I’ve written many times in the past about how I love to check out McDonald’s around the world but rarely visit McD’s at home.
I have a few reasons for visiting McD’s when traveling. The main reason is that I love to see what local menu-items might be available in each country. The other reason is that a visit to McD’s for Lucas is like a treat. We don’t really go at home but he loves getting a toy. Also they usually have free Wifi which comes in handy when abroad. (Surprisingly, the McD’s locations we visited around Japan did not have Wifi.)
Here are some countries that I’ve visited McDonald’s and wrote about: Continue reading A McDonalds Menu Item in Japan I’d LOVE To Try

On Wednesday, November 11 that changed when Mitsubishi launched the first Japanese-made passenger jet, according to CNN. Continue reading 1st Japanese Passenger Jet in 50 Years Debuts
I’ve written many times about how I like visiting odd and quirky museums.
Most recently, I visited the Waffle House Museum in Atlanta, GA. Some other museums of note that would fit in with odd and quirky would be:
- Odd Museums: Museums Dedicated to Ramen Noodles (I’ve been to two of these museums since writing the post. I mentioned them in my recap of Yokohama. )
- Meguro Parasitical Museum (written about in my recap of Tokyo)
- Not Your Usual Museum- Friet Museum- Brugge, Belgium
- The Mutter Museum: A Museum of Medical Oddities
- The International Museum of Surgical Sciences
- A Shocking Collection of Oddities: The Kunstkamera
- A Museum of Curiosities in Connecticut
- Visiting A Cat Museum & Cafe- St Petersburg, Russia
- Deutsches Currywurst Museum (written about in my recap of a quick visit to Berlin)
- This Might Be The Weirdest Museum Ever & I’d Love To Visit (We did recently visit this museum. I’ll probably write about it at some point…)
It seems like many strange and odd museums exist in Japan. Another one recently opened which I’d like to visit in the future… Continue reading One of the Strangest Museums Opened in Japan
A little over two years back, Kim, Lucas and I headed to Japan. While I had always wanted to go to Japan (I’d like to go everywhere!), it wasn’t a place very high on my list. However, the country blew me away and the trip greatly over-exceeded any expectations.
With Japan being a leader in developing technology, one thing that surprised me was the lack of Wi-Fi in public places and restaurants.
Well now there seems to be Japan Connected-Free Wi-Fi nationwide. Kind of… Continue reading Free Wi-Fi in Japan. Kind Of…
