MapG'day ya'll,
firstly sorry that this has taken so long, secondly when you see "Internet access" on a hostels booking website expect a computer made of wood that is constantly busy!
right to where to start!!! i guess the first place to tell ya about is Osaka............................- .................................- .................................- .........
.............................- .................................- .................................- ........rrrright! OK, so in a nutshell don't go to Osaka!! me and Adam didn't do much in Osaka, in fact while we where there we went to Kyoto instead of hanging out there! i wouldn't say it was a bad place it just was not very exciting, think the neon city in blade runner! but hey! Kyoto was cool got to see the old imperial palace and some really cool little gardens and understood the whole feng shui thing!!! what we will, I'm sure take away from the whole experience is the fact that the hotel was called hotel kinki! (HAhAHA) phew sorry very immature i know. right well remember how lady luck just shat on our heads with the whole purple bun fillings??? well when it rains it pours! we soon realised that in order to make out nine o'clock flight in the morning to Singapore we would have to leave the night before and pull a tom hanks in the terminal (cept no zeta Jones, sadly) and sleep in the chuffing airport for ten hours! so with an extra bounce in our step Adam and i left Osaka japan for the wonderfully and recently made famous for sinking into the ocean (lady luck) Osaka international airport! all was going well for the first five hours...little backpack for pillow and big backpack for footrest, even got a few hours sleep! but we soon got a reality check courtesy of the fine people of the japan police dept. three intimidating as F*CK policemen came up to myself and addz and gave us a wake up call. no breakfast in bed and welcoming smile sadly...just the lovely words "ID and boarding pass please....!"
so, anyway after the cavity search (kidding) we soon got on our plane and said our goodbyes to JAY-PAN and hello to SINGA!!
Singapore was in a nutshell quality and cheap as you like! you can eat a hearty meal at a nice restaurant for about 6 quid! everyone spoke English (goodbye lost in translation) and it was all good! we stopped in a place called "the cosy backpackers hostel" and let me tell ya i wasn't just a clever name! really cool little place that granted was a dive in comparison to what we'd previously stayed in but was really more of a backpackers place!

gotta leave it there sadly as i have to be back at the house in Sydney as one of the house mates there, Chloe is leaving for home so i wanna say goodbye, but don't fret I'll finish this letter tommoza! till then take care and look forward to hearing from ya!
lemar and Adam
