Hey everybody, when you only have the weekend to travel and want to keep an eye on your budget, you really need to get creative on how to balance travel and sleep.

Osaka Ant

Hey guys, this weekend I did not spend in Tokyo like my name on here implies, but their rival town, Osaka.

At first I thought it was just a plastic bag, but that would have been a bit unusual in the clean streets of Tokyo and the thing moved strangely. When I came closer, a man jumped on… Continue reading Yesterday I saved a Duck
