From Tokyo you can make several excursions: Yokohama, Hakone, Mount Fuji and the five lakes ... We have opted for two due to lack of time: Kamakura and Nikkô. Kamakura was the capital of the country between 1185 and 1333, and is famous for having two of Japan's oldest Zen monasteries and a huge statue of a Buddha (Daibutsu).
New story of the 15-day trip to Namibia for free that we made in August 2016. That day we continued exploring Etosha in self-drive safari (that is, driving ourselves) and ended up spending the night in an Outjo hotel. Come on! We get up early to dismantle the camp before going to Etosha.
We have spent a weekend in Cuenca with a very special group of friends. A few weeks ago, Victor, from My homeland are my shoes, invited us to spend the weekend at his home in the Huerta de la Obispalía, a small town where all the neighbors know each other and in which every morning a van He will sell the bread, because there is neither bakery nor shops.
The archaeological site of Copán is one of the most impressive in Central America and allows you to see the sacred structures of this ancient Mayan city. The ruins are in the small town of Copán Ruinas, located almost next to the border between Honduras and Guatemala. Since in Antigua Guatemala we were quite close, we decided to take an excursion to go see them, spend a night in Copan Ruinas and return the next day.
That was our last whole day in Marrakech. The day dawned splendid and there was nothing cold on the terrace of the riad. We were waiting for some pancakes with tea, yogurt and juice for breakfast. I was definitely going to miss breakfast on the terrace! That morning we wanted to dedicate her to walk in the souks and go shopping.
At 6 in the morning we were called to wake up, since at 7 we had a visit to the temple of Edfu. We had been sailing during the night and when we woke up we were in front of the temple. In Edfu basically only the temple is visited. The cruise ships dock in front of him and at the end the visits leave.
