    The Biwa Lake: the biggest lake in Japan

    The Biwa Lake: the runaway from evil Japanese summer Here I am, back in Japan after nice vacations in the South of France next to a swimming pool or Pont du Gard.

    Expedition Happiness

    This pursuit of happiness changed their life. Happiness is a way of travel, not a destination – Roy M.
