It was still raining today, so it was a challenge to quickly research something to do indoors that wasn’t shopping. Thus we ticked off another one of my bucket list “of course that’s a thing” activities – the Cup of Noodle museum.
This was probably our hardest day of the trip so far…but spoiler alert, things get better on day 4! So excuse the “we’re nearly going to have a break down” facials you see in this vlog. And excuse the dancing, because…..Kelly dancing.
