A group of friends and I did a three month trip in Alaska.. mostly doing back-country camping. One of the highlights of the trip was our stay in Sitka. Here is a clip from their tourism department. It does it justice.

Hi Laerkin,

I was in Japan for two weeks in May for work. I did not make it over to Kyoto - I did however spend some wonderful time in Tokyo, Mt. Fuji, Oshima, Enoshima, Kamakura and some of the smaller prefectures in Tokyo.

Most important depends on what you are looking to do and see. I would highly recommend Sumo in Tokyo. While I never imagined it would be something I enjoyed -- I totally got into it and almost fell off the balcony rooting for my wrestler! Kabuki is a must as well.

If you are interested in seeing temples - I would suggest you take the train to Kamakura (from Tokyo) and then walk or cab into Enoshima, where you should find a traditional Japanese Inn to stay. You will sleep on traditional bedding and have your meals served in your room - Quite the beautiful experience. Enoshima is a tiny fishing village walking distance to Kamakura - GORGEOUS! The temple in both Enoshima and Kamakura are spectacular. Amida Budda can be found in Kamakura (the largest standing buddah). Though, it was a tad touristy. Don't forget to buy lots of little $5 charms from the temples - they are the BEST (lol).

I was in Mt. Fuji for our annual Symphony of Peace at Fuji Sanctuary... And while there is not so much to see in Fuji - It is a spectacular site, and perhaps you can walk up the mountain a bit. I believe they have transportation to a certain point.

Do not forget the HOT SPRINGS!

Any other questions please ask -- I can always find out for you through my work, as my organization is Japanese based.

Julie

Default a beautiful place to visit!

We have many beautiful state parks here in Oregon and I love to visit the waterfalls in Silver Falls State Park (east of the Salem, Oregon area).

This photo is of the South Falls (it's a gorgeous place for a hike too)

Default Blue sparkly notes for tonight: Mikhail Bakhtin & Russian Tea

It was so nice to see this forum thread in my files tonight!

A big thank you to Sparkle for sharing her very beautiful places ...
I have heard about the 12 Apostles from friends who have been
fortunate to visit this beautiful rock sanctuary on the Melbourne coast!

_______
*****
**
*

I wanted to leave a special post tonight in this forum...

I've been reading a bit about a Russian philosopher of language, literary critic and semiotician Mikhail Bakhtin and his ideas around dialogism, carnivalesque, and his Philosophy of the Act: Bahktin makes three claims regarding the acknowledgment of the uniqueness of one's participation in "being:"


1) I both actively and passively participate in being;
2) that my uniqueness is a given but it simultaneously exits only to the degree to which I actualize my uniqueness;
3) Because I am actual and irreplaceable I must actualize my uniqueness.


(reference)

Liapunov, V. & Holquist, M. (Eds.) (1993). Mikhail M. Bakhtin's Toward a philosophy of the act. Translated by: Vadim Liapunov. Austin, TX: Austin Texas University Press.


SoOOoOoOoo,


Here's a little quote I found while perusing some materials at the library today:

True open seriousness fears neither parody, nor irony, nor any other form of reduced laughter, for it is aware of being part of an uncompleted whole (...) it does not deny seriousness but purifies and completes it. Laughter purifies dogmatism from the intolerant and the petrified, from fanaticism and pendantry, from fear and intimidation.

--M. Bakhtin


Someday....
I would love to visit Russia but until I am able to, I am happy to leave a photo here tonight of a beautiful place I would love to see one day...

What a beautiful philosophy, thank you.

"that my uniqueness is a given but it simultaneously exists only to the degree to which I actualize my uniqueness"
I love this sentiment.

I would love to see Russia as well, particularly St. Petersburg

When I lived in London and had easy (& super cheap) access to Europe - I traveled to "warmer" climates almost exclusively. Now I would like to explore Northern & Central European capitals: Reykjavik (I loved Laerkin's photos), Copenhagen, Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Krakow, Dubrovnik

But there is so much more of the world to see, such incredibly beauty and adventure everywhere --- I'm not sure when I'll make it back to Europe again.

My next big plan is to explore South America, does anyone have any stories or photos to share?
