Dear reader,

We got a lot of rainy days lately, but still I ventured for several excursions into the mountains. Being enclosed in an office normally, the pure mountain air is a welcome change!

Every time I immerse myself in the Alps, I think of my preparations for “Hiking through Japan”, because this is exactly what I did in order to prepare myself then three years ago: On weekends, I would test my tent and equipment on a mountain excursion.

On the 1st August three years ago, I was starting out from Capy Soya in Hokkaido. The third anniversary of this day, which is coinciding with the Swiss National Day, I celebrated together with my family. I still think very fondly of my walking tour through Japan and all those very pleasant people I met along the way, for whom I would be doing my best.

My company „japan-ferien GmbH“ has a lot of new ideas to work through, and we are looking forward to the upcoming autumn season. Also, for the 5th October I am planning to run a marathon again after a five year’s break, and this is something I will be enjoying very much, too.

Now have a good time, to all of you, and I am hoping to see you again next month, best wishes,

Thomas
