I turned 31 last week, and I happened to be celebrating it on the road, as a driver! 🙂
Some of my husband’s office colleagues and I actually arranged a trip to Yamanashi area, for the autumn foliage, on the day before my birthday. But the weather forecast said it’s gonna be raining that day and of course we don’t want to ruin the joy, so we postponed the drive to be exactly on the day of my birthday.
Since no one else in the group can drive, except me, I had to bear with a total of almost 8 hours driving for the return trip! The traffic is quite crazy here in Japan during weekend! But hey, I got to celebrate the special day with family and friends, with an awesome view of Mt. Fuji, the beautiful momiji tunnel and the overwhelming colorful mountains at Shosenkyo Gorge. Plus, I got a bonus of delicious cheesecake, cut with a chopstick, inside the car, at one of the service area of the highway! 🙂
It was for sure a memorable (and tiring) birthday celebration! 🙂
