Hey Duders!

So I'm looking to make my first foray into the world of International travel (having only experienced Caribbean cruises and shorter trips to Mexico from the US) specifically looking to hit up Japan. I was wondering if any more seasoned travelers had some advice on the best way to go about planning a trip like this.

We know that we want to hit up several cities, Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka for sure, with an interest in seeing a variety of sites both historical and more pop-cultural. Is a travel package the best way to do this? Or is it better to try and do things more ad hoc? Any links or advice would be greatly appreciated! We're looking at Autumn of 2016 so I have some time to plan and put away money for the trip. Thanks in advance!

Nutella on toast, or just some cheese and italian meat with crackers.

@Terramagi: Yeah I thought about it but thought it would be a bit on the nose, but well the message seems lost to most people here so I figured if you bludgeon hard enough it might get heard over the shouts of but he said it first...didn't work in 3rd grade doesn't work here either. It was also just a nice excuse to drop some Ralph Waldo bombs.

To everyone talking about how this term was used by the press before and people didn't yell so now no one can complain...how do you deal with that cognitive dissonance? Because black people used to sit in the back of the bus that is how it should always have been? Women didn't have the vote for a long time and no one complained so how dare they complain now? Holy Hypocrisy Batman! People realized that they did some gross things and are now trying to fix it!

I really don't understand this weird love for consistency of thought that seems prevalent in society, as if changing your views based on new situations is a bad thing...it really brings to mind a quote as true today as when first penned "A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds" ~ Emerson

So I'm trying to get into watching SC2 and I caught some matches on twitch today that were on ESV and it looks like something I could get into especially until football season kicks off but there are so many channels that it's a little daunting trying to separate the wheat from the chaff. Any links to places that have good professional commentary would be much appreciated because without the commentary I get lost really quickly.

Same questions would apply to other eSports as well. Thanks in advance Duders.

No matter how many times I see this I'm still filled with a sense of awe.
