Welcome to the Travelman Podcast! I hope everyone is feeling great today and if you’re like me and you’re from Southern Hemisphere then all you probably want is to see winter done and dusted.
So, join me for a very appropriate podcast as I’m bringing spring a few weeks forward and I’ll be discussing cherry blossoms in Japan with my brother Patrick. He’s a guy that knows a lot about Japan, and maybe not so much about blossoms although he always loves seeing all the flowering trees, he’s not much of a green thumb.
I loved hearing his story about when Pat and his lovely wife Zoe went Go-karting around Toyko and Zoe accidently bumped into some Korean guys!
