Trip date: June 24 – July 10, 2016
Part 1 of 3 will cover our first destination in Japan – Yakushima Island. We spent four days here.
Alas, Nicholai and I went hiking in the Laguna Beach area a few weeks ago. I originally thought we would have to hike to a high point called Top of the World, but you actually drive to this point and then branch out on different trails. It’s pretty much the highest point in the area, and many gather here to watch the sunset, which we did. Top of the World showed a wide view of the ocean in between the hills. Although the trails weren’t as impressive as I thought they would be, I still appreciated the sunset view on the ocean horizon at the top.
