The wish to visit Japan has been there for a long time. Finally we decided to go at end of 2019. The trip included days in Tokyo, Takayama, Kanazawa, Kyoto, Hiroshima and Osaka. Japan is very much about contrasts and we got the opportunity to experience some of them.

Northern Spain

Having explored different parts of Italy we decided to do a roundtrip in northern Spain including parts of Basque, Asturia and Castillia y Leon regions. We spend two weeks starting in beginning of May and had all sorts of weather including hail, heavy rain and blue skies with temperatures ranging from 5  to 28 degrees Celsius.


The purpose of the trip was to learn  more about the regions and the people south of Himalaya living in the Sikkim region of northeast part of India, Bhutan and Kathmandu area of Nepal. Tibetan Bhuddism has strong influence in all the regions above..


We have heard a lot of positive things about Croatia so we did want to find out what was it all about. We also had an  anniversary to celebrate together with rest of the family so we agreed early to  combine some sightseeing and sailing.

To experience more than just the coastline we started of in Zagreb. I is a nice city with most parts within walking distance.
