FOOL YOU., THERE'S NO PLACE LIKE HOME,
BUT TRAVELING IS FUN.
Today, although being British by birth, my naturalised American self got to celebrate this holiday of Independence in the Town that I have called home for the last 16 years. The wonderful Town of Leesburg, in Loudoun County Virginia, is a lovely place to be. To celebrate with a parade is a quintessential and integral part of life here, as I am sure it is also in many Towns and of course Cities throughout America on this special day in their history. A reminder too I think of how far we have come, and that if we really try we can work together. At least that is my hope.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY AMERICA!!

Joining my husband whilst he attended a business conference in Tokyo, led to an opportunity to join a group of women (who were also there with their better halves), on a day trip out of the City. For those looking to take a day trip out of Tokyo, the town of Kamakura is a good option. Taking the train is pretty easy, the journey time was around an hour and a half on the train from Roppongi Hills.
I have lost count of the times I have transited through Narita Airport over the last five years, the best route for the journey between Leesburg VA and Singapore. This past May however, was the first time I actually got to go into the city of Tokyo and get my first real experience of Japan.
