Japan Part 3: Rural mountains & Tokyo

 I’ve had to take a break from BozAround the last couple of months, too busy launching my next travel venture, moodAway. But we’re almost there with the launch so I can finally put some attention back into my first (blog) love. I have a long list of posts to write in my head and everyday I tell myself, I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it…Anyway, it’s a pleasant feeling to gather notes on Japan long after we’ve come back. Here’s the last part of our Japan trilogy: 2 nights in Obuse, and 5 nights in Tokyo to finish it all.

Japan Part 2: Kyoto and the Kiso Valley

This is the second part of our Japanese trilogy. We went from Hiroshima to Kyoto by train where we stayed 3 nights, and then went up north to the Japanese Alps by train again, to a tiny village called Magome.

When it pours, it rains.

I have been MIA these past six months and I feel I owe the blog a big apology. First of all, three children is not a piece of cake despite me trying hard to pretend it is. Then, we’ve been renovating an old farmhouse in the South of France and that alone could have been a full time job – in due time, the effort will all be worth it. Read my earlier post on how much the region around Saint Remy de Provence has to offer. And last but not least.. I am so busy with our final run on getting moodAway ready. You’ve not heard me talk about it yet but it’s a little idea that I hope will become big in the travel world. We’re all allowed to dream big!

Meanwhile, it’s time to complete my trilogy on Japan, from our incredible trip there. And I need to tell you about our romantic trip on the Amalfi Coast, about going on a BFF week-end in Stockholm, about having fun skiing in Val d’Isere, about celebrating a 40th birthday in Mallorca (hmmm.. might not talk about that one too much). Oh..and about feeding the cows in the Costwolds..

Japan Part 1: Osaka/ Naoshima/ Miyajima

I’ve been waiting for the right moment to tell you all about our trip in Japan. I wanted the posts to be the perfect reflection of everything that we experienced. But it’s impossible. Our journey there was so rich in Emotions. Tastes & Smells. Craze & Zen. History & Discoveries. I cannot find words (and time!) to say it all. Better leave it to the artists that I mention in this earlier post. This is a condensed version of our 17 days travelling around Central Japan, 5 of us now in the Boz family (i.e. it was not just a pack n’ go affair, although we did pack and go every 2 days as we were on a mission to see it all. Well, not exactly all. Thank you Inside Japan for the tremendous help in planning it)
