Touring Tokyo’s temples

So what shall we do with our first day in Japan. Breakfast was the first thing that came to mind but we wasn’t sure if anything would be open, it was 5am and jet lag was causing problems. We managed to stay in bed until 6 and then headed out to the “Family Mart” (note to self: remember to always hand over payment with both hands, it's considered rude not to). After our first shopping experience we [...]

Time to take on Tokyo

Today’s blog image was taken this morning on our walk from the hotel to the nearest train station. It was absolutely pouring down but the walk through Gastown was lovely at this time of day, there was nobody around, just the smell of the bakeries preparing for the day and the sound of the rain patter. The the old fashioned street lights were still on, as were the beautiful fairy lights that lit al [...]

The scariest bridge in the world?

Thankfully we didn’t have too much planned for today because we woke up to awful weather. We shrugged it off and headed downstairs for our free breakfast that was served in the attached pub. It was very dark and dingy, we hate pubs but at least it didn't smell of stale beer! Breakfast was not too bad, and after yesterday's insulin spiking carb fest we both reached for the plain yogurt and added mi [...]

Shackles off, helmets on

It has arrived! After 10 days, the day has come were we are free from the primal diet shackles. With no dietary constraints the first stop had to be anywhere that served Nutella Pancakes.

One lady recommended Cafe Crepe jus dow [...]

Are we in Walking Dead?

Hopping off the train this morning in downtown Vancouver we were full of optimism and eager to explore a city that is frequently dubbed as one of the best cities in the world to live in. As with most major cities, accommodation isn’t cheap so our hotel was, as usual, out of the popular downtown areas. It was about a 30 minute walk East but with the sun shining we didn’t mind and set off on the mos [...]

Is Kelowna Canada’s California?

It was another early start today to pack up the tent and leave Revelstoke for Kelowna. We’re basically only heading to Kelowna thanks to the man in Billabong. I was buying some shorts in there the other day and as usual we got chatting about where we was heading and the guy on the till suggested Kelowna. He described it as Canada’s version of California, full of beaches, sun and fun. That was enou [...]
