Following a rather raucous night at the Park Hyatt Tokyo (you can can immerse yourself in our sozzled experience here), James and I hopped on the bullet train and travelled a casual 504km to Osaka – a city infamous for its food and drink scene.
Which we were finally able to endure after what I would call one of the ‘top 10 hangovers of my life’. Hurrah!
Expect castles, street food and helpful morsels of information including how the bloody hell do you use a Japanese laundry?
Our first two days in Tokyo included yakitori in piss alley, maid cafes, the golden gai and even a whizz around the city that in no way resembled nintendo’s mario kart…
James took me Istanbul for my birthday after a dropped a few hints (along the lines of “ooh you know where I’d love you to take me for my surprise birthday trip? Turkey) so we decided to crack out our #askalocal once more.
Was slightly more difficult than NY and London on the basis that no one could bloody understand a word we were saying (I blame James’ northern tones) but we muddled through and wasn’t it worth it?! Well, being able to say you’ve visited the ‘worst club in the world’ is quite the statement, right?
If you’re interested in what Istanbul is really like (and just how ‘safe’ a place deemed as ‘high risk’ on .gov.uk can really be…) then make sure you subscribe as we’ll take you through our experiences in the next video.
