Lists are fun to make. Lists are fun to write. Lists are fun to write about. I decided to make another “List” blog.
What makes me happy? That is always a good question. Many things of course make me happy and they make me happy to different degrees. I thought it would be fun to just sit down and make a list (sometimes humorous) about the various things that make me happy! These are not all Japan-related and are in random order (the first 2 are my top priorities though).
HERE WE GO:
1. My wife and son (of course that’s #1)
2. My family back in Canada (I am tight with my family)
3. Pizza (here in Japan I make it from scratch at home)
4. Polo Burger (at a pub called Polo Dog in Kobe)
5. Running early in the morning.
6. Running late in the evening.
7. Milk chocolate
8. Kettle chips (love crispy potato chips…just salted)
9. Harvey’s hamburgers (only in Canada)
10. BBQing on the back deck (can’t do that in Japan)
11. Castles (all over the place here)
12. The cool and crazy things I see everyday in Japan
13. Cold beer on a hot summer day.
14. Cold beer on a crisp Fall day.

By the way, you have probably already heard that I was a panelist last week in the Seoul Podcast. It was cool to hear today that the episode I was featured in and my You Tube channel were mentioned on the Japan Talk podcast!
A really great information video for anyone interested in traveling to or moving to Korea:
