I woke up with a migraine on the day I set my mind traveling from Osaka to Nara (that was my 3rd day in Osaka). So, I did self head massage with the trusted Whiteflower (lol)… I slept for another few hours and push myself to go in spite of headache, tried to motivate myself and I’m convinced. That’s one thing I learned traveling solo, you often find yourself talking to self.
I left Hotel Mikado around 11AM, before I hop-on to the train going to Nara, I bought bread and coffee from Family Mart. Travel time tooks 30-40 minutes.
Again, I don’t know where to go… And my migraine is getting terrible. So I just walked and followed the crowd (this is one thing I’ve learned traveling in city you’ve never been before, follow the crowd and definitely you’ll get there). Since I don’t feel really feel well that time, I decided to I stop by for lunch. There’s a place in Nara where chain of restaurants are lined up. Sorry, I can’t remember the name of the place, but definitely you will passed by this place when you walked from train station to Nara Park.
Finally, I saw roaming deers in the park, so I guess, I arrived the famous Nara Park from my research.
So I’m done with temples, I think there’s more temples around, but I’m okay… I preferred sitting down in the park, enjoyed the nature, watched kids feeding deers, listened podcast and worship songs from my iPad and observed families having picnic around the park, while munching my Calbee potato fries.
That’s a wrap of my half-day trip in Nara. It was a relaxing and easy one, I don’t look sick at the photos anyways! (sigh)
