Japan – Miyajima

We went to Japan in October 2010 for our honeymoon. Miyajima is a little island off the coast of Hiroshima. We travelled there by ferry and explored around whilst trying to avoid the hungry (greedy?) deer roaming the island. Admittedly they were much more tame than the ones in Nara. See out other photos here Tokyo Kyoto Nara Kobe Hiroshima.

Beautiful Sky

It’s often hard in winter to see sunlight because it’s dark when I start in the morning and usually dark when I leave work. It’s then too cold or wet to go out at lunch. It also doesn’t help that I work in the basement. I hate the days when I start extra early to do QA because I’m a terrible morning person, but leaving earlier with this sky makes it worth waking up at 5:30.
