4th Of July

Every 4th of July I end up with this kind of eeire feeling that half of the summer is gone already, and I think this song by Aimee Mann describes my mood. I have so many thing to fix in the next couple of weeks it is almost making me dizzy. And excited. And a bit nauseous, all at once.

I had a wonderful weekend, we went down to an Onsen in Izu / Shimoda (pictures to follow!) , had an amazing Japanese-style traditional dinner, (really gorgeous food, but a bit freaky when they put things that are still alive on the grill), and not to mention the private onsen on the balcony! I basically spent Saturday evening in the little pool on our balcony after dinner, and the water makes your skin silky smooth! I got up really early yesterday morning, took another dip in the onsen, before I had to head back to Tokyo (about 4 hours away) to take my JLPT test. I have no idea how the test went, parts of it went wonderful and other parts were well, not so wonderful. I am just glad it is done.

Now I am well planted at home again, I’ve caught a cold, and I am trying to shake it of so I can update my blog and do all the housework which is waiting for me. Hope you all had a wonderful weekend.

  1. Onsen. On. The balcony? I think envy is a fitting word here, haha. Sounds amazing!

      It sounds so braggy, but all I can say is that it was super-nice, and I absolutely loved getting away to the hotel, even if I could only stay there for about 12 hours until I had to go back to Tokyo. It was absolutely wonderful, I am glad I went :)

    Å, det høres fantastisk deilig ut! Tenk det, onsen på balkongen!

    Jeg har hatt en fantastisk helg og uke i Danmark – jeg må nesten få skrevet et eget innlegg om det. ^^
