I looked slightly different... We were in Kyoto and paid a visit to AYA Geisha & Maiko experience where I finally got to try a real kimono on and was made up like a Maiko (trainee geisha).

After months of horrifically painful headaches I finally sat down with the doctor, and after being examined he has concluded that I am stressed.

I am still trying to get my head around this, because for the first time… Continue reading So, I did not see that coming
Part of me wants to write A LOT about my recent journey to Japan and how much it has changed how I have been looking at my life, but my house remains a bombsite since my mother's diagnosis and passing.
