Daniel Maisonave-Tanon’s Many Adventures

This summer, I’ve enjoyed hearing about some of the awesome vacations our patients have been on or are planning to take. Many members of our staff at the office are taking turns enjoying some pretty fun trips of their own. Recently, Daniel Maisonave-Tanon, one of our front-desk team members, returned from a great trip to Japan and South Korea. His vacation sounded like a lot of fun, and I asked him to share some of his adventures with our patients this month.

I’ll let Daniel take it from here!

Earlier this summer, my family took an awesome trip to Japan. My cousin is stationed in Okinawa, and this trip was to visit him. He’d never been to Tokyo before, so we spent a lot of time doing fun touristy things in the city. I love looking out over big cities, so one of my favorite places we visited was the Tokyo Skytree, the tallest tower in the world. The tower is 634 meters high, and we got to stand on the Tembo Galleria 450 meters above the city. Back on the ground, we visited a massive, five-story arcade, chilled and had tea at a real cat cafe, and walked around the district of Akihabara. We even spent a day at the Tokyo Disney Resort. I’m a huge fan of Disneyland, so this was my favorite place we visited in Japan.

because it’s close by and a lot cheaper to stay in than Japan. I was thrilled with this decision because I love Korea. There are so many awesome things to do, like shopping in the bustling Myeong-dong or watching people dance on the street in Hongdae. As I mentioned before, I love looking over big cities. So for me, the highlight of our stay in Korea was Namsan Tower in Seoul. Officially called N Seoul Tower, it’s not nearly as tall at the Tokyo Skytree, but the view is still stunning. On the observation floor, you have a 360-degree view of Korea. There are even signs telling you when you’re facing the direction of certain major cities. Much like the former “love lock bridge” of Paris, Namsan Tower has a roof terrace where couples can hang love padlocks together. It’s very sweet. These are only a few of the amazingly fun things we got to do in Japan and Korea. If you’d like to hear more, feel free to ask the next time you’re in the office! I’d like to share more stories. And my biggest piece of advice is this: If you have a chance to visit either of these countries, don’t hesitate to book your flight!

Before anyone asks, yes, I did eat some food. The ramen and shabu-shabu we had were great, but to be completely honest, I ate quite a few meals at McDonalds or KFC. Don’t judge me — sometimes you’re just craving burgers and fries. We booked a two-week trip, but my cousin could only get away from the military for one of those weeks. During the other, we hopped on a flight to South Korea
