Amazake at Amazake Chaya, an ancient tea house, operating for more than 350 years along the old Tokaido Road where samurais stopped to recharge from their way to Edo from the (old) capital in Kyoto. Amazake Chaya is the last remaining of such a tea house left with the current owner serving weary travellers for 13 generations. 13 generations! . . Amazake is made from fermented rice used to make sake. Non-alcoholic and sweet, it warms the belly as well as one's spirits, especially after a long trek. . . #amazake #amazakechaya #hakone #japan #sharingourtravelstories #japantravel #jrailpass #oldtokaidoroad #samurai #edo #historicalmoment #history #foodie #sake #Fujifilm #food #foodstagram #alcohol #tradition #culture #culinary

Memories of day 3 of our trek to Machu Picchu 10 years ago. This was the toughest part of the trek. โ€˜Dead womanโ€™s passโ€™ known as the toughest point as its 13,828ft which is the highest point of the Inca Trail and 5905 ft higher than the altitude of Machu Picchu itself. I thought I was quite fit running my first half marathon 4 weeks before but this was tough!! ๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ”๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ—ป๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿž๐Ÿšถ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธโ›ฐ #machupicchu #incatrail #incatrailtrek #memories #roundtheworldtravel #travelmemories #sharingourtravelstories #sharingtraveltips #rtw #rtw2008 #peru #deadwomanspass #rawlinsonrtw2008๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง๐ŸŒ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ช

Fish Amok, Phnom Penh, Cambodia. Wikipedia: In South-East Asian cuisine, "mok", "amok" or "ho mok" refers to the process of steam cooking a curry in banana leaves, or to the resulting dish.

Ravaged by time, Ta Prohm was colonised by nature. The giant roots appear to be consuming the ancient temple over many centuries โ€“ one canโ€™t help but feels that a lost world has been encountered, especially with the complex root systems binding the temple ruins into place. .

Japan can be cheap. Really. For starters, try staying in a hostel - most of them are clean, fairly well-equipped and communal. . . #budgettravel #budgettraveller #japan #japanese #hostel #hostellife #hostelworld #sharingourtravelstories #travel #traveljapan #travelling #travelblogger #travelholic #trip #roadtrip #globetrotter #discovertheworld #travelonabudget
