fuck you guys


#3

i thought you were going to North Korea


#4

I am but figured it was pointless to ask for recommendations as it’s a strict schedule while you’re there.

It’s gonna be FUN.

Self-pity bump

Been to Thailand and Bali. Was ace. That’s all. Climb a volcano. Get laid. Drink bintnag and buy a Bintang wife beater. Wear some shit around your wrist and not wear socks for 4 months. Stay out there for a year longer than expected.

Gonna be wicked bro.

is this for your jook of edinburgh award?

This is a tour of the East side of Asia, by the way. A tour of Asia would be a far bigger undertaking as any player of Risk would tell you.

Er, feel free to tell me to piss off but… why are you going to North Korea? I dunno, going on the government sponsored tour of one of the worst regimes in history for tourism just seems really off to me.

This tickled me.


#11

Also like how he bumps it then pisses off again.


#12

I tend to agree. I don’t really have a defence either. I just want to go. :neutral_face:


#13

No, I do not


#14

Fair enough. Enjoy the trip, looks amazing. I’m going to Ho Chi Minh next week so I’ll let you know if I have any pointers.

Thanks, that’d be great- enjoy!

And cheers Matt, I’ll take a look.


#17

I want to go to all of those places (including North Korea). How long are you going for?

I’ll tweet you to put you in touch with a friend of mine who’s just got back from China and Vietnam.


#18

When will you be in Tokyo?


#19

Cheers for that :slight_smile: I’ll be in China and North Korea for two weeks, South Korea for two, Japan for five and Vietnam for one.

@littleblimps I’ll be there between the 12th and 28th of Feb- do you live there?


#20

Yep, I’m in Nakano, west Tokyo so feel free to ask me questions.
To be honest I don’t think Tokyo is great for sightseeing, unless you like spending lots of money and going up tall buildings, but just hanging out and eating and drinking is a lot of fun.
