Our Japan trip is coming up really really soon, you guys!! Niles and I were researching little day trips out of Tokyo and I came across a little town called “Zushi” and got really excited… until I realized that no, of course it is not a town made out of sushi, it’s not even a town known for its sushi stalls or restaurants, it’s just a small fishing town with a really nice bay for windsurfing. Oh well. Niles’s brother Sam has graciously promised me a sushi tour of Tokyo, so it’s not like I won’t be eating my fill on this trip, even if magical towns made out of sushi don’t actually exist.

I still can’t believe we’re doing this. It doesn’t feel real yet! And of course it’s so much money, but we’ve been really frugal to offset the costs. I can’t wait!
