「22日目」Day 22

by

The last day! I felt amazing this morning when I woke up, and even happier after I moved the curtains to the side and saw that it wasn't raining as promised. When we got ready though, the room started rocking a bit. Earthquake! I didn't feel one in a long time. Switching on the TV showed that ...

I'll start today's diary with a rant, because my husband keeps getting up around 5 or so every day to do some work on his laptop (yes he brought his heavy laptop on the journey)... He also types or more like hacks around on the keyboard or moves around in the room which completely cuts my ...

Today my body still hasn't recovered completely even I slept quite well. My feet and muscles felt tired all day long and we had to take more breaks. よく寝たのに、今日も体の疲れは取れてなかった。足と筋肉はちょっとだるかったな。 We passed Gifu City and walked all the way close to the next mountain to Tarui-juku. Since there are no hotels in the area we took a train back ...
