We're starting a new series of blog posts called: Meet A Bad Tourist!

Between long plane/train/bus rides, hostels and CouchSurfing, we meet a variety of interesting people with fascinating stories. It's one of the best parts of traveling. Becoming friends on Facebook helps us to keep in touch with and remember them, but we decided an interview would be even more exciting!

Discussing their background, crazy travel stories, or general day to day life is a fun opportunity to examine life from someone else's experiences. We know there's a bad tourist in all of us so it's time to meet some of them! The first interview you can expect in a couple days…

Meet Issei: Gay in Tokyo, Straight in Kyoto.
