Hi there, welcome to my blog.

What's this all about? Well, that's a question I'm probably not even qualified to answer. I guess it started off because I had nothing better to do, but turns out that I kind of like it. So when I'm not working for The Man I like to take pictures, make videos and write about whatever else might seem like a good idea at the time.

From dragon boating to mountain biking, to road trips and travels overseas - this is me trying to enjoy life. Clock out at 5, eat, drink and don't forget to smile a lot.

TGI-Food and Wine Expo...

Unline the TTC, which consists of pretty much a U and a line going through it, the train system in Tokyo is a veritable spider web consisting of Tokyo Metro, Toei and JR Rail lines. Despite that it's still very easy to get around with, 8 year olds literally do it by themselves.

Like I mentioned before the cost is distance based, so unless you want some gates to quickly slam on your nads when you validate your ticket, then buy enough fare. It seems that when someone commits this crime they're expected to commit seppuku immediately after due to the massive inconvenience it causes...not that I've ever experienced it before *cough*cough*

Anyway, this is one of the longer transfers we had to do - it was something like 300m from one line to the other (all underground) and about 9 mins. At one other transfer we did around Tsukiji, you actually had to walk outside then re-enter though a different exit. Like I said, spiderweb.

And on a totally different note, don't buy cheap iPhone screen protectors off eBay. They suck. Stick to this, and if you totally damage it beyond repair like me, just re-buy it. Trust me, because I'm cool like that

I also just realized from my Visa statement that TAKUSHI = TAXI. For a while, I thought it was just another pair of shoes I bought...
