16 Apr

Back in rainy Italy and happy to be home.  We’re all suffering from some pretty serious jet-lag though (everyone up and ready for breakfast at 3:30am).

We spent the day unpacking, sorting through our Japanese souvenirs, doing laundry and talking a lot about our Japan adventures.

After two weeks of delicious Japanese food we had a typical Italian lunch of mozzarella and tomato salad, prosciutto, assorted cheeses and bread.  It was delicious.

It’s always great to travel and see the world but it’s also great to come back home.

      Hi Greta, I’m so glad to hear you enjoyed the Japan posts. It was really an amazing trip. And so kid friendly! I would definitely suggest taking your family one day (maybe when your little guy is a bit older). Greetings from a rainy Italy, J

      Just wait until your little guy dresses up like a ninja Kat. I have to admit that I kinda like the play sword fights that we have. And I ain’t that bad if I do say so myself…

    Oh, that picture of your lunch looks so yummy – I want to dive in and gobble it up! I agree, it’s so wonderful to travel, and so wonderful to come back home to what is familiar. Thanks so much for sharing your trip!

      It was very tasty. And the basil came from my garden which made it that much tastier! Glad you enjoyed our trip as well!

    Welkom terug in Italie.We hebben genoten van uwe commentaren en mooie fotos van Japan.
    Dit is zeker een fantastische ervaring voor de kinderen en Eva en Chloe waren zeer mooi in hun kimono kleding.Wij zijn zelf nooit in Japan geweest maar hebben wel uitwisseling gedaan met Michiel en Beatrijs met 2 japanse meisjes gedurende 3weken en die hadden een buitengewone fijne opvoeding.
    Jill gij maakt zeer mooie fotos en de kinderen volgen.
    Groetjes Oma en Opa
