Pictures from Family Trip 1: Japan – Tokyo & Osaka

This summer in June I went on a family trip to Asia for 10 days. I spent two days in Tokyo, one day in Osaka, and part of one evening in Kobe for a Kobe Beef dinner. Kobe beef is orgasmic to eat. Unfortunately, I did not remember to take pictures of the Kobe beef. For your mental imagery, I’ll say it is prepared similar to Habachi.

  2. My family trips were mommy trips. I hated them. Would need to wait for my mother needing to take a piss, or eat, or drink, or walk slow, or be tired, or be annoyed, or be afraid. The only trips I ever enjoyed were with my das. They were few and I miss them.

What do you think about that?
