I <i>almost</i> caved in and bought an in-flight wifi pass, but quickly reconsidered, and decided to type instead. This trip is taking FOR-EV-ER.

I travelled to Matsumoto with an old friend from university.

On the next day, we drove along Venus Line, stopping at Utsukushigahara Highland and Mt Kirigamine.
