I spent one whole day in China!
As to get to Europe from New Zealand was a bit tricky, I had some hours between flights in Guangzhou, I though If life takes me there anyways, then I could have a bit more time and spend some time in the city, instead of spending some useless hours at the airport. So, I’ve booked the second flight to the next day.
I always wanted to try this form of traveling. Living in a camper van. Finally, we did it!
Is it a real thing, that people ride campervans around New Zealand?
Hell yeah! You would be surprised how commonly is. Now it’s quite a low season, but still, tons of vans are on the road. I can’t even imagine what’s the situation when it’s actually warm, and high season.
Australia, a country far away with cool people who likes to surf, listening to good music, and write them…. kangaroos jumping through the road, and some animal called wombat is living there too. Opera house and some other interesting buildings in the city called Sydney, which is not the capital. Yes, so, that’s how I’ve seen Australia from Hungary.
It’s always different when you see something in real life. After Japan, it felt like some kind of cultural shock, especially Cairns, where our flight landed from Tokyo. They were questioning us, and examined our luggages, as they were suspicious about that the time we applied for the visa was just days before our flight, plus this extensive traveling didn’t seem right for them. So it does for us. By the way, on 13th April, we going to celebrate a 1 year travel anniversary, more or less with constant traveling together. Everything started at the San Francisco airport where we were waiting for our flight to Bangkok, first trip abroad together.
The Japanese food is another reason, that Tokyo is one of the best city of the world. I experienced that strange thing, that I didn’t find bad food there. Of course it’s not a problem, but how it can be?
Japan is famous of its focus on details, as well the on the quality. You go to one of the food court of a mall, and you have the best food of your life. I didn’t have this experience so far too many times…but finally here we go.
I already mentioned that there are tons of interesting or at first sight weird places to eat, but I encourage everyone to experience more and more places, you can’t go too wrong with that. Don’t forget the size doesn’t matter if we talk about Japanese eateries.
We ate Tokyo! Let’s see what were on the menu!
In real time we already left Japan, but I’m still under its impression. Let’s continue the guide about the neighborhoods, then later I can write you about my favorite topic: food.
If you prefer more lively places, come to Roppongi. You can meet here a lot of foreigners, the bars are next to each other, and more likely you’ll find some clubs too.
Within some walk, you can reach Tokyo Tower, at night with the brick colored light it has a very impressive look.
You can ask me which areas are the best to go in Tokyo, I would immediately tell at least 5 of them. As I mentioned in the last post Tokyo doesn’t have an actual center, every neighborhood has its own characteristic. Let’s see what are those, illustrated with some pictures!
Pulsing energy, colors, neon advertisements, hipster coffee places, shopping and crowd. These are the words come to my mind the first thinking of Shibuya. In one of the crossing, there are usually 2000 people passing by next to you during the green light. That’s something you should experience. Sometimes I just like to walk around these streets, listening to the noises, passing in front of the tons of restaurants and feel the vibration in the air around me.
