Not a laundry Monday: Trailing from Mt Raizan to Kanayama.

I know, it should have been a Laundry Monday.

But the weather forecast was perfect ...
... with shitty-windy-wet stuff predicted within 48 hours,
 so we decided to hit the road ... trail the mountains. 

Not far away, just the charms south of Fukuoka.

And indeed, it became a very enjoyable Hiking Monday.
This YouTube tells it all.

Thank you Noriko, Riki, Sachie and Kondou san.
Hope to Trail you Soon.

Typhoon Vongfong comes to Alishan for a Cup of Tea.

So many times, we are asked what it is to be on board of Alishan during a typhoon.
See here some recording at our harbor during typhoon Vongfong aka # 19.
We are lucky as the center of the typhoon passes us to the East, hence we get NE and N winds, the "perfect wind direction for our location. 

Shortly after finishing the edit for this video, the real wind started. Yes when the barometer was going UP from 992 to 1010.  
Maybe we had for a while > 40 knots sustained with gusts well over that. 
Peanuts for what it was "blowing" down in southern Japan. 
But enough for us.
All is well.
