Trip Planning Begins Again

Coming to the end of my festive break ...... apart from starting to get back into work proper, I also realised that its also time to get back to firming my trip itinerary proper. Didn't manage to do much trip planning over December due to a variety of reasons as stated here, sigh. So, apart … Continue reading Trip Planning Begins Again

Reminiscing Autumn

After deciding to do a spring trip (next year 2020) instead of a autumn/winter trip as written here, it turns out I do miss the colourful autumn leaves after all (perhaps it has something to do with work blues) ......

Back with another food review entry. As previously blogged, I made a short day trip to Hirosaki (from Aomori), but come to think of it now, it was more like a short stop-over, since I wasted so much time at Aomori before eventually boarding the 1444 Hrs local train for the 50 min journey to … Continue reading Food Mission 2018: Taisho Roman Kissa-Shitsu 大正浪漫喫茶室
