    Welcome back Helen! Looks like you had amazing trip despite being under the weather in the end. I am enjoying the photos and looking forward to the following ones.

    Looks like you had a fab time in Japan :)

    I have a question for you - if you had a friend visiting and wanted to impress them with the best of Sydney, where would you take them for brunch?

    Hope you can give me some ideas!

    cheers Belinda :)

    Hi jenjen - Japan was fantastic, as always. I am busy working on the photos. Argh! So many. Keep your eyes peeled :)

    Hi Florizal - Best of Sydney? Argh! Sometimes I like to take visitors to another world like Cabramatta, Bankstown, Lakemba or Campsie. Otherwise a trip to the Fish Markets gives you a visit to the "aquarium" AND a tasty feed after as well :)

    I always do a DIY picnic of oysters, Crystal Bay prawns, a small box of best salmon and tuna sashimi (don't forget the seaweed salad!) and a serve of beer battered fish and chips to finish. I had a friend who loved lobster - I just got one of the friendly fishmongers to saw one in half and we ate it with a squeeze of lemon. Why buy it from the lunch counters when you can get it half price from the source :)

    Hi Jennifer - The capsule hotel was fun. You must try it if you ever get the chance!

    Spotted that you were blog od the day so I though I'd come take a look.
    Are those your feet in the photo?

    Hi, I just surfed on in. Do those hotel cubes stink? The thought of all the previous feet that have been sweating in there has me asking. Happy Trails.

    Hi Hi baldockbaldrick - Yep, those are my feet. It'd be a big struggle to fit two people into a capsule :)

    Hi Rory - Not at all. Japan was always very clean. You could wonder about hotel rooms if you follow that line of thought. And what about train seats? lol
