So, were you really there?

Remember how the first Apollo moon landing was faked by NASA, filmed in a big studio in the Californian desert? As a single traveler, how do I get real proof that I actually saw and did what I said happened?

Losing my wallet comes naturally, so everyone believes that one. Many Visa Card debits in Yen are a pretty fair indicator. So are trinkets like dated Kawasaki Frontale hand-fans, or used JR tickets.

But the real proof are photos of me at various and minor sights, some of which are instantly recognizable.

Enjoy. Look at the Gallery and say “this is Tony at…….”

For the technically minded, I use a cheap 4 year old Canon Power Shot A480. This trip I discovered the ‘timer’ option, as well as the ‘black and white’ option. What an expert!

About TonyJ2

I live in the Blue Mountains west of Sydney, New South Wales, Australia. I started writing stories about my trips to Japan largely to be able to print them out for my Mum to read. Now it has got a bit out of control. After nine trips, 100+ posts and another 200 in rough draft, my irregular postings on Having a Ball in Japan will go on for a few years yet. Having a Ball in Japan is not just a bunch of travel photos, and picks up my interests in the history and culture of Japan, emergency services and disaster management, as well as hours travelling by railways big, small and tiny. Awareness to Action takes the emergency services and disaster management theme deeper into experience and resilience. Effectively Awareness to Action is my professional blog. My partner and I have been lucky enough to do a fair bit of travel both in Australia and overseas. Escaping the Nest chronicles our times in United States, France, The Netherlands, Belgium, Italy and soon to be Ireland. Tony

  1. Love the photos. Wish I’d been with you but someone had to keep the home fires burning.
