I don’t remember how everything started. Or when. All I know is that 11 years ago I traveled outside my home country (Romania) for the first time. And I haven’t stopped since in my quest to travel the world. I have traveled to 51 countries around the globe, and I fell in love with each and every one of them. But today I will not talk about the first 50 of them, but about the 51st, Japan.
It has been on my list since forever, but somehow there were always better plane ticket offers for another destination. This is why I haven’t gotten to Japan until this spring.
Spring, they say, is the best season to visit the Country of the Rising Sun, especially during the cherry blossom. I did that I was surprised to find it even more beautiful than in the pictures.
For two weeks I toured the country and the only advice I can offer is travel as far as you can, eat as much as you can and enjoy it fully! Japan is a country of wonderful nature, great food and amazing history and people.
If I haven’t convinced you yet, I’ll show you my favorite 20 pictures of my holidays. Well, 21 pictures because there were two images of the cherry blossom I enjoyed equally.
