Check-in for my next flight closes at 11:45.

I do the math slowly in my head. 54 minutes to get through customs, collect my bags, and make it upstairs to check-in.

Easy peasy.

Well, it should be easy peasy, except for one Read more

Tell Me Your Secrets, Okinawa

February 2, 2015

I’m not sure what brought me to Okinawa.

I’d heard it was kind of cheap, sunny, laid back, and just a little bit different to the rest of Japan. But we hadn’t really planned things. We just kind of ended up there.

Dinner At A Maid Cafe In Tokyo, Japan

January 26, 2015

As we walked around Tokyo’s Akihabara district, wandering through video arcades, toy stores, and a rather popular six-storey sex shop, my friend turns and says to me, “Oh, and we should definitely have dinner at a maid cafe!”

Tokyo: Just A Little Bit Overrated

January 19, 2015

About 15 years ago, I visited Tokyo with my mother for a two week trip. At the time I was about 12 or 13 years old, and the first thing I noticed were the lights; big colourful lights towering over me, as if I was walking through some kind of human pinball machine.

Is It Worth Visiting The Galapagos Islands?

December 22, 2014

A few months ago I was lucky enough to join my family on a seven day cruise of Ecuador’s famous Galapagos Islands. I’d heard countless tales of this place, especially back in 2011 during my first trip to South America, and was eager to see if they lived up to the hype.

A Galapagos itinerary is pretty Read more
