Summer’s End

YB with lake nojiri

so i’m back.  hello!

as anticipated, i had a great time away.  after all was said and done, i had driven approximately 1230km in a little over three weeks, which is about the same distance i drove in about four months from the time i got my bike about this time last year.  looking at it that way, it seems like a whole lot.

for whatever reason, soft serve ice cream– especially special regional flavors– seems to be a popular snack among touring motorcyclists, so i had to do my modest share of taste testing.  of the seven different ones i ate during the trip, my favorite was a milk and coffee twist at michino-eki (roadside rest area), shimonita.  a must-try, if you are in the area.

i’m a bit wistful that it’s all over, but am refreshed and ready to start stitching again.  but first while i do some catching up on odds and ends, i’ll be sharing some photos from the trip over the new few posts.

先日実家から戻りました。
お久しぶりです。

田舎に滞在中、思う存分と言っても良いほどバイクで冒険してきました。ここ三週間ちょっとの間に走った距離は約1230km。それはバイクの納車から四ヶ月かかって走った距離とほぼ同じだと今になって気付きました。そんなに走ったんだ!と自分でもちょっとびっくり。我がバイク、お疲れさま。

そしてツーリングのおやつに人気のソフトクリーム。この期間に七個も平らげてしまいました。毎回その地域の味を選ぶことにしていますが、今回の旅で一番美味しかったのは道の駅下仁田の神津牧場ソフトクリーム、コーヒーとミルクのミックス。近くを通るときはここへの寄り道をおすすめします♪

楽しかった分、夏の終わりは少し寂しい気分になります。毎年のことだけどね。でもリフレッシュが出来たので、秋に向かってやる気もじわじわ湧いてきます。まずはあれこれ片づけてから。その間ブログは旅の日記になりそうです。
