Recently we welcomed home our head designer Bobby from a month of travels. Here's a quick Q&A we had with Bob about his time away!
Where did your travels take you?
Me & the Wifey spent 12 days in Japan for a Christmas & NYE holiday. Travelling without kids is so much fun! (Bobby has a beautiful three year old daughter Zia). Then I jetted off to Europe for 10 days (London, Paris, & Amsterdam) with mom & dad. Travelling with parents is exhausting...they walk very slowly :p
Favorite destination?/ Why?
I grew up watching Anime and reading Manga comics. Most of my childhood heroes are from Japan, so the trip was a real geek experience for me. I love everything about Japan, the culture, the people and especially the food. We had an amazing culinary experience there, fresh sushi for breakfast everyday!
Best food / drink spot?
Food: Sushinomidori in Shibuya.
Definitely best sushi I have ever had, even better than the one in the Tsukiji Fish Market. Place opens at 11am, but there was already a line at 9am. We waited for almost 2 hours to get a seat, but it was totally worth it!
New York bar at Tokyo Park Hyatt
The bar from ‘Lost in Translation’ movie scene. One of my favourite movies of all time. Impressive views, top notch jazz entertainment and great cocktails.
Did you miss us back here in the office?
Yes, namely the Nespresso machine ;)
What destination(s) are you planning to tick off next?
Either New York or Turkey would be awesome
Pretty long story but I’ll make it short. Went for drinks one night in an Izakaya place. We had quite a big night. Running around Tokyo and taking selfie's in every corner. Next day, went to the train station to get a ticket and found out that wifey had lost her wallet. At least $1000 inside and of course some important cards. Went to the last place we had visited and it wasn't there. So we decided to go to the police station to report it. We were already feeling pretty hopeless but surprisingly they had found the wallet!!! Apparently someone found it on the street and handed it into the nearest police station. Really showcased a character the Japanese people are known for: honesty.
Welcome back Bobby!
