J16 #01: Ueno, Shinjuku and Chihayafuru

To quickly continue where I left of last time, I looked for and found my Airbnb near the market Ameyoko. The small flat is located in the 8th floor and contained the basic amenities. Just depositing my luggage and picking up my rental WiFi router I went on to explore the neighborhood.

Milano

Milano

Der Sommer neigt sich dem Ende zu, alle Prüfungen sind abgelegt und es winken die verdienten zwei Wochen Ferien vor Beginn des nächsten Semesters. Ich entschied mich nochmal das schöne Mailand im Norden Italiens zu besuchen, da es gut aus der Schweiz zu erreichen und wegen der Expo besonders besuchenswert ist.

Expo Milano 2015

Expo Milano 2015

From one Expo to the next. Just two weeks ago I visited the Japan Expo in Paris for the third time. Now, me and friends went to Italy to take a peek at the World Expo in Milan.

Visiting the Expo was vaguely planned for quite some time now, but just recently a concrete day came into sight when a friend of mine suggested that we should go and see the Japan day in mid July. In fact, every participating country has one day for presenting itself on the whole venue area. This would include special events and guests. So we decided, to visit the Expo on that specific Saturday.

Prag

Prag

Nach Ostern hatte ich eine Woche Urlaub, die ich für eine kleine Reise innerhalb Europas nutzen wollte. Nach einiger Überlegung entschlossen sich Miriam und ich schliesslich für die tschechische Hauptstadt Prag. Ganze drei Tage verbrachten wir zusammen in dieser geschichtsträchtigen Stadt.
