As I Live and Breathe
A prime example of how askew and erratic things have been of late is the arrival today of my Olympic tickets for the Tokyo 2020 men’s mountain bike race. What the dickens? Yes, you read that correctly and more than two months late I might add. The rationale being that due to constant dilly-dallying about whether or not to allow spectators there wasn’t sufficient time for them to be delivered before the race. Since I technically opted and paid for paper ticket delivery the Organising Committee have held up their end and evidently decided ‘better late than never’. At any rate, a nice little souvenir to hide-away in a drawer.
With that being said, my disappointment with not hiking over the past couple of months mercifully looks to be coming to an end. Today Japan is winding down the state of emergency today in all 19 prefectures including Tokyo. To that, I gingerly raise my glass in merriment. The blog has been ‘stuck’ on 98 hikes for seemingly ages but have pencilled in a couple to hopefully reach this major milestone before another unforeseen occurrence befall us all. Hope you all enjoy some brilliant hikes this autumn 😊
