Gardens by the Bay, Singapore

The Gardens by the Bay is one of my favorite places to visit in Singapore. Not only is it a sanctuary in the middle of a busy city but it also houses two domes which offer a cool escape from hot and humid Singapore. Here are my favorite pictures from last year’s trip. Enjoy! ❤

On a quest to fully maximize our JR pass, we decided to visit Nikko. Nikko is a city two hours by train north of Tokyo. It is where the famous Toshogu Shrine, a UNESCO World Heritage, can be found. It is also the best place to see some fall foliage in early October.

Japan 2017: Mt. Wakakusayama + Kasuga-Taisha, Nara

After seeing Nigatsu-do Hall, we planned on seeing Kasuga-Taisha next. Along the way, we got to see Mount Wakakusayama. It is a grass-covered mountain located behind Nara Park. We decided not to climb up the mountain but rather just enjoy it from afar.

Out of the eight, we picked three temples to visit along with a visit to Isuien Garden.
