Edit: apparently a few of my initial sentences magically disappeared from the post. They were definitely there when I previewed it! Aah…I need to remind myself to breathe. More.
Obviously I was talking about how it’s been a little hard to be at home without the computer.
Being limited sometimes brings about good things, though! I’m drawing more and having more ideas, which is great! Now if only I had a computer to make them a reality… Anyway, I’m bringing to life the very lost and forgotten Wrap Up category. But I’m changing it slightly. I need to find a name for it, which I don’t have at the moment – just because I have ideas, doesn’t mean I have solutions for everything okay? But since I’m currently weaving a new, more user friendly, blog design, I’m not gonna bother with names.
So let’s just get down to it.
Let’s call it interesting things I found around the web.
This fabulous apartment in Malmö, from My Scandinavian Home. // image from My Scandinavian Home.
This insane but beautiful thing, from Tuula, swimming with stingrays. // image from Tuula.
And the new ikea catalogue!
It was a pain to write this ten minute post on the mobile web version for WordPress…sigh. Again.
Fortunately, I’m getting better!
I have lent my computer to someone who needs it more than me at the moment, hence why there has been no updates lately, I will get back to it soon.
Excuse the strip, I just felt like going back in time a little.
Back from the beach! The weekend was amazing! Could have been better if it wasn’t for the funny fact that I forgot to put sunscreen on my belly, and now it’s a shade darker than the rest of my body — lovely isn’t it? I tan fast, you see, heck, I get tanned from crossing the street! No, no, no, that is not a good thing… I get crazy tan lines.
I am also confined to the sofa or bed, because I have been having this funny (ah ah) pain near my left shoulder blade, that really comes and goes, but evolved yesterday, while I was laughing like crazy, to a not funny stab-with-a-knife kind of pain… So yes. Fun, fun, fun!
Let’s talk about something else. Kyoto. Oh yes.
After Nagoya, we arrived in Kyoto completely devoid of any will to do anything but stay in bed sleeping, but alas, we did not do that. We did however get ourselves a really delicious breakfast served in our room, at Hyatt Regency. The hotel was pretty amazing: spacious and pretty room, with a huge bed and an awesome walk-in shower. Also you could open the blinds without the fear of people seeing you half-naked — that’s always a plus. The breakfast was incredible. We had a combined breakfast for two, with a traditional Japanese breakfast, featuring miso soup, grilled fish, vegetables, rice, etc, etc; and a western breakfast, with the mandatory eggs and bacon, pastries, jams, bread, etc, etc.

I can’t believe I wrote petty instead of PRETTY on the previous post.
All sorted out now, anyway.
The moment you read this I’ll be lying on warm sand, trying to keep akira off my towel and/or myself, reading another Murakami masterpiece, feeling the freshness of the Atlantic, hopefully eating pastries, delicious pasta and fresh grilled fish, all in the good company of cold wine (or beer, either one is fine).
Yes, I’ll be at the beach. So make sure to follow on instagram!
Have a great weekend!
After a well spent day in between little towns, we headed to Nagoya.
Nagoya is big and very business-y like. One of the first things we saw when we go there was a lady laying on the floor and a few of her friends surrounding her. I got immediately worried, but figured the situation was completely under control — as in, calling an ambulance an such — turns out she was out drunk, and everyone was laughing and behaving as if that was completely normal! Turns out, it is…
We would only be in Nagoya for a day, to visit the castle. We were incredibly tired, and we just wanted to get a good night sleep — the hotel we stayed in for the night before was decent, just on the verge of bad and we couldn’t really rest properly.
The castle is amazing! It reminded us a lot of Osaka’s castle, but of course this one was completely different in every detail inside and out. Golden carps were everywhere and there was a reenacting of ancient times, with samurais strolling around and old shops all over.
Nagoya castle up ahead!
