Setting up a perfect Saturday.

Yes, I know we're only half-way through the day, but it's shaping up to be rather perfect. I woke up this morning after an epic sleep, feeling rather more human than I have all week. I worked my little ass off in Dublin on Thursday and Friday and, while I was delighted with the result, ...

Japan day four: Wandering around Kyoto

After the exertions of the previous day's trip to Hiroshima, we spent Wednesday in Kyoto, taking things at a very leisurely pace. Very leisurely. Kyoto is such a great place for aimless wandering.

Sumo Sushi Blowout

This afternoon marked a long-overdue return to the now infamous Yo! Sushi "Sumo Sunday". Basically, you give them £20 (£19.50 for you pedants) and they let you eat all you can off the sushi belt for a full 60 minutes. Now. An arrangement like that will seem like a bargain to most normal people. We ...
