    Visiting four destinations in a day to get that all important photo moment was a bit wasted on me. Seeing the world isn’t about ticking things off a list or adding to an expanding photo album, it’s about new experiences, enjoying the moment and taking it all in. My trip to Hiroshima and Miyajima was quite an adventure to say the least.

    I was nervous about my first couchsurfing experience as I got off the cargo ship from Osaka port. I was staying with 63 year old Japanese retiree, Taka. Taka and I spent a long first day together in Ehime. We visited rabbit island, local shrines, Imabari castle and cycled some of the Shimanami Kaido cycle route. A lot happened that day!
