So Christmas is great. Halloween is greater. And Comic Con might just be the best of them all. And unlike Christmas and Halloween, I haven’t experienced Comic Con in almost three years. My love for it started back in Australia when I went to the Sydney Supanova 2011. I’d never been to a Con before, … More Montreal Comic Con 2016
You know you’re a world traveler when you have five different types of money in your wallet. That would be Japanese yen, Korean Won, Australian Dollars, Canadian change, and 5 Chinese zhongguo renmin yinhang (though that last one’s a cheat, I got it in my coins when I bought groceries down te street ^ ^).
No, this isn’t a religious post concerning those unholy things that have been left unblessed by a lack of Hail Mary’s and crossings-of-thyself. Imma instead be talking about checklists, of the travel sort. And as this is my 200th post, I thought I’d do a longer and more philosoraptor-y piece as I did for my … More The Things Left Uncrossed
This is my 100th post. Just wow – I can’t believe how fast that went! As such, I’m going to do a special topic. So this one’s dedicated to all the dearest friends I’ve met around the world, especially the ones I most recently was able to chillax with in Australia and the ones who … More A Word on Friends
When C came to visit Montreal, it was timed perfectly so that I was in the midst of saying “bye!!” to Canada in the prepping for heading to Korea. Because C was a tourist, I very much took advantage of his presence to do heaps of touristy things I probably never would have got around … More The Illawara Fly, or Taking Advantage of Your Tourist Friends To Do All the Touristy Stuff You Wouldn’t Be Caught Dead Doing Otherwise
One of the first things I did when I got to Australia was make a bet with C about if I would get sunburned this trip. As always, I was determined for it not to happen, but this time – this time – I was going to take care of myself. It’s not easy, though, … More In A Sunburned Country
As Japan is known for its freaky-as subcultures, Australia is known for its political correctness. Lol jks, I mean its total lack thereof. Australia is one of those countries where getting a laugh is of utmost priority throughout the course of the day. Aussies will mine a situation for humour the way Durin’s kin mined … More Taking the Piss: Why I Love Australia #134
Eating a burger in Australia was high on my list of things to do. Part of this is because of my lack of beef consumption these last four months, but who are we kidding? I don’t expect there to be real beef in burgers anymore these days. No: my desire for an Aussie burger was … More The Lot, or The Story of the World’s Most Flamboyant Burger
(NOTE: I’ll be swinging back and forth between Australia, winter camps, and present day things going on for a bit since these posts have been considerably backed up. But never fear! Just means more reading material.) As most of you dear readers know already, this wasn’t my first time to Australia. Back in 2011 I … More Australia: Round Two and the String of Regrettable (Yet Amusing) Mishaps
No I’ve not died some painful, poisonous death while in the land of Oz (though there was a close encounter with a shark. But imma teaser trailer you with that and make you wait to read more about that in a near-future post….). There was, however, a large lack of internet. So while I was … More I’m Back!
