Somehow I never got round to sorting one of my signature, month-long adventures, but rest assured it’s definitely on the list. Equally baffling is that my only visit to the land of Michelangelo […]

Travel Report: Jaisalmer, India.

March 2004. If the urban sprawl of Jaipur had betrayed us with its misleading Pink City tagline, then we were more than compensated by the extraordinary Golden City of Jaisalmer, quite possibly my favourite post from those distant India travels.

Travel Report: Harry Zoo Cafe – Harajuku, Tokyo.

Reading from China? This Travel Report contains YouTube videos, which can only be viewed with a VPN! February 2019. Tokyo’s animal café scene seems to inspire strong opinions from people.

Travel Report: Kawaii Monster Cafe – Harajuku, Tokyo.

February 2019. Another morning in the Japanese capital another amazing, only-in-Tokyo themed café breakfast. This time Wonderboy and I had arrived at The Kawaii Monster Café in the city’s Harajuku district. At reception we were warmly welcomed (Konnichiwaaaaaaaaaaa!!!!) by two giggly women dressed like extras from Tim Burton’s Alice In Wonderland. Behind them, on a blood-red back […]
