Sometimes you just get rucky

Posted by on October 27, 2007

When you travel by the seat of your pants and make things up as you go along, sometimes you strike out and sometimes you hit it big. Yesterday, I hit it big. Totally by accident.

I reserved a hotel room online in Kagoshima. The cheapest one available was in Kirishima, which I assumed was a suburb of Kagoshima. Well, it isn`t quite a suburb. It turns out it is a small village in Kirishima National Park with hot springs everywhere. The place I reserved just happened to have some sort of Fall special, so I got to stay in a nice hot spring spa resort for not much money.

I have a ton of photos to upload still, but I`m not having luck getting internet access. I`m at the Kagoshima airport right now at a pay-per-minute terminal on a bus layover watching the end of the World Series Game 3. I also got to watch the Dragons vs. Fighters last night in the Japan Series.

Hopefully, I`ll have a real internet connection later today.
