One foot in front of the other. Deep breaths and deeper conversations. There’s nothing like hiking to open the mind and loosen the tongue.
Whether it’s the jungles of Sumatra, the forests of Spain’s Basque Country or the high desert plains of central Mexico, our family truly connects when hiking together. The conversations we have on the trail just don’t happen on sidewalks or train platforms. Our kids learned to hike outside of Tokyo, and hiking together among the autumn leaves in Japan will always be some of our fondest memories.
