Japan 2008

It’s at this point, folks, that we really begin debunking the notion that Hughesy is, or was, travel-averse. That’s not to suggest there wasn’t a certain amount of apprehension when you’re looking at a couple of weeks in an environment with no immediate prospect of escape if you don’t ilke what’s going down, but from the moment we touched down at Kansai International, as the following travelogue shows, I had a great time, and would have happily headed back at any time in the period between arriving back Down Under and the next excursion in that direction (earthquakes, tsunamis and aftershocks notwithstanding)..
