My Voyage Around the World
50 years ago, my father set sail on the voyage of a lifetime. Four months ago, I followed in his footsteps and embarked on a journey sailing for 102 days across 4 continents. Since then I have learned the ins and outs of traveling in unknown territory and learning how to truly immerse yourself into a diverse culture.
I arrived in Kobe in the middle of their winter, so it made it difficult to see everything I wanted to. However, transportation in Japan is the most efficient in the world. We bought a rail pass for one of the fastest trains in the world for $300 USD that would take us anywhere and everywhere for 7 days. First, I headed to Kyoto, the old capital of Japan. It was very cultured with temples everywhere, including the large golden temple, monkey parks, and bamboo forests
