Robot Restaurant – The Weirdest and Most Brilliant Show in Tokyo

Robot Restaurant Shinjuku

I first heard about Tokyo’s Robot Restaurant on an episode of Anthony Bourdain’s Parts Unknown. While it didn’t seem to capture much about traditional Japanese culture, it seemed to be the craziest, weirdest, yet most brilliant show I’ve ever heard about, so when I brought my father on a trip to Japan, I was determined to include it in our schedule. It didn’t disappoint.

Rainy and Moody in Munich

Today was a really lazy day. Mike and I were both exhausted after getting back from Berlin last night, so we slept in and took it easy today. After brunch, we took a stroll through Olympiapark and visited the BMW Museum.

Lightroom CC for iPad – An Unfortunate Compromise

I recently started traveling full time, so I purchased an iPad Pro to accompany my MacBook Pro. I’m going to be spending a lot of time writing in coffee shops around the world over the next few months, so I don’t want to carry my MacBook Pro around unless I absolutely have to.

What Happens in Berlin Stays in Berlin

Mike and I arrived in Berlin tonight, and we’re fairly certain we’ve accidentally entered into an alternate universe.

A Second in Seoul

Every time I go to Seoul, it seems like I’m only there for a second. I’ve thought about spending a month or two exploring South Korea many times, but my travel plans always change last minute when Seoul is involved. This time was no different. I originally planned to stay for a week and a half after spending Chinese New Year in Hong Kong, but then I had to make an unexpected trip to Tokyo and my time in Seoul was reduced to three and a half days. Regardless, I tried to make the best of it.
