My mate Simon just got back from spending 3 months walkabout in Australia, and a 3 night stopover in Japan. He's staying with me for a week or so to come down from it all and get his bearings back in 'sunny' Britain. Obviously he's a bit deflated after such an exciting 'adventure'. He thinks its mostly due to jet-lag, but I reckon its just coming 'down to earth with a bang'. Still at least he's done it. I am slightly jealous, more so of his mini Japanese excursion for obvious reasons, so I'm gonna save up and go visit the land of my dreams. I know its a pretty expensive cost-of-living out there but I gotta do it no matter what. I've travelled a fair bit either thru being in a punk band or with my girlfriend/friends. In fact if I list them it sounds quite impressive. But still, the one place I want to visit the most is Japan. And SOON... I have a calling to answer.
