In October, Ilene and Norm joined with 22 other University of Michigan alums and friends on a 12-day tour of the highlights of Japan. One highlight of a tour filled with many highlights was viewing the Golden Temple, with exterior walls covered with gold leaf. The tour group traveled from Tokyo to Kyoto, seeing incredible temples, shrines, and gardens. However, Ilene felt the best part of the trip was the food, and now that we are home we are now adding Japanese cooking to our everyday menu.
We thought it would be fun to share this map showing some of the places where we have traveled and stayed for at least a few days. We like to explore new areas each time we leave home.
I think we may have missed one or two, but ran out of room. We also have a few in mind to be added in the near future, so this will be updated in the future.
