Catching swarms, Camping out!

Golden Week 2018 consisted of me camping out, catching swarms and playing with my tello. Overall and great golden week


favourite lunch-box

This is one of my favourite lunch-box spots on Awaji. On a nice day you can see from south Osaka all the way down to Wakayama with Narugashima Island smack bang in front of you .

Leaf hunting

紅葉狩り Momijigari To go to in search of autumn leaves.

紅葉 Momiji Red leaves

狩り Kari to hunt

I have said before autumn is undoubtedly my most favorite time of the year in Japan.  However I find taking photos of the Autumn colours totally boring with the photos all ended up looking the same. Maybe I need to go on a photo-walk with someone with new eyes so I can see the difference.


The Vandel


I purchased the Vandel backpack the first month they came out and It has stood up to hell and still is looking amazing. The only thing I don’t like about it is that it is made to strong and want to buy a new one one day.

Hitting the bonk

Hitting the wall or hitting the bonk for some reason or another is pronounced “hanger knock” in Japanese.

I generally only find myself hitting the wall during autumn, I don’t know why? maybe it’s the cool Awaji Island winds that zap my energy, or maybe it was just the lack of sleep the night before, Anyway after the meager 30 kilometres I hit the wall and I hard it hard. Luckily the route was take is jampacked with convenience stores which stock hundreds of sugary delights from which I called on “lifeguard” to get me over the wall.
