It’s that time of year where I’m starting to long for Spring. I can’t wait for the messy, slushy snowbanks to disappear and to pack away my down parka and boots in exchange for spring jackets and ballet flats. So this Spring-longing got me thinking back to my trip to San Francisco in April 2011 and one of the most iconic images of San Francisco, the cable car. While slower and more expensive than regular transit, they are definitely worth the ride at least once.

While visiting the Meiji Shrine in Tokyo, Japan I was lucky enough to stumble upon the solemn procession of a traditional Shinto wedding.

They then conclude with another solemn procession.
Happy Valentine’s Day! And do I have a post for you…but first…you may want to hold off on reading this post until you’re somewhere not so public lest you shock your co-worker or that little old lady on the bus. Love Land on Jeju Island is South Korea’s first sexual theme park featuring over 140 sculptures that take a lighthearted look at sex. Come with a sense of humour and you won’t be disappointed.
