Going up

Jul 21, 2018 | ExplorAsia

Today we were aloud to sleep in a little, since we had to wake up at eight o’clock for a change. After a nice breakfast in the Hostel, everyone packed there bags, since there was another day of travelling waiting for us! But first we went to the Umeda Sky Building. This journey was not as easy as we thought… Packed with liters water, caps, sunblock and umbrellas we walked through the heat. It felt like we were walking against a big blow dryer. But, eventually we made it and reached the top of the tower! The views were again very rewarding. You could see the mountains, high building, airport & even some windsurfers! When everyone had taken there beautiful selfies with this view we continued our journey to Nara. Of course this was not ‘zonder slag of stoot’. We were all struggling with our 20kg suitcases to catch the trains on time. Mainly taking escalators with such a huge bag turned out to be quite an experience. The last transfer however turned out to be a surprising one. To get up the mountain a cable cart was taken! Traveling with a view again. The last hike of the day let us to a pretty temple in an even prettier landscape. Here an amazing Japanese meal was waiting for us. After a nice bath it was time to lay down on our surprisingly comfortable straw beds and go to sleep.
