Eloping To Japan With A Little HEL On The Side Part 7: Hiroshima Mon Amour

We checked out very easily from the Okura and got the metro to Hakata station. Not having all the time in the world we spotted Seattle’s Best Coffee and ordered a breakfast set.

In the end … Continue reading Eloping To Japan With A Little HEL On The Side Part 7: Hiroshima Mon Amour

Our flight landed around 20 minutes late into Narita and we were glad to be on our way and off the plane.

Flying My First Inaugural – London to Ljubljana Part 6: Another Fun Filled London Weekend

When we got off the bus it was approaching midnight and it was not a perfect world.

Our morning started off with the now customary basement breakfast buffet at Penzion Kaps. Whilst I enjoyed eating from the decent spread, I would later find out again that there was something in my selection that did not agree with me at all. Once again I would find to my distress that it would be the second lunch in a row where I had the … Continue reading Flying My First Inaugural – London to Ljubljana Part 4: Ljubljana

Flying My First Inaugural – London to Ljubljana Part 3: Lake Bohinj

We had agreed on an early start in order to spend the bulk of the day at Lake Bohinj, but honestly being on holiday and getting up at 7 AM felt like hell so in a welcome change from the norm I slept in till 7:30 AM whilst Anne-So got ready. Around a quarter past eight we popped down to the basement for the breakfast … Continue reading Flying My First Inaugural – London to Ljubljana Part 3: Lake Bohinj

A Cheapskate’s Weekend in Prague Part 7: Touring The World Through Prague

As was the theme on this trip we started the day with an absolutely epic breakfast. Other than those amazing Indian breakfast buffet spreads I can’t think of a trip where we started the day so well, so often.La Bottega Bistroteka was just a short walk from the hotel and we were amongst the first to arrive along with some other tourists that seemed to … Continue reading A Cheapskate’s Weekend in Prague Part 7: Touring The World Through Prague
