「21日目」Day 21

「21日目」Day 21

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 sleep. And he did that almost every day since the second part of the trip and I’m just so sleepy. This morning I was close to beat him up with my pillow. Hahaha.

今日の日記は文句でスタートするわ。
最近は毎日毎日、うちの主人は朝5時とかに起きて部屋でゴショゴョして、パソコンをたたいて。。寝れないの。もう一週間くらい眠くて眠くて。バカ太郎 (笑)

Neither less we got out and started at yesterday’s point Musa-juku.
The sun was merciless again and while I was dying in my thick jersey jacket (because I need long sleeves to protect me from sunburn) I finally grasped why it was feeling so much hotter than last week when we actually had 34℃ – the humidity is up!! That’s why I’m suffering even at lower temperatures..
When we took a rest I changed my drenched shirt with a thin long sleeve tee I actually packed for colder days and that was much better.

でもいつもどおり8時くらいに出て、武蔵宿からスタート。
なんか今日も朝から苦しい暑さで何だろうと思って。。そうだ!湿気!始まったよ。うぅー 途中に着替えて少し楽にした。




We walked down to Kusatsu and reached the point where the Nakasendo and the Toukaido (route to Edo via ocean routes) meet each other.
The lamp sais “Toukaido to the right, Nakasendo to the left”.
So after this point we are practically walking the Toukaido to Kyoto..

草津宿の途中に中山道と東海道は一緒になる場所はあります。そこについたとき、本当にテンション上がりました♡
と言うことで今日から実際には東海道を歩くのね。




We kept going until Seta today (about 6 km south of Kusatsu).

今日は瀬田まで。明日は京都に着きそうだね。ワクワク。

Walked distance:
26.2 km
Musa-juku to Seta

歩いた距離:
26.2 km
武蔵宿から瀬田まで

Money spent:
Train: 340¥
Lunch: 1760¥
Konbini: 300¥
Dinner: 2125¥
Hotel: 7000¥
= 11625¥

Today’s thoughts:
Good: Walked without problems.
Bad: It was super hot again. Walking in summer must have been almost unbearable in the past.

    Maybe it wasn’t that hot and humid in Japan in the past? Who knows … 😉

    Also super Leistung auf jeden Fall.
    Hast du durch das ganze Laufen abgenommen?
