Cabin Camping then Kick Back Kyoto

A travel blog entry by marybc


... while the bigger kids played in the river. It was another 'family' kind of day topped off by a game of dodge ball before lunch.
Then it was time to head back. We had a train to catch for the last leg of our trip .... a couple of days in Kyoto.
With the sun shining we were able to see more of the countryside as we drove to meet the train in Minabe.
We took a different road this time. Mayumi and family wanted to see us off at the train ...

Learning to Write

like and Paul can eat in Japan but 7-eleven we ...

Day 47 - Cruising in Kyoto

A travel blog entry by rick_and_mandy


... so we shall see. We wanted to go to Arashiyama, I had seen a photo and a note about it in the Lonely Planet. there is a temple there and a bamboo forest. Rick had done all the research once again and knew exactly what we had to do to get there. My husband is amazing with that sort of thing. He is not always a details man but - he does a fantastic job of researching, booking and co-ordinating all of our travel. I probably wouldn't have a clue, so I would like to sing ...
