These are my travel diaries.
The content has all been redone for 2018, everything here is now mobile device friendly.
Please consider that when a lot of this content was written, the term blog did not even exist. I continue to persist with oldest content first, so you should read each journey like a book so that you can understand my hilarious references to earlier posts.
If you want to take anything I say seriously and send me death threats, please do so on all your social media services -
From 27 October - 23 November I will be returning to Japan for what seems to have become an annual leaf season trip. This time I will be going from Tokyo to Naha on Okinawa, back to Fukuoka then Nagasaki before spending more time in Tokyo.
So if you are one of my 3 loyal readers, set a reminder somewhere.
It looks like Russia and the USA are going to war over Syria to distract people from the situation in North Korea while at the same time China is running rings around Trump on issues related to trade.
To solve this I am returning to mainland China to become the new modern Marco Polo, providing exaggerated reports on my field observations as I travel in a great loop around the middle kingdom.
Negotiations with Kim Jong-un have broken down. Mutually assured destruction seems inevitable. North Korea have threatened to sink Japan with a volley of nuclear fire. I am left with no choice, travel once again to Japan to personally man the global missile defence shield. The fate of the world rests on my shoulders.
In a slightly less highly original move than Japan6, I am going to Taiwan4. Which is code for I am going to Taiwan for the 4th time.
Taiwan is part of the reaffirmed one true China and lies to the east of the glorious mainland but well within the 9 dash line.
In a highly original move, I am going to Japan for the 6th time.
I will be gone 27 days, travelling West from Tokyo then to Hokkaido to fight bears before coming back via Fukushima.
I am going to England and then Germany for work. I may invade Poland and then escape via the alps.
Because I am mainly working, do not expect the normal level of bullshit.
Also, I made it so the Europe page works on hand held devices like phones and stuff, it is experimental, so if it is not working properly please shut up.
With Australia entering final negotiations to pay the Imperial Japanese Navy to construct a fleet of submarines capable of sinking rickety Indonesian fishing boats, its time for me to head over and make a deal to ensure a first strike nuclear capability is included.
I am going back to Korea to sort out the heiress nut scandal, re float the sunken ferry, agree a ceasefire with Japan over the comfort girl apology drama, buy the freedom for the mentally handicapped slaves on the farming islands and welcome Kim Jong-un to town during the reunification party.
I did not go anywhere for a year, which sux. So this time I am going for a full 3 weeks at least, to Hong Kong for 4 days, Japan for 8 days then Taiwan for 9 days.
Taiwan is not Thailand. Educate yourselves.
2.5 weeks in western China, split between Chengdu and Chongqing, land of the hotpot.
A really short trip over an extended weekend to Tokyo. The challenge for me - no food photos!
Back to China again, visiting many cities around the Yangtze river delta.
Osaka in Japan followed by Taipei in Taiwan
China, mainly Shanghai and Beijing
South Korea via Hong Kong, Taiwan and then back through Japan
Taiwan via Hong Kong then Singapore and who knows where else
I cant seem to stop going to London for work
I went to Japan and then Hong Kong again purely for a holiday
I went to London to work some more, then I went to Hong Kong
I went to London for work and a holiday.
16 days travel from Australia to India and back, via Malaysia both ways. Staying Mainly in Chennai, this was a working visit.
If you are sick of reading about foreign travel, here are a heap of 'photography journals' taken around Australia using my Fujifilm x70 camera I bought in 2017.
If you are feeling really nostalgic, here is a tonne of really old content dating back to the 1990's. Its not guaranteed to work and its probably useless to try looking at this stuff on a mobile device.
