Windermere played host to its 5th Annual Craft Beer Festival over the weekend and I got together with a few friends (some old some new) and we hit downtown Windermere like we were the kings and queens of the castle. Well maybe more like princes and princesses….you get the idea. We went out and partied!!!!! We had delicious craft beer. Listened to live music. Learned a little more about beer and a little bit about ourselves. Alright lets get to…. A Grand Quinquennial – Recap of Windermere’s Craft Beer Festival.
We’ve all seen the videos online of deer bowing their heads to people as they video them. But did you know they are bowing because they want what you have….food! I don’t know why they don’t all have huge necks from the amount of bowing that they do. I mean really……..it’s a lot!
One cool thing about traveling to other places is having people you know living there to give you a bit of the casual day feel about a city. This was exactly the case when we visited Nagoya. Of course when visiting friends they always want to take you to their favorite restaurants. Needless to say there will be lots of food talk in this one! The first place we stopped for eat was a little place we called Sumo Pig Restaurant. I also like to believe if I was a pig this would be how I look. Now the real name Misokatsu Yabaton and is a miso katsu specialty restaurant.
After a literal travel “around the globe” I made it to the Land of the Rising Sun. Miami to Doha = 14 hours. Overnight at The Pearl in Qatar. Doha to Tokyo = 10 hours. Two days of travel and every minute is worth it.
Did I think I would draw as much attention while walking the streets of Tokyo? No. I mean I did think that I would be stared at a bit seeing as I am, frankly, a plus size gentleman. Little did I know that it would draw the attention of television. Yep, you heard me. Shinbuya Station is the busiest intersection in the world. People sit up at a Starbucks across the street just to watch people….well walk. And it was there I became famous (so to speak).
What’s up peoples? Long time no chat. We have been busy jet setting, limousine riding, wheeling and dealing! Not really but I have been traveling a lot and finally have some down time to share the adventures with all of you.
