We visited my family in Fukuoka this weekend.
We really enjoyed the nice weather in Dazaifu.

Ramen, thatched roof restaurant, and Itoshima
We had a Mother’s Day lunch with Grandma & Mom at a restaurant in the woods. My aunt took us all over the place from the east side to the west side of the city.

Leiden & Amsterdam
At the beginning of October, I went to WordCamp Europe (WCEU) in Leiden in the Netherlands. I spent one extra day in the country, exploring around Amsterdam. I really liked Dutch cityscape and people – would love to go back for a longer period next time.

Fukuoka, Ureshino (Saga), Nagasaki and Tokyo
After a short stay at home in Tokyo, I went to WordPress meetup in Fukuoka then spent some time with my family traveling in Kyushu. Quite interestingly, one of our family trip destinations was Huis Ten Bosch, a Dutch-themed park in Nagasaki prefecture. We celebrated my grandma’s birthday together and had a really good time together.
