I often that I’ve been time traveling when I get back from one of my trips. While it is true that I go through some trippy time zone changes, I sometimes have moments of feeling like I’m in a different place and time… This morning, as I was biking in Redondo Beach, CA next to - Read More -

OSAKA

When traveling to Kyoto, it just makes sense to visit Osaka (or vice versa). They are not that far apart (maybe an hour by train), but the cities feel worlds apart.
