Little adventures can sometimes be the hardest to come by:

Feeding people during the Lent fasting season may be strange, showing love as well… but traditions are kept alive even as they change and adapt their original intentions.
One such tradition is the Liebstatt Sunday in Gmunden, a pretty little tradition now all around loving – and often, somewhat cheeky – gingerbread hearts.
Tokyo, on my arrival and first days, presented itself as a megalopolis from high up, that felt like a collection of villages on the ground.
Back again, with the Autumn Festival taking place in the Meiji Shrine park and with the hustle and bustle of Shinjuku and Shibuya, it was parkland – and Blade Runner.
We don’t often have reason to think of where we’ve come from and where we’ve gone. In this world of instant communication and a fascination with youthful impulsivity, even less so.
The 24 Hours Burgenland Extreme has, from its inception, been a fun extreme.
Walking, running, crawling – whatever you have to do – around the Neusiedler See lake in the middle of winter is definitely quite crazy.
In the center of Kyoto, you can find Nishiki Market, Shijo Dori road with lots of shops and major department stores such as Daimaru and Takashimaya… a lot of busy-ness and business.
In the middle of that, if you are not completely enveloped in the shopping mindset, you may notice a shrine.
Have you ever found yourself in a city for a visit, wanting to get the most of your time but not just run after the usual must-see sights (again) – and ended up with a day that was immensely dissatisfying, yet ultimately full of discoveries?
Sightseeing shouldn’t be a marathon race. Sometimes, in between exploratory days to just see what can be found by chance, on errant walks, it can be nice to check off the must-see places.
It was actually by chance that I ended up doing a sweep across Kyoto, from one famous temple to the next, during just one day…
Fushimi-Inari Taisha – Sanju-sangen-do (- Yogen-in) – Kiyomizu-dera – Ginkakuji – Kinkakuji – Ryoan-ji – Ninna-ji (- Nishi-Hongwan-ji)
I’m pretty sure I read somewhere that you should go to the south side of Uji, from the railway station, should you decide to go there at all.
North side, wrong side of the tracks. Nothing to see there.
