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.
Going on a spiritual pilgrimage’s path in fastpacking fashion seemed a bit of an oddity even to me.
My plan in going to Hong Kong had been to seek out the route, more or less along Maclehose Trail, that the Fjällräven Classic’s expansion to Hong Kong will take.
I couldn’t even find out the exact route, though. So, I had already planned to only go on a part of Maclehose Trail, and to detour onto the Lion Rock trail.
Now, there was just one more day left until our flight back to Austria. Forecast for that day: Clearing skies.
