Mount Okamado 御竈門山 – Minamiaso, Japan

This was a seriously thrifty trip. Hubby and I stayed at a guesthouse (more like a local home). The key expense was transport *LOL*. Surrounded by beautiful rice paddy and various farms. So shopping / convenient store was nowhere to be seen. Just sheer natural beauty. This was 1 hour train away from the bustling Kumamoto. Surreal how the scenery changed completely. The region was called Minami-Aso (South Aso); the precise station that we were heading to was Choyo.

Skagen (The Scaw) – Denmark

Beautiful town – beach, great seafood and flat landscape perfect for bicycle ride. Skagen, Northern tip of Denmark. This was a day trip from Goteborg. Hopped onto the Stena line – Goteborg to Fredrikshamn (3hr 15min ).   Stena line was a large ferry with entertainment, restaurant, bar, souvenir shop and tax free booze. Swedish Government had monopoly over alcohol (Systembolaget), so needless to say, booze was expensive. Stena line was THE solution to cheap booze for any Swede. **I found some children playing the slots machine… It was apparently quite acceptable. I was flabbergasted by the sight. I am legally not allowed to publish the child’s photo, but I swear I was stunned.
