So proud of this ski package, on stands now inside @businessweek - it's got all the info you need on where to ski this year, plus some really smart reads on how snow farming might save the Alpine ski industry and why Ja-pow is turning Hokkaido into winter sports Nirvana. All online this week if you can't find a copy!
Thank you guys so much for the incredible outpouring of support. Receiving news like this can be incredibly isolating, but #rileythebearcub , @c.ekstein and I have felt so fully embraced by so your kind words and good vibes, and we couldn't be more grateful. It means the world. We're so lucky for the way this little bear keeps making us laugh day after day. She really is the best. 💕
Today my very worst nightmare became reality: my beautiful little bear cub was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. My heart is in bits and pieces. But we're all fighters in this house, not least Riley. Please keep her, and us, in your thoughts--we need lots of little miracles but we're going to get through this together. 🙏
Without a shadow of a doubt, the very best thing about this trip has been sharing it with my favorite person. We don't get to do this together often enough, and when we do, every day is the biggest blessing. 💕
Onsen + 🌅 + ⛩️ = heaven. Pro tip: if the onsen is too crowded when you arrive, wait until 6 and try again. Locals eat dinner early and clear out, leaving you to enjoy sunset views in full, glorious privacy.
Miyajima is kind of a tourist trap. But it's the prettiest, most photogenic tourist trap. And a lovely overnight if you need one slow-going day in the middle of a long, fast-paced trip. Also, it's home to oysters the size of my face.
More Kurashiki magic, coming right up. ✨(PS. This place isn't just a pretty face. It's also the home of Japanese denim production which makes it very, very cool. Also, our awesome ryokan is just out of view, to the left. Go here now.)
