Ubud-dah add this to your bucket list.

Hello Pals,

I recently went to Ubud for a friends birthday and ‘u bud-dah believe I loved it!’ (sorry.) Ubud was a fantastic time away; fresh food, lovely people and so many sights around that you understand why people want to come and live here. It’s away from Kuta and the party-feel (do the Shaka m8) so although it’s touristy it’s not your typical Australian southern cross tattoo, bin-tang singlet walk around with buckets of alcohol touristy.

Day Trip: Himeji & Kobe.

Hello Pals,
While my friends were off doing something for the day I decided I’d venture off for a day trip to Himeji and Kobe. It’s quite close from Kyoto with a JR pass and to be honest, I didn’t even plan Himeji until I heard it announced over the speaker and decided to continue to Himeji and go to Kobe on the way back.

Here’s how I spent a day trip in Himeji and Kobe.

Hi Pals,
I was recently able to return to Hiroshima after winning a competition for free flights with Japan Airlines. They’ve just released a new direct route from Melbourne – Tokyo and believe me, it was one of the best flights I’ve taken. A little care package, snacks, decent food and a range of entertainment options (opinion my own).
Last time I was in Japan I wasn’t able to make it to a few places in Hiroshima or Miyajima (at all) due to lack of time and opting to check out Bunny Island instead. This time around, I was ready to have a full two days doing this area.

KYOTO

Hiya Pals,
Let’s talk all things Kyoto.
Kyoto has such a history of traditionalism in Japan, formerly the capital it’s filled with shrines, temples, gardens and palaces. This is one of the main reasons we chose Kyoto as a place to base ourselves for day trips.
This post is made up of a visit in November 2017 and July 2018 (which explains the change of outfits!)
