BBC Radio Ulster recently interviewed me as part of a special series about expats living abroad over Christmas. Entitled ‘Calling Home’, it will air on Christmas Eve at 5.03pm and again on Christmas Day at 10:02am – so if you want to hear me stumble over my words via a dodgy mobile connection, tune in and have a laugh, or listen again on BBC iPlayer if you are within the UK. (Freeview Channel 719)
IKIMASHO! also features in this month’s issue of Bizarre Magazine which gives a mention to my appropriately bizarre post about Japanese women licking door handles. On sale now.
Finally, IKIMASHO! has been nominated for Wanderlust’s Travel Blog of the Year so thanks to everyone who has continued to click on and follow what I’m up to. I’m flattered. The results of that will be announced at the Wanderlust Travel Awards in London in early February.
Merry Christmas to everyone. I’m off on my travels again to Myanmar – but I’ll leave you with this video of some amazing illuminations I saw last week in Shiodome, Tokyo.
