be taking a short 40min flight to Taiwan, we will be spending 3 nights in Taipei followed by 1 night in Hualien where we hope to visit the famous Taroko Gorge National Park, then back to Taipei for the night before our early flight back to Okinawa. This will be my first time leaving Japan and i'd like to think of it as the beginning of my Asia travels because i have a big list of places i want to visit. I thought it would be fun to share a sneak peak of what our trip will look like, the same way i did before our trip to mainland Japan. (Pin-spiration Thursdays: Japan

Concrete Jungle - Tokyo Sky Tree

On our second day in Tokyo we visited some of our favorite sites, the first being the Tokyo Sky Tree. When we visited the city in December 2013 we saw the Sky Tree and shopped at the mall underneath but we decided not to go up and i kind of regreted it, so we knew this time it was a must. The altitude did get to me but i managed to take some pictures of the concrete jungle that is Tokyo, Japan.

^^ i spy the Asahi Golden Flame ^^

^^ this monitor had an interactive photograph of the view and it was soo much fun to be able to zoom in ^^ 

These posts are super late but the crazy work is dying down and i finally have a chance to sit down and edit these. Enjoy.

Camping at Kouri Island!

One of my co-workers invited us for a last minute beach camping trip to Kouri Island in October, we had been wanting to go camping for a while and we'd never visited Kouri so it was a win-win. Sadly i worked that Saturday, so we weren't able to make it there until sunset but we pitched our tent as soon as we got there and enjoyed some down time by the fire. We stargazed, ate burgers and made s'mores! It was kind of hard to fall asleep because let's face it the sand isn't that comforable but the weather was perfect and the sound of the waves was pretty amazing.

The next day we woke up incredibly early thanks to the sun and the sound of waves, we had breakfast, walked around the beach and then packed our stuff. We wanted to get in the water but sadly the ocean temperature had already started to drop and was freezing! Before leaving Kouri we parked our car, ate some Blue Seal ice cream, walked around the bridge and took pictures of the crystal blue waters. It was a great little getaway and we can't wait to go camping again. 

What do you think of those gorgeous blues? Aren't they dreamy!
