I had some meetups in a month with same guys. We really enjoyed nice communication all the time. Here are these joyful moments...

on the 14th Oct,
I met Dominic/BRYGGEN for the first time. He asked me a lot about Japanese travel info before he come to Japan. He always said to me that "Thank you for your infos..." But I know that I just did reply about his questions. lol  That should be travel communication website:)  Dom is really friendly person. He wanted to learn Japanese habits,how to use chopsticks, how he behaves at the restaurant...OK,I'll teach him. He had his own plan at the day time. So I decided to meet him at night and looked for some nice places visiting at night.
We went to The sky tower at Umeda first day.

Ayano and Dom haha:)
I know that the place for couple.  I don't mind:D    After viewing Osaka city from top of the building,we went to the Fuugetsu which is famous Okonomiyaki restaurant in Osaka. Dom can't use chopsticks well but it was fun to see try hardly. Finally he could catch piece of Okonomiyaki:)   The funny thing is that my daughter and Dom have nice relation even they can't make conversations.  Dom,I'm sorry that I'm not good manner, I lost my one of chopsticks and we found it on the floor!! haha:D

On the 15th Oct,
I met Dominic again. We had some plans to go to nice place at night! That day I was taking him to Kaiyu-kan which is most biggest aquarium of the world. To visit at night was first experience to me too.

Kaiyu-kan@night
Yes,I wanted to come. They have some event at that period. Most interested in things are that we can touch some animals....no,reality we can touch the sharks. We have an expression that "the skin of shark" which means as you know the feeling is zarazara...! Yeah,that's true:(
We went to Yakitori restaurant after aquarium. I see that Dom do love to there! Because staff saying something always by cheer,and there was very vigor! We are talking a lot and make joking a lot...It was really fun time. I'm sure that his humor sense are fit with Osaka people. We progress friendship as real friend.

On the 16th Oct,
we have a meetup! There are Dominic and Ivan/asturjimmy and Imad/ubisama and Ayaka/Ayakam and I. Imad arranged his trip for the meetup! We never guessed that he can join us. Actually no one can believe I got phone call from him when he came near the place.

Mini meetup on the 16th Oct but was BIG fun!!
  I already know Dom on this time,so it made us more high joyful. We can make joke easily. A lot of laugh,a lot of talking...it was really nice meetup I think:)   We were interested in Ivan's travel. He came to Japan on his way to round the world trip. How he can make such a nice and long traveling,we really wanted to know. He talked about it to us with a romantic story too! Thanks,Ivan! We went to the Karaoke,and at last I and Dom went to the bar. Because Dom will leave to Tokyo next day. So it was our last meetup in this time! Sometime I got great friends in real life from this site, surely he is one of them. We have nice friendship. I will meet Dom one day over the world. Thanks,Dom!

On the 24th Oct,
Imad came back to Osaka from Tokyo.

Imad&I&Ayano@ Purikula
So we met again:) There were another TBs but couldn't make meetup together. Imad wanted to eat Yakiniku. I think it's original from Korea, but OK as Asian food!
After dinner we went to taking a Purikula:)  It's very famous Japanese photo machine! Of course I LOVE taking it:D  I think it was first time for him. But younger people can understand quickly, so Imad made decoration very well. It was very fun time even if short time. Thanks,Imad we had FUN time!

On the 5th Nov,
Ivan came back to Osaka for taking the ship to China again. Ivan contacted us and of course we had mini meetup again!!
I and Ayaka thinking of the restaurant always...for sure we want to bring them typical Japanese/Osaka restaurant. And we prefer to cheaper restaurant because they are almost way on traveling, we don't want high payment.

Ivan,Ayaka,Ayano,Me... Who ate so much?? Many sticks!!
Ayaka look for it very well:)
We went to the Kushi-ya this time. Kushikatsu also typical foods of Japan especially in Osaka. A one of unique things is we have to fry materials ourself at an our table.
It always fun time. We ate a lot,drinking a lot,laughing a lot...as usual.
I showed them that took the purikula with Imad. Ivan was interested in it! So we should take it again:D

We really enjoyed each time! What a wonderful the meetup with TravBuddies!! I met many TBs in a month at Vietnam,Paris and Osaka....It make me feel small the world:) I'm looking forward next one already!!
