Lava Fields and Ghost Towns – A couple if Gems in Japan’s Northern Honshu

Japan's Iwate Prefecture offers some really interesting and different kinds of places to visit - from hardened lava below Mount Iwate to an abandoned mining town. Today I also talk a little about the town of Kesenumma which was badly hit by the 2011 tsunami.

Talking Cruise & Travel Interview with Anna from ‘The World of Cruise and Travel’!

YES new exclusive interview today! And today it's with Anna Koss from Germany, who runs the blog 'The World of Cruise and Travel', which as the title suggests, is about travel and indeed the world of cruising. I discovered her blog earlier this year and have really enjoyed her posts. It's great to learn a bit about the world of cruises. 2020 has not been kind to the cruise industry, with images of cruise ships being broken up being shown on the news here lately, but one day (we all hope) 2020 will be a distant memory, and cruises will be back. A good friend of mine used to work on cruise ships and loved it. So it's great to get a little bit of opinion and more about cruises - I have NEVER been on a cruise in my life by the way! So anyways, I'm sure you'll enjoy my interview with Anna Koss!
