Here, I met up with Angela, who would become my travel buddy for the next three weeks.
Angela and I met when I was travelling in Japan in 2008. That was my first backpacking trip alone. I met her and her friend, Shanda, in Miyajima, the town famous for its floating torii. We met again in Himeji, at the Himeji Castle, the next ...
