You know how when you boot up your pc there’ll be an image with little prompts before you log in? Well, yesterday when I was logging in at work I had a thought of: why not click the prompts and learn something new each day? (
Aside from just thumbing up or down for similar images.)
Then I figured I could do a little deep dive, jot down some facts and things I’d like to do there, so I can start keeping a list of travel ideas/a bucket list.
Now it won’t be everyday of course, just the places that catch my eye (
which will probably be most of them). Anyway, first up is the town of Kamishihoro, Japan!
A shy fairy of the sky and earth who pilots hot air balloons and loves to eat agricultural/livestock products of the town.
