All I wanted to do was run through all the torii gates at Fushimi Inari Taisha and get to the top (read: GET. TO. THE. TOP. NOW) and you were dead tired and just wanted ice cream a third of the way through. You warned me it was going to take a while, and you said your legs were aching, yet I chose to be a little selfish and I remained persistent.

A few years ago we took a spontaneous hike in Kaliurang, Indonesia, and I lost my sunglasses and tripped up a slope and I laughed and we were in stitches after that. That time, I persisted. We didn’t get to the top, you logic-ed me out of it (eventually) but you logic me out of many things where I’m being unreasonable.

I like to push boundaries. I try to be reasonable. Sometimes I’m not, but you put up with it until I learn. You are patient with me even when I’m not patient.

We did make it to the top of Fushimi Inari Taisha. In this photo we are both smiling. And even though it’s not much of a view at the top, the best view is you. And the best adventures are the ones with you.
