Right. I’m off to Japan to sample all the delicious cuisine.
Actually, I’m going on a bit of a world trip, taking in three weeks in Japan, a month in Borneo, a few days in Singapore, a month in Australia, six or so weeks in New Zealand, and ten days in Fiji to cap it all off. I’m looking forward to some solo travelling and visiting friends in these scattered places. Any cheap food recommendations are very welcome.
Meanwhile, Jean and Rebecca, as well a mysterious new writer, will keep posting away here, so you won’t even miss me, you bastards.
However, we’re all going to take a couple of weeks off to recharge our batteries, but we’ll be back here posting away for the summer, from the week beginning May 14.
Thanks to the wonder of WordPress and the mystery of the internet, I’ve already written a number of posts to appear over the next few months, which Jean will post if still relevant. Because of this, it will almost appear as if I’m living happily in Ireland.
But I’m not. I’m far, far away, possibly in a jungle, so I might not respond to comments on my own posts, especially the controversial ones – hey! I leave for my holidays from Tuesday May 1, so I’ll be on holidays.
Still, I’ll post about some of my wilder or more interesting culinary adventures right here. I promise only to write about exciting stuff.
On a personal note, thanks to all our readers and commenters for the support and encouragement you give us. We particularly love when people comment on posts. Thanks to everyone who’s helped me get ready for my big adventure and has/will come to all my copious boozing and long goodbye events of late. I will miss my family and my friends but I think the adventure is worth it. I should be back on the old sod in September. Also, I’ll miss potatoes. That’s it, bye!
