The past two weeks I had the opportunity to travel around Japan and attend my childhood friend's wedding there. Beforehand I had never been further East than Turkey so the whole experience felt entirely new  to me, it was like being in a world that is somehow similar to mine yet entirely different.
Japan is an amazing country, and what I loved especially was getting the chance to appreciate the diversity it offers...from the huge modern cities full of lights and people to the quiet and peaceful temples hidden in luscious forests, from the incredible contemporary art museums to the old town centers with wooden houses and narrow roads, from foggy mountain tops to beaches full of highschool kids in uniforms.
There was something about Japan (and probably being on vacation helped as well) that calmed my spirit, and I really hope I can maintain this state of mind as long as possible as I move on into my daily life.
Here are a few pictures from the trip...
