Traveling and my Stash to Stash report

Hi all, I have no photos this month, I have been traveling.  At the moment I am in Tokyo,Japan.

Before I left on my travels, I did buy a piece of linen, the cost was $22.  I have no idea where I stand with my account, but will check once I get home mid April.

This trip was a once in a lifetime event mainly for my daughter who has a friend that moved to Tokyo and has wanted to visit her for several years now.  We were able to do this trip because a dear friend of mine had passes away and left both DD Lindsay and I some money.  So after paying off bill and a car payment and putting some in savings, we made our plans. Our first stop was a few days in Hawaii, this really helped with the time changes and jet lag.  We totally loved Hawaii, went to a luau, visited Pearl Harbour and took an Eco tour around the island of Oahu.

Tokyo is amazingly so cosmopolitan, clean, busy and the food is amazing.  We have eaten at a noodle shop, a rice bowl shop, had Pizza Hut pizza, which is nothing like what we get at home - one topping was Korean beef and the other pizza topping was meat with pesto. Quite a change from what we know as pizza toppings.

Tomorrow we will head to Kyoto to visit some of the temples and gardens, we also have scheduled a time for a Tea Ceremony.

Well off to get ready for a bit of a tour of Tokyo. We will return to the states on April 9th staying with my son for a few days in San Francisco, then back home to Macon, Georgia on the 13th.

As always thank you for stopping by - if I can figure out how to get photos from my camera to my iPad I will post them.
