If you ask me about Kyoto I'll tell you 5 key things:
one: It's a much bigger city than I thought- for some reason I thought it would be more quaint
two: Despite that it has the most beautiful nature-type things I've ever seen
three: We got shown around by a free guide for a full day- a retiree who out paced us 90% of the time
four: How awesome I was to accidentally book a service apartment- doing laundry and making our breakfast was just what we needed
five: It will be forever associated with the fact I fell off my bike (hard) and onto my face. I then sat on the road and cried for half an hour before forcing myself to 'not waste the day' and rode for another 30km...
