It’s so crazy! I’ve recently had a vacation in Japan with my family. We were on a tour (it’s a common thing to do for travellers in my hometown). I don’t normally go on tours, preferring to just get lost and explore myself. It was a family vacation though so I went along.

The trip was great but there were so many missed opportunities! We went to a couple of museums for ‘photostops’. Basically, you’re just there to take photos. No going in, no exploring, no learning whatsoever. Though we explored quite a lot, a few occasions where it was just for photostops were quite disappointing.

Thank you so much for reading and responding, love! I really appreciate it! ❤
