Spain part deux

Over the summer I went in my first euro trip and it was super awesome! I liked it so much I came back for more. 

When I arrived I was greeted with this awesome view 
Yes mallorca, you are spectacular!!

First day of climbing in this new sector. It was of course beautiful, but I didn't climb very well... I think I was jetlaggy and delirious, but fun fun anyway!!

Look what we found!
Come out of your house and play with me! 
Ok I'll leave you alone now 
Mallorca, fucking spectacular views!!!
My gracious host <3
There goes Carlos on some crazy hard climb 
Just another walk in the park
Documenting how jacked up my legs get after this trip
It's like this errywhere!

Well can't climb very well so let's just take a walk to the beach
My dream house! Ocean views, cozy, perfect!
The hunter found me some cute sea shells. Too bad they were occupied. They ran away from my stash 

This was my sweet house! Eeeeek! 

Next day, feeling strong and perfect weather, time for some hardcore psicobloc! Cala varques never ceases to amaze me 
Look at how the perfect this is!!!
Uggggggh!!!! I can't stop crying on the inside

This is the other cave that we didn't try in the summer. More people climbing this time around. 
So beautiful
There's my awesome host being bad ass and mas fuerte!
And by the way, it's like a 20ft or more drop!
Yep, legs getting jacked up like I thought

This is my every morning breakfast! Ohhhh happy belly
Mallorcas famous arch. So beautiful 
And of course, just some goats hanging out
Mallorca is so beautiful. I'll update again later.

More food!

All day, everyday. Eat eat eat!!!! I'm getting slow all around with this blogging thing, to much to do and so little time 

Here are some fun foods from my traveling days

Some more of Shinos mamas home cooking. So good
We had a belated birthday party for takeda dad. I think he was happy

Back home at the market, I got my own tomato brand! Whoot!
Some baller ketchup! $8 a jar!

Some food samplings. Tofu burger, chicken stew, okra with bonito, vinegar pickled spring veggies and a bucket of rice with miso soup

Local sea food goodies. Salt boiled snails

Nyc clans sayonara party feast

Kochi red cow? 高知赤牛
That's what it translates to. Curry rice and tofu pumpkin and steamed watercress. Mmmm
$5 mangos! So crazy
Poppin' champagne! Grilled yellowtail, bamboo shoots with miso Yuzu sesame paste. Fiddlehead with eggs, sautéed spring veggies, and some itadori

So I kindda realized I have no dessert pics. I guess I get too excited and I forget. Well my one pack will prove all that I have consumed 

Almost time to go home :( I'll post a super blog of culture time next

More island hopping

So more island hopping time! Of to Fukuoka, land of the hakata ramen. I got on this super small propeller plane which I was super uber nervous about getting on, but since I had my posse, I felt like nothing can go wrong
Me and my homies ballin out with a mini plane

Fukuoka in all it's glory! The plane looks super battered

We all made it! Now let's get our grub on!

Shinos mom made my favorite crab cream croquette!! 

Check out Shino mama home cooking

This is the man cover in shinos home town, these are super fun to find 

Next day we took a day trip down to Kumamoto 
Shinkansen time!
We checked out the Kumamoto castle. This is a replica they made about 40 years ago so it wasn't as glorious as most castles are. 
V0 slabby wall! Why can't I climb this?? I have ninja blood running through my veins!
Look at these tourists!
This was one of the cool rooms they replicated. It was bright gold and awesome!
Check out the ceiling!
Hi jee! Nice hat!
Our gracious host! Mr maeda
Checked out his studio. Nice colors!

Off to the bar. Check out this bottle keeps
Let's eat!
Ok no one get mad again, this is basashi aka horse sashimi

Ok time to go home. My jeans used to be baggy... What happened?!
