Once in a lifetime trip to Australia and Japan

As a farmer, I spend most of my days on our farm, tending to my sheep and cows, and enjoying the (mostly) peacefulness of the countryside. But, as much as I love our farm, I also love to travel and explore new places. Over the New Year I left the farm for three weeks to take a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Australia and Japan.

I headed to Australia to visit our son who was turning 21 and recently moved there for a job opportunity. I loved catching up with him and exploring the country with him and my Father. We visiting some of the most famous spots in Australia, such as the Great Barrier Reef, the Sydney Opera House, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.

But the trip didn't begin there. I took my Father with me to Japan for his early 70th birthday celebrations. JJ and I wanted to make this birthday special for him and Japan has always been a dream destination for both of us. We visited places like Tokyo, Kyoto, Shibuya City, temples and travelled on the Shinkansen.

One of the highlights of the trip was the opportunity to sample some of the best Wagyu and Kobe beef. As it was entering the New Year, the timing was perfect for trying these delicacies. We had the chance to try different cuts of meat and cooking methods, and it was an unforgettable experience. We brought back the experiences and ideas that we gathered during the trip, to develop new ideas for our own Wagyu.

We enjoyed the food, culture, and the beautiful landscapes of Japan. We have never holidayed alone together and it was wonderful to spend some quality time and create memories that will last a lifetime.

Leaving the farm is never easy, but I knew that the animals would be in excellent hands with JJ, who not only had to work his full time job but also look after our little boy. I am grateful he supports all my ideas. I have a new perspective and renewed energy to continue doing what I love and bringing new ideas to the farm this year.

Let's see what 2023 brings.
