Around the World in 10 Days #10: Brazil

Wow! Hasn’t that 5 week event gone so quickly?? I don’t know if it’s due to my busy life at the moment or just these posts making the week’s go bye. So … This event has really recently gone and bags have been packed but we’re not finished traveling the workd over here with this being the final installment of this Around the World in 10 Days series.

We’ve definitely been on an adventure with the family through episodes ranging from the good, the bad and the ugly. I will have an overview post done for this series which should be up at the weekend 😉. Today we’re off to the country of carnival so get your maracas and your beach body out and get ready to shakey shakey shakey …

So … Enjoy your ride to Brazil … Continue reading


Around the World in 10 Days #9: Australia

Good day mates and welcome to our penultimate journey around the world with The Simpsons. We’ve had one heck of a journey and all with me snuggling into bed with my phone watching episodes and taking screenshots.

The Simpsons have had their fair share of Travel Episodes and i really enjoy seeing the family get up to their casual antics in different cultures and I think it’s safe to say I’ve learnt a lot of stereotypical information about each country: UK is snobby suited men walking around in their waistcoats, Ireland is just leprechauns and drunk children and India is Bollywood dancers – right? 😉

Well today we’re off to a stereotype heavy but a classic episode (IMO) so fasten your seatbelts and enjoy your ride to Australia!

Around the World in 10 Days #8: Japan

I’ve been without internet for a couple of days so sorry for the short lateness of this post …

First of all … PINCH, PUNCH, FIRST DAY OF THE MONTH! 😁 *sticks tongue out*

We’re nearly at the end and I think it’s quite sad. I’ve enjoyed this journey around the world with The Simpsons and I hope you have too. 

The Simpsons have gone all around the world in episodes that range from the good, the (kinda) bad and the ugly and I think the “Simpsons go to …” episodes have become such a major and enjoyable part of the show. So in this 10 part series we overview 10 episodes where the Simpsons travel to a different country and what content it could bring to The Simpsons Tapped Out.

In this 8th part to the series of 10 we analyse a pinnacle episode for this event due to it’s recent use in Act 2. Because of the majority of Act 2 items coming from today’s episode, this post may be briefer due to not much content left to analyse 😁. Ready? Strapped in? Anything from the trolley? 

So … Enjoy your ride to Japan …

Around the World in 10 Days #7: China

Hello globe trotting adventures! It’s Friday and that means it’s time for another Around the World in 10 Days post with today being the 7th in the 10 post series.

‘Travel episodes’ have become a big part of The Simpsons and a lot of them I thoroughly enjoy watching them BUT there is the odd, random, unmemorable or just boring travel episode. So far we’ve only had 1 that, in my opinion, was lacking compared to the rest and today we travel to China with the Simpsons family in a sweet but comedy lacking episode.

So … Enjoy your ride to China

Around the World in 10 Days #6: India

Hello globe trotting buddies and welcome to another “Around the World in 10 Days” post with last post hitting the midway mark. I started this at the beginning (ish) of this event and it ends one day before the event ends (how perfect!) and boy are they go quickly!

To view the first post (with series explanation) CLICK HERE

To view the whole series (so far!) CLICK HERE

Today we look at a travel episode that I thoroughly enjoyed when rewatching it. It’s a shame because it is often not looked at because of the underwhelming-ness (is that a word?) of the previous seasons. BUT with today’s look at “Kiss Kiss Bang Bangalore” we see Season 17 being a great one (with some great episodes out of the modern age).

So fasten those seatbelts and … Enjoy your ride to India

Around the World in 10 Days #4: Italy

Salve giocatori, spero che state bene e che siete pronti per un altro volo intorno al mondo. (I learnt that from LP😁) meaning “Hello tappers, hope you’re all well and you’re ready for another flight around the world” in Italian. Yep, that’s right. Pour some wine (don’t give any to Lisa 😉), toss some pizza and get ready for another Around the World in 10 Days journey.

So … Enjoy your ride to … Italy 🇮🇹🍕🍝

Around the World in 10 Days #3: France

Bonjour Tappers. Today I present to you another flight around the world in this new series to celebrate this awesome Destination: Springfield event. I am doing 2 posts a week (normally Monday and Friday) so here is the 2nd instalment of the week. I will be mainly sticking to a schedule of what countries we will visit in each instalment so to get ready for each post (Some weeks you will need shorts, some weeks you will need chopsticks and some weeks you will need your beach body because this event is truly global), here is a map of our 5 week journey:

So put on your buret, sharpen your accent and fling some garlic round your neck, for good measure, because we’re heading of to … France! 🇫🇷

Around the World in 10 Days #2: Ireland

HELLO tappers … tá súil agam go bhfuil tú go maith. Have no idea what I just said? Well, neither do I 😃. But according to many translation resources it means “I hope you are well” in … Irish (Gaelic). Yep that’s right we’re following Homer down an Irish pub this week in Around the World in 10 days.

Travel episodes have been a big part of The Simpsons and often provide a lot of cross continental content that would be awesome for Tapped Out so because of this Destination: Springfield event I thought it would be topical to start this series. Every Monday and Friday I will take 1 country, that The Simpsons have visited in a whole episode(s), and look at that episode – overview it, review it, look at content that could be added to the game from that episode and look at content in this event that came from that country.

So … Enjoy your ride to … Ireland 🍀

Around the World in 10 Days #1: UK

Yes, this did go live yesterday by accident so that is deleted. This is the correct post. Sorry 😁

Hello fellow travelling tappers. In the midst of this AWESOME event with the theme of international content I thought it would be a good idea to start a series lasting for this event length called Around the World in 10 days. There have been so many ‘Simpsons go to…’ episodes and the travel category is a favourite category of mine and I just love watching those types of episodes. 

So … I decided to pick 10 countries/places that The Simpsons have visited (I stayed away from USA and went international) and in 10 posts I will overview a 1 country/place in each post and go through the episode(s) where the Simpsons visit it – quick episode review, synopsis, content that they could have added with this event and content – from the episode – that they have added to the event.

To fit the 10 posts into this event span I decided to do 2 posts a week (apart from this week and the last week). A post will be up every Monday and Friday … a calendar will be done for next time. I’ll definitely try and stick to schedule but quite busy at the moment so a post might, rarely, be a day late 😁

So strap on your seatbelts and enjoy the ride as we head off to the United Kingdom for this post …
