Autumn Splendour – Japan by Bike Pt. 14



No problems again from my rather ambitious camping spot.  I even had time to procrastinate and try and perfect a Facebook pout, initially I was trying for a MySpace emo picture but I just couldn’t pull it off.

Not bad for 7am and almost a week without a shower.  If you’re wondering about hygiene my grooming consisted of showering with wet wipes, it actually worked pretty well but I guess you struggle to smell yourself 😛

The whole reason I came to Kanazawa was for the Kenrokuen Gardens, famed across Japan as the prettiest gardens and renowned for their exceptional beauty during Autumn.  I may be on to a winner here.

  3. What a beautiful place. Worth the rainy ride. Thanks for a very straightforward and candid posts. For some reason I can’t stop reading, I read all parts of the Japan trip in one go. Sign of a good travel blog. Happy and safe travels to you.

  4. Wow. I read all of this Japan trip in one go also. This was amazing. The writing and photos go great together. If there was money in it, I would say you should have become a photo journalist, it’s clear to me you are born to be one. Great travel blog.
