2015, oh man. Where do I start? At random, perhaps...
Came back from Ecuador a week and a half late because my passport and cash were stolen
Bought new tires and got the AT rebuilt for our Suzuki Kei
Went to the dentist and hospital (too many times)
Almost got 300000 yen seized
Went to Thailand
Went to Okinawa
Went to Shikoku
Went to Nagoya
Went to Kusatsu Onsen, Gifu
Went to Shibu Onsen, Nagano
Went to almost every beach on the Izu Peninsula
Made tons of sausages, bacon, and wood projects
Spent a day in Tokyo with George
Saw plum blossoms in Atami
Bathed in the sulfur baths of Kusatsu
Ran a 1/2 marathon
Drank under Cherry blossoms in Mishima Taisha and Kanogawa
Rode the Deer Train again
Snorkeled around Tokashikijima and watched the sunrise from a beach
Had Misokatsu, Chicken wings and Belgian beer in Nagoya
Went to a second belgian beer festival in Yokohama and hand-made marche
Re-covered my motorcycle seat
Hiked a mountain with Ikeya-san
Went to so many summer festivals
Crossed the world's longest wooden walking bridge at midnight during a lighting storm
Rode a Segway
Crossed an old samurai-escape bridge made of vines
Bathed in the riverside baths of Iya Valley
Bathed in the ancient Dōgo onsen.
Slept in bamboo huts, traditional wooden Japanese houses, luxurious hotels, funky artsy 100-year old rooms, and more.
I dunno. It was fun.
