What I Love About Melbourne

  1. Coffee that makes me want to be a real coffee drinker
  2. Never eating at the same place twice
  3. Getting my fitness on just by walking around shopping or taking photos
  4. Much stimuli for the eyes
  5. Spending much needed time with friends whom I dearly love

Upside to Spending Time in the Country Life
  1. Destress from everyday life
  2. Spend quality time with friends/family
  3. Go "off the grid," but still access to be connected
  4. Get moving
  5. Happy mood when you get back to the city

List Item #90: Visit Japan


There's just absolutely TOO much to post about my experience in Japan in one post!  I decided to create a post for each of my favorite parts about our trip to Japan with tons and tons of pictures.  I recommend everyone to take the chance and visit this country, especially Tokyo.  It's got to be on my top list of favorite (& cleanest) cities ever!

Japan: Ramen Bowl


When I used to hear "ramen" I would think of microwave noodles with a seasoning packet with way too much salt.  (Top Ramen anyone?)  Well,  the real Japanese ramen bowl deal is where it is all at!  We went in winter and nothing tasted or felt better than a nice hot, steaming bowl of ramen!  And they were everywhere!
