Family holidays
It must be good to look at these photos and reflect on how special it must have been that your parents would take the family to see other countries and cultures...opening your eyes that it is indeed a large diverse World out there. I guess it planted the seed for your own travel obsession Per-Olof. And it looks as if you had pretty cool parents...though I wonder if you realised that at the time!

Family holidays
Aye, me and my parents have always had a close bond and they did indeed impart the love of travelling in. =)

Love your story...
but sad in a way because this was your last trip with your family. The last of anything is sad.

Love your story...
It is sad in a way yes, but who knows, perhaps we'll travel abroad together once more. =)

Goa
Goa Historical City Center is on our list of places we want to visit. Have you heard of the Indian stairewells? Next time I go to India I will plan to include a few of those. Many of them are quite spectacular, and very much a hidden gem as well. /Ake

It's very much recommended. I have missed the stairwells though.

When bringing back memories of past trips it is great when a quirky detail brings a smile. I reckon seeing the photo of this sign outside the High Court in Goa would have brought back such a memory. I am posting this in the Signs, Signs & more Signs thread in the Photography Forum.

Haha, yeah it still brings a smile to my face when I see it because it just felt so weird and logical for the place at the same time. =)

India - a complicated relationship
I have a complicated relationship with India. I love India but only in small doses. No more than two weeks in one go. After that I need an antidote to all tne noise all all the people that are everywhere. /Ake

Impressive Research
I’m constantly impressed by the level of research you undertake. Well done. I absolutely loved Koyasan and I’ll gladly go back. I might even be tempted to do the pilgrimage!

Thank you! =) I enjoyed reading about your experiences at Koyasan and it was a big reason that I decided to go there. =)

You’re Hardcore!
Per-Olof, you’re one hardcore dude. Two mountains in quick succession?!? I’m glad you at least got a bit of sunrise. I got absolutely none when I climbed Mt Fuji in 2010. I, too, did an overnight climb.

You’re Hardcore!
Thanks man! Aye, it might have been brief, but it was much welcome after that arduous climb. Aye, I remember that you had really rough luck with yours.

Weather, people and food...
...three things that can make or break a walking holiday for me :) Glad to hear you gave yourself a slower day to recuperate. I'm intrigued by the ryokans, and will definitely be trying to stay in as many as we can when we eventually make it to Japan. What does a typical ryokan breakfast include?

Weather, people and food..
It was a much needed break. =) Breakfast at a ryokan is usually quite comprehensive, lots of different dishes, many of them seasonal in nature. =)

Clear Day
Yay! Glad to read that the typhoon finally ended, and that you had some good weather on your day off rest, my friend. I hope all your things continued to dry out nicely.

Thank you!
It was indeed very welcome with some good weather by this point. ☺

It is places or scenes like this that capture my imagination and make travel so rewarding.

This is a cicada. We always know when summer is coming or has arrived in Oz when the cicadas start drumming.

Ah, so that's what the look like, I hear them a lot in Japan but I've never actually seen one. I think there are seven or eight different species in Japan. =)
