Osaka – Namba Parks

Osaka Namba Parks

“We’re going to a mall.”  It was 8 a.m. and Mr. Misadventures had just indicated we were going shopping. Something wasn’t right. Had my hubby whacked his head?  I am not much of a shopper and this is how all the shopping centers had looked like thus far: So I wasn’t exactly jumping for joy […]

Osaka’s Kuromon-Ichiba Market

Osaka’s Kuromon-Ichiba Market

After five days in Kyoto we headed to Osaka on the regional train.  I didn’t know what to expect of Osaka, quite frankly I had spent most of my time researching Kyoto.  Osaka was mainly a transition point for us as that is where we flew in and out of. After two and a half-days […]

Happy 5-Year Anniversary AFAR

AFAR 5 Year

Happy 5-Year Anniversary AFAR (+ Giveaway) I wanted to take a moment to do a special shout out to AFAR on their fifth anniversary. They are quite literally the little magazine with a big idea that was nurtured and fought for and quite definitely succeeded at, a magazine about deep travel experience (#traveldeeper). Their mission is […]

Travel Makes Me Sparkle – #SparkleWithDASANI

Travel Makes Me Sparkle – #SparkleWithDASANI

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of DASANI® Sparkling Water. I definitely (definitely!) write a lot about food here!  But the reality is, travel drives my entire being. Travel is the thing that makes me sparkle. I could not imagine my life without exploration.  Luckily I have a life partner that […]

Kyoto in Black and White

Kyoto in Black and White

Similar to the Paris in HDR post I did last September, I thought I would share a series of Kyoto photos Mr. Misadventures and I took in black and white, because sometimes an image just begs to be presented that way! All these photos are from various temples we visited during our week-long stay.  There […]

(Not quite) Wordless Wednesday #210 – Kyoto Colors

Kyoto Colors

There was so much red everywhere when I was in Kyoto, from time to time it was refreshing to see a pop of another color!  Granted, I know there is red in this photo, but I love the blue! How about you? What’s your favorite color to “see?”

Kyoto – Fushimi Inari Shrine

Fushimi Inari Shrine

On our last day in Kyoto before heading to Osaka, Mr. Misadventures and I visited Fushimi Inari Shrine. It’s located on the outskirts of Kyoto but is super easy to get to as the entrance is just outside the JR (train) Nara Line Inari Station, literally a 5-minute ride from Kyoto Station. The shrine is […]

Kyoto – Temple Talk

Kyoto from Yasaka Shrine

One thing you will quickly learn about visiting Kyoto is that there are thousands of Buddhist temples and Shinto shrines.  To me it is very much like the chateaus in France, particularly in the Loire Valley.  After awhile it can be overwhelming and they all blend together.  A few days into our trip to Kyoto […]
