Might seem conceited to be plugging my own Kindle book but thought it might be of interest to your followers? It tells of my travels in Japan from a daily log I kept plus tips, hints and some advice. I travel alone and mostly stay in self-catering apartments. I started at age 64 and my next trip should have been to celebrate my 70th but Covid put an end to that – so I am aiming to celebrate my 71st in Japan!!!
It’s in Kindle format because I made slideshows of each day which I uploaded to Youtube and the links are within the text.
This isn’t about making money, I really wanted to share my love for Japan and my experience with like minded people – so it is priced at 2.99 GPB (about 12 shekels, less than $4) It’s actually free on Kindle Unlimited!
