After our quick trip to Kyoto, we hopped on a train and journeyed to our next destination - Osaka!
If you want some ideas on what to see  if you only have 24 hours in Osaka, then keep on reading.

MUST SEE SIGHTS IN KYOTO


A couple of weeks ago I got to visit two new places in Japan (one of my favourite countries) - Kyoto and Osaka.
We weren't in either city for very long, but I  tried to see as much as I could in the time that I had, so let me tell you about the places I saw in Kyoto...

Thank you 2016!


...and just like that 2016 was over.

Ok, so it wasn't just like that. It was over in 12 months. The usual amount of time in a year.
From a personal point of view, 2016 was not too shabby. I was lucky enough to travel to a few places, as well as sneak in a few extra trips to the Philippines to visit family.

I would say I clocked up more air miles this year than any other year of my adult life.

Anniversary Adventures

Anniversary Adventures by Hello Jesso
Seven years ago at the Haymarket Hotel
This past weekend was my seven year wedding anniversary. I can't believe how fast time has flown on this incredible journey.

I  wanted to share with you what we did to celebrate - don't worry it's nothing soppy and there's no PDA - so without further ado, here are my four-anniversary essentials...


ONE - The husband.
This is pretty self-explanatory.

TWO - Room with a view.
In the words of Tom Haverford and Donna Meagle from Parks and Recreation "treat yo self". Sometimes we treat ourselves to a trip away, but this year we had a little staycation at The Upper House.

THREE - Adventure
Go somewhere you've never been. Do something you want to do. Make a brand new memory.
We ventured out to the end of the West Rail line into the New Territories to Tin Shui Wai. We didn't know what was there, but we figured as we had never been why not go and find out.

FOUR - Sunset
Once we got to Tin Shui Wai, we got in a distinct green New Territories taxi and headed to Lau Fau Shan - a small fishing village. On the other side of the water was China. You could see Shenzhen from where we were standing! The beach was covered in what looked like oyster shells and that's where we watched sunset. Sunset and oysters, that's romantic, right?

FRIENDSTAGRAM: Meet My Friends

Meet My Friends (I met them on Instagram) by HelloJesso

Last year I wrote a post about my family on Instagram. Well, here's a post about my friends that I met via Instagram.

People always told me to be wary of meeting people on the internet, but I have met some of the nicest people on Instagram.

When I lived in London there is no way you would catch me meeting anybody from the internet. I mean, they could be all kinds of crazy! Plus, I already had my nearest and dearest friends that I had known for years and years. Why would I need new friends?

However, moving to a new country meant I had to be more open to new ways of meeting people. I met a few people through an expat forum, but the majority of my friends have come from Instagram.

Weekend Wanderings: Sunrise to Sunset by Hello Jesso
Before sunrise
Welcome to another installment of Weekend Wanderings. 

The last weekend wander was spent trying to hide from the heat of the sun in caves of Cape D'Aguilar. This weekend wander was purposefully spent chasing the sun.
