Latest Updates

I'm definately bidding for Osaka again. I totally fell in love with Japan. The culture, the food, the shopping, the people... I'm so glad I did a year of Japanese in primary and high school. The passengers were so nice and I don't know if I'll enjoy a layover that good anytime soon.

Anyway, here's some photos. I'm quite shocked at how good some of them turned out, most of the time I was very jetlagged and was afraid I couldn't focus the camera or hold it straight.


View of the main port in Osaka from my hotel room

View of highway at 7am. Not bad for peak hour traffic!

The electric toilet in my bathroom. I was pretty scared I was gonna electrocute myself. You can have all these different jets, you can control the water pressure, you can adjust the temperature of the seat warmer. Only in Japan...

My very comfy bed

Picture of me on the Osaka subway and Khalfan, another economy crew member, trying to avoid the camera.

Subway sign taken at the Trade Centre station on the Osaka subway


Subway worker hiding under the platform in anticipation of the next train. Personally I think what he's doing is a little too dangerous. Give me planes flying at 35000 feet anyday.

The National History Museum near Osaka castle.


Some random hut next to the museum. In the corner is the guy who flew us all to Osaka, Tony. Thank god he was there, all the signs were in Japanese and he was the only one who knew where to go.


The moat outside of Osaka castle, framed by cherry blossoms.

An old martial arts hall on the other side of the moat

A wishing well. Not somewhere I'd like to take a drink though

They had a garden fair when we were at the castle and this display won the small garden competition. The little red houses certainly add a nice touch.

Japanese Busker. There were quite a few of these and none of us really knew what they were doing there for. There's boy scouts in the background too, they were really nice, friendly, and some of the other crew took it upon themselves to teach them some bad english words.

Bonsai tree. I wish my Japanese maple turned out like that :-(


A picture of me amongst the cherry blossoms

Osaka castle in all it's gilded glory

A nice lake by the castle where we had lunch. There were little turtles here too!

The view from Osaka castle. Very much anti-climatic.


Final shot of cherry blossoms I wanted to cram into this post

Cute little Hidamari no Tami toys that I got for Kris.

Next layover should be Hong Kong so I hope to add more cool photos to the blog very soon :-)
