Episode #128 The Thrilla from Manila

In today's episode we explore the city of Manila in the Philippines
Taste some Red Horse beer
and learn about what it's like to travel to the Philippines for work


We were super exited to have Andrea's spouse Justin join us to share his stories of travelling to the Philippines for work. We learned a lot about the area Justin visited, and it made us want to taste so many new things in the future.

We talk about items to search out like Red Horse beer (which Aaron didn't enjoy sadly), Halo Halo, Gising Gising, Jeepneys, Jollibee, and Fort Santiago.

We hope you enjoyed this episode, and would love to hear your thoughts. Please reach out to us on our Facebook page, or send us an email to fans@travelbyproxy.com

We look forward to seeing you next week, as we discuss Keepsake Cidery.

Episode #127 Japanese Candy Edition

In today's episode we explore an Anime Convention 
Taste some Japanese candy
And discover what it means to drink pure sugar water

In further reading about Kit Kats in Japan, we found that there have been over 300 varieties created for the Japanese market and you can purchase some of the different flavors in variety packs on Amazon.

Nara Dreamland seems to still have a lot of interest in it even since its closure and eventual demolition, you can read about its history in more depth on the Wiki.

And since we feel pretty bad for not remembering the name of the dog that had a statue put up in its honor, so we found the Wiki for Hachiko.

And the photo for this episode comes from Aaron's time at the Missouri Botanical Gardens, and it is a view of the beautiful wooden bridge in the Japanese garden area.
