Japanese Countryside and Temple visits.

We visited the town of Nara – near Kyoto- on the way to an amazing country villa but more about that later. We visited Fushimi Inari, a shrine famous for it’s 10,000 gates. When one makes a donation, their name is inscribed on one of the gates. Stunning!

Seabourn Odyssey

Seabourn Odyssey -Cruise heaven!
Where do I start? Food, Spa and Dr Andrew Weil wellness focus, elegant, attentive service, large suite sizes, and great off ship excursions are all top notch. I could go on and on, and on. There are some great cruise lines out there, but Seabourn has the edge.
