I set up this blog as something fun to do and while it brought me joy, it is time to move on to something else due to many reasons. I won’t get too much into the specifics, but after a lot of thought and time, I have decided to close down this blog and stop posting to it.
Instead, I have started a new blog Matt of Mind which will host all of the travel blogs from here, along with new material in several different topic areas. If you could, please give the new blog a follow, it would be a great deal to me.
While this may seem abrupt, it has been on my mind for some time and after the holiday and much thought, I decided to make the move. I can’t thank you all enough for reading the blog, sharing, interacting, and helping it grow in the past year. I have learned a lot and had a lot of fun along the way, but it time for something new and something that I feel I want to put my full heart and focus into.
I hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving Holiday (for everyone that celebrates the holiday). I will be taking the week to travel and visit family for the holiday so the blog (and likely social media) will be fairly quiet until I return and get back to blogging. While I love to write, spending time with family and relaxing is more fun (and much needed). So enjoy the holiday and stay tuned for new blogs in about a week!

Time for another restaurant review and this one is quite different, Suke 6 Diner. Suke 6 Diner is a small diner located in Asakusa that feels more like a California spot than a small café in Japan.

As I stated in an earlier post, I haven’t been on a plane since the pandemic began back in 2020, so going through security and boarding a plane was all a new experience for me in the era of Covid. But what is different on the planes these days? Here are a few things I noticed on Southwest.
