Today was a fun filled day! We started our last full day off with a 3.75 mike walk through Seaside and Watercolor. Then we ventured out for a 7+ mike bike ride though the trails where we found this overlook. We ended the day by spending quality time with family on the beach until almost dark. Days like today are so needed. We all need time to recharge and relax. We head back to Chattanooga tomorrow and I’m wishing that we were here for another week.
Amazing weekend at #Whistler filming @womenwhoexplore documentary!
I hope you’re having a safe and fun weekend and that you’ll watch our documentary when it’s ready!
Will you, will you, will you???
/ Asakusa / was sure I'd hate how busy Asakusa would be but it was actually super fun and if you turned down the back streets it was quiet and beautiful. I walked down one street to find a lady washing live turtles and she let me wash one too, probably one of the more bizarre experiences I've had in Japan 🐢

When you REALLY think about our existence we are tiny mammals, on a rock ball, that is the only inhabitable planet we know of, placed on the outskirts of one of the smaller galaxies in our universe, and we are floating through space just simply existing. This explanation seems to reduce us to nothing or something insignificant, but the more I think about it the more I get this weird feeling about our existence. The feeling of awe and wonder of how it all came to be and why it is we are here. .
Existence.... the fact that we are even here and conscious of it all, is quite weird and yet absolutely fascinating. Not only that but the infinite amount of possibilities that had to happen for YOU to even be alive right now... if one thing in history happened differently the YOU that you are experiencing wouldn’t be here right now. If that doesn’t make you think that you are MEANT to be here now I don’t know what will. .
/ Fuji / it took me around forty minutes to get from the 5th station to 6th station when it then started raining. It took five hours to get the 8th station. When I reached station 8 it was pouring rain, we had thunder and lightning. In the rain it took around four more hours to get from station 8 to the peak and then I bolted back down. It was freezing and wet but I can now say I climbed Mount Fuji, and I'll never climb it again. That was absolute torture, and I didn't even get a sunrise 😐
