My eldest sister and I span an age gap of 16 years. Believe it or not, she was a grandma before I even gave birth to Miss Molasses. She has four children (and now one grandbaby), all four married, and all of them went to Mexico on their honeymoon. I loved to snicker about how, of all...

LDS church was an awesome experience in Japan! We were able to attend services in both Hiroshima and Kyoto and the ward members went out of their way to make us feel welcome and members of their congregation. We sang in English, and everyone else sang in Japanese! We were provided personal translators, and the whole experience felt very...

Grocery shopping in Japan is like stepping into an alternate universe. The staples are there, bread, meat, fruit, candy, drinks, etc., but the availability of items on the island versus the mainland, and specific items that are exclusive to Japan is wholly different. Not to mention, the culture of Japan is totally ingrained into the grocery shopping rituals in...

I can’t help but think of Koko’s Kitchen in Nintendo’s Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild game when I think about Nishiki Market, also known by locals as Kyoto's Kitchen. The name, the place, they are so similar there is no way this is merely a coincidence. ► Ranking: #cleadiaper Nishiki Market 〒604-8054 Kyoto Prefecture, Kyoto, Nakagyo Ward, 富小路通四条上る西大文字町609番地 +81 75-211-3882 Hours: 10am...

The farmer raises his goats in the countryside allowing them to graze freely and milks them every morning. He sets the milk aside for the local woman who comes each morning to purchase the fresh milk. After picking up the milk from the farmer, she travels down the road to the gardener to pick up strawberries, passion fruit, mangoes...

It’s practically impossible to think of Mexico and not think of Chichen Itza. Mayan Ruins and Mexico are fairly synonymous with one another, and Chichen Itza is the most famous of them all. It’s even one of the Wonders of the World. So obviously, it was on our ‘must do’ list of adventures during our recent trip. We also...

We wasted the day lazily away at Tulum, enjoying every minute soaking up the historical scenery, architecture and powerful location of the most important trade post in the Mayan civilization of the 13th century and didn’t want to stop swimming in the shadow of El Castillo, but nearby was Dos Ojos. Dos Ojos: The cenote with two eyes. We don’t...

I was 9 years old the first time I read Crime and Punishment by Fyodor Dostoevsky. This still remains one of my favorite books, no doubt in part, because it left such a lasting impression upon my young mind. The internal dilemma Raskolnikov is tormented with throughout the book is so raw and pointed. The fear, loathing, and guilt is...

When we visited Japan we knew exactly what we wanted to do in both Hiroshima and Kyoto. They were easy - they had designated attractions that were obvious and historical. Places we couldn't miss! But when it came to planning our adventures in Tokyo, we were at a loss. Tokyo has no distinctive genre of attractions. It’s a melting...

Should you Drive in Mexico? The answer is unequivocally yes! Just like you should definitely Rent a Car in Mexico, (see Part 1), you should absolutely explore Mexico outside of the tourist zones of Cancun and Playa del Carmen. You may have to take your nerves to the gym to pump some iron in advance, because driving in Mexico can...
