Autumn Colors in Kyoto and Nara

In early December I had a chance to check out the autumn colors in both Kyoto in Nara. Living in Osaka made it very convenient to visit these cities.

Petronas Towers, Kuala Lumpur

Kuala Lumpur and Malacca, Malaysia

After the Malaysian MotoGP, I made quick stops in the capital city of Kuala Lumpur, and Malacca, a picturesque city on the west coast. I found KL to be much more modern than I expected. In many areas it is similar to Singapore. The prices are much cheaper thought, as alcohol is about 1/3 of the cost compared to its more expensive neighbor.

Malaysian MotoGP

MotoGP Race in Sepang, Malaysia

One of my favorite activities during this long trip has been attending sporting events around the world. About a month after attending the Singapore Formula One Grand Prix, I had the chance to go to my first live MotoGP race in Sepang, Malaysia.

6 Weeks of Relaxing in Singapore

I wanted to come to Singapore for only one week, but I ended up staying for a total of 46 days. How did this happen?

Singapore Grand Prix

Formula One Weekend in Singapore

I’ve been a F1 fan since the Senna days. Even before I left for this long round the world trip in 2014, I knew for certain that I would want to attend the 2015 Singapore Grand Prix.
