Today was exhausting! We went to the top of Mt. Misen on foot and cablecar, both of which were tiring in their own ways. I hate hiking, for one, and for two, I can't stand heights, so I was pretty much on edge the entire way up there. After we reached the summit, I was feeling much better; well enough to chase butterflies around and enjoy the beautiful view of the sea.
We went to a short class where we made our own ...
