Okinawa - Highlight

Despite the worries I had leaving right after my horrible accident, my mini holiday in Okinawa turned out to be a fabulous one! My knee is all well and I could even walk around in the bush and run around the markets without feeling any pain but only joy. The only time it bothered me was when I had to sit on tatami floor at a little gorgeous restaurant one night, but that wasn't so bad anyway.

I was incredibly lucky to have my lovely dear friend C to travel with who showed me all the wonderful places she had been in her previous visits to Okinawa. This trip was about endless food-eating, photo-taking, pottery-shopping and lots of laughing, and it was such a delightful trip.

Random photos from Yomitan area.
More to follow.


P.S. Thank you again and again for all your thoughtful comments after my bike accident, but I am very well now!! Arigatou & Happy weekend to you all ;)

  1. Ah I am so excited to see your pictures and hear your report, I have always wanted to visit there. On my next trip over I am to probably visit Hokkaidō but I keep dreaming that perhaps I can visit Okinawa also (even though it could not be further apart!). I am glad that you had a good time. So would you recommend it as a good place to visit? Is it worth going that distance? :)

  4. Alice - The answer to your question "Is it worth going that distance?" would definitely be "YES!!". I haven't been to Hokkaido so I can't really compare it to Okinawa, but it was so much nicer than I expected and there's so much to see and enjoy. Especially if you have already seen quite a bit of Japan then you'd be able to Okinawa to feel the great difference and the unique ambiance they have!!!

    melindatrees & Elisabelle - it was really lovely! i've got lots more to share, so many photos that i don't know where and how to continue!
