Hiking the Inca trail

Travel

To be honest, hiking the Inca Trail was the one part of my recent trip to South America that I was absolutely dreading. Up until about 3 weeks before we left I hadn’t done a lot of preparation or a lot of exercise in general (I did hike Mt Warning once…in September). However, as it turns out none of that really matters!

Soft serves in Tokyo

Food, Travel

When most people think of soft serve, McDonald’s comes to mind. But trust me – you have not had soft serve until you’ve been to Japan. Aptly shortened to “soft cream”, you can find these dairy-licious treats in all of the major cities. Even the McDonald’s soft serve cones are approx 10 cm high (at least 5 and half swirls), putting our 2 and a half swirls to shame.
