Tokyo (last December)

Long time no talk, huh? I'll be back with a life update soon, but in the meanwhile... here are the photos from my trip to Tokyo over New Year's last December. I was able to take a few days off work and thought I'd meet some friends who were travelling there. At the time, it felt a bit overly luxurious, but given current times I'm glad I took the chance to go.

I don't think I need to say that Tokyo is an amazing place and I loved it! It's the perfect city... big and bustling but easy to get around, lots of districts with their own distinct character, and super safe.

Unfortunately I took a lot of photos on my old phone which then broke! And since the trip was a fair while ago, I don't remember many particular details, so this will be kind of a photo dump.

Life during a pandemic, so far

Hello! I don't even know how to start this post. I haven't really done a proper life update since last September. To be honest, I'd fallen out of love with blogging. My South America trip was followed by a great summer, but I had no desire to blog about it at all. However, with the current situation, I figured it would be interesting to leave some kind of record of what I've been doing.

Ushuaia

The final post from my trip to South America last October. Strange to think how freely we moved about the world just a few months ago.

Ushuaia is the (controversial) southernmost city in the world, located in Tierra del Fuego (or, the land of fires). How bloody romantic does that sound? Visiting had been on my bucketlist for years, since I first spotted it on the world map that I had on my desk as a child. That being said, I didn't know much about the place itself. It's a strange mix of shipping port, tourist town (cruises to Antarctica leave from here), and residential areas.

Torres del Paine

Excuse the radio silence around here lately. I've had to move to another town for work. In the meanwhile, I still need to finish up my posts from Patagonia last October!

The W Trek in the Torres del Paine was amazing; well, apart from the one little fact that we got struck down by food poisoning so badly that we couldn't do the last part. But what we did get to see was possibly some of the best natural scenery I've ever experienced in my life.
