My travel to a nearby town during my most recent vacation was interrupted partway because someone left an unattended pressure cooker in the vicinity of one of the train stations.

(It ended up not being a bomb. Not sure if it was an intentional "hoax" or just someone leaving their old pressure cooker out with the trash.)

I was in Europe for 2 1/2 weeks. A week and a half of it was Germany.

Most memorable moment/time: Hofbräuhaus München. We got there at about 5pm for dinner, and stayed until probably 5am, drinking, eating, and hanging out with the locals. It really turned into a fun party.

Trip to Japan
We caught a bus from Narita airport to Mito, apon leaving the bus said in perfect english "Please take your junk with you."
It wasn't kidding! there were vending machines everywhere but no bins.
The shopping centre near the station seemed to be dedicated to food and clothes with one large electronics/camera/watch store.
I forgot to get an Othello board game from the town that invented it and I regret it still.
Had my heart rate monitored at an office waiting room. Had some ramen and gyosa.
I went for a walk along the river and saw some ducks, fish, birds, evidence of hobos and some spiders. Then I went to a park with a construction site sectioned off, They had a bin.

We had assorted sashimi and sushi. There was caviar, eel, shrimp, tuna, squid and some other things I hadn't tried. Raw fish was new to me and I found most of it difficult to swallow but I kept it down. Tea and futon combo was bliss. Ate a bunch of sweets.
We had a tremor and the TV said there was flooding and a typhoon was closing in on the west and traveling east.

We took the bullet train to Kyoto in the west.
Of the 1700 shrines I only visited a handful, bought some trinkets.
I saw a tea ceremony. Went on a walk through the bamboo forest, there was a vending machine in the middle of the forest. visited a museum for fabrics and weaving.
Ate a bunch of sweets and drank lots of tea.

Went to Tokyo Via bullet train.
went to Nakano broadway, an origami centre, imperial palace, started running out of cash.
Ate a bunch of sweets and drank lots of tea.

Took the bullet train back to Mito then a bus back to Narita airport.
The rain was pissing down at this point and the wind had picked up a lot so the plane had a rocky take off.

I haven't actually gone on vacation before. It seems like a nice idea, we just can't afford it.

The ads make it look like you're missing out on a lot but in my experience it's mostly site seeing.
Most things I would do over seas I could do within 5Km from home.

I went to Hawaii that was nice, kinda hectic too. I did the hula on stage with a woman from Spain and a Japanese person. It was kinda awkward and buffet had lots of raw food and I tried caviar for the first time it was gross. The mc was kinda ackward he sang to the ladies at the buffet and to me. most of the crowd was foriegners and had no clue what he was saying most of the time. I had crepes but they weren't that good. Oh I had strawberry mochi ice cream really good. I saw a British lady get told off on the bus by an old guy, she was sitting in the handycapped and old ppl seating.

I went to my best friend's house and we talked about things we never have been able to talk about before. I got to meet and play with her dogs. I met her parents, her brothers, and her grandparents. We also went to her grandparent's house. Her grandma chatted and prepared us fruits to eat. It was endearing.

We basically did normal and usual things to do. Watched movies, listened and sang songs but damn, I felt really comfortable and peaceful while I was there. I was going through a stressful and depressing phase back then and it was a nice change and came at the right time. It's not really a vacation, hardly an overnight but it was more than memorable.

I think vacations are overrated, but I Visited Wyoming with my lovable idiot friends and myself over Spring Break. Nothing much there, but definitely enjoyed my time on the road and staying at camp grounds. In the end I had to get my tires and front bumper replaced, (tires got worn down, and a coyote won a Darwin Award).

I'm planning on another in two weeks to Hawaii, compliments of a shareholder's timeshare.

I haven't been on holiday for a long time due to reasons but managed to get myself to Paris for a few nights with my girlfriend It helps that I'm in the UK and can just get a train there.

Never taken one

I've taken day trips that were like 4-6 hours away, namely Philly, which was nice. As a history lover it was fun.
