Melbourne Street Art

Melbourne is a wonderful place! I’ve just spent the last 12 days there. Among other things I loved exploring and looking at all the amazing street art!!
This grasshopper was found in Fitzroy and is by Buzzard.

Japanese Honeymoon: Part Five

After spending our first few days in heavenly Hakone it was time to head to fast pace, big city Tokyo! We said goodbye to our beautiful hotel and caught a railway car, bullet train and normal train to the busiest train station in the world, Shinjuku. We checked into our hotel, stopped to snack on the very popular octopus balls and then headed out into the night!

We are both huge fans of Lost In Translation, so heading to the Park Hyatt Hotel Tokyo where a lot of the movie was filmed, was high up on our list to go! I actually sat at the bar where Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray shared a drink!!

We then proceeded to stroll through Shinjuku. Eat some delicious ramen (that you ordered on a vending machine), look through cheap liquor stores, play video games and skill testers.

The next day we headed for Shibuya to look at guitars and shop! We had some amazing gyoza for lunch and walked around cool Shibuya. We visited a record store that had four levels, with different genres on each level. We bought LOTS of records! I got heaps of Otis Redding!! We also went to a department store called Loft, there were so many levels with different quirky things! I got some brooches, Polaroid photo albums, sushi erasers, cute lunch boxes, popcorn, iPhone “jellyfish” case and lots of cute fridge magnets!

We walked through the scramble intersection in Shibuya which has been named to busiest intersection in the world! It was crazy busy! Wow!

Half the fun of walking around Tokyo is getting lost and stumbling upon crazy/cool stuff! In the next few days, read about our fun night out in Shinjuku and a visit to Tokyo Tower!
