So, this is the last of our non-Japan related videos. Now that we’re back in Japan, we’re going to get back to food videos, as well as our Eat Your Sushi episodes. But for now, here’s what we did in Las Vegas, Utah, and Arizona!
What we wanted to do on this trip to the US was disconnect from the internet for a bit. We’re living in Tokyo, a megapolis, and we spend all day on the internet. While both are super awesome in many ways, it’s great to step out of what you’re used to every once in a while for some refreshing perspective. So instead of somewhere densely populated, we went to places completely unpopulated. Instead of checking our YouTube comments every hour, we went three days without the internet. THREE DAYS THAT’S CRAZY FOR US! And we didn’t want to take any video footage, but we can’t really help ourselves, so we just shot some fun stuff instead of thinking of our usual videos.
We did, however, take lots of pictures. Here’s some of them.
Can I just say, I never thought of America in terms of natural beauty. My ideas of what America is like come mostly from TV, so I always think of either busy cities and Hollywood, or small towns and tiny diners. But the Zion National Park was something I had no idea about, no expectations for, and we were stunned. Absolutely stunned. And then renting a houseboat and going on the waters of the Glen Canyon: I didn’t know anything like that existed. Empty still waters and giant stark rocks. No wildlife. No people. It was unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I loved it. America: I’m so sorry I didn’t know how beautiful your country was.
I’d say more about Las Vegas, but we really didn’t spend that much time exploring it. We shot some guns, and then we went to the Bellagio, and then after that we packed our stuff for our trip. When we came back we had one day, and we pretty much just spent that repacking for our flight back, and then we went for Korean food, which we shared a picture of. And that’s about it. Sorry, Vegas. We were in you for just a little bit. Maybe next time we can explore more of you :D
Hey! I just realized that I forgot to mention how we rented the houseboat. Someone on YouTube asked so I figured I’d edit the post and add this in. We got them from Forever House Boats. The service was great. They were comprehensive and helpful and taught us all we needed to know to not die. We had a great time. Would definitely do it again.
Otherwise, we’ve got some extra scenes, if you feel like some more. Check em out below!
