JAPAN DIARY : TOKYO (MINATO-KU & SHIBUYA)

  I still owe you the remaining part of our Japan travel diary. As the weather is currently particularly boring here (cold, dark and rainy, arghh), I thought it’s the perfect moment to jump back to the time when we were out and about, travelling and enjoying life on the other side of the world.…

A major growth spurt, growing teeth, me having the flu…yes, sometimes it just comes all together. In this case, it’s been perfect timing that I had already planned a trip for myself and Thiago to go home and visit my mom. However, in moments like that, it’s what I love to do anyway.With being expats,…
