The reason I'm so hungry for information


10 Apr 2004
In response to a question Frank asked in the "Chit Chat" Section....


I'm planning to travel to Japan this summer to research my travel writings. I'm not sure what I'm going to do with it after I write it, but for now it's just my excuse to go back there. I really like Japan and somehow I want to spread the word to others that they should go there. I'm thinking about teaching a class at the Experiemental College, but who knows.

Do you know who Rick Steves is? He's a local hero around here. Through his teachings, people learned that they could travel to Europe on a budget and now people do. Before he came along, a lot of people didn't think it was possible. I think Japan needs a "Rick Steves". I think people can travel to/in Japan for a lot cheaper than they do now and I hope to give them the information and encouragement to do it.

I hope to tailor my findings to appeal to a demographic the likes of recent college grads who have no money but have a desire for adventure and a willingness to sacrifice their comfort and go out of their comfort zone to get it(and of course anyone else who's interested).

Surprisingly, I meet a lot of people who say "I could never go there" when I tell them I've been to Japan. And my message is YOU CAN!"
Not yet, budd, but I think that'll be a good way of getting some of the info out. It'll take me a while to compile the data and I think I'm going to try to "recruit" others to go on info gathering missions in Japan, because I couldn't possibly get it all on my own. It'll be a work in progress, but right now the project is in its infancy. My first fact finding mission to Japan will be sometime this summer. It'll take time, but it's a labor of love.

This might be a silly question, but how does a blog work? 😊

Most of the time a blog is where a person write everything he/she wants about everything, it can goes from what is cat eat in the morning to more serious subject. I think it works just like a news site, the person post ツォnewsツサ but it contain only his taugh and opinion on whatever he/she wants

Here is a blog about a guy a know (in french) ; HERE
