The Big O.E

The further east you go, the cheaper the beer gets...

POLAND | Sunday, 25 Sep 2011 | Views [669]

Day 4 - Prague, Czech Republic. We got up early to catch our train to Prague, a four and a half hour journey and the Dutchies were still not back. I guess that meant that they got in somewhere. We had said our goodbyes the night before, just ... Read more >

And... we're back!

GERMANY | Thursday, 22 Sep 2011 | Views [490]

Right, thought I'd start using this again, now that I have some traveling news. Day 1 - Berlin. Got the flight to Berlin without any real incidents and touched down about 6pm. The German train network is pretty efficient and although not ... Read more >

Brighton and Tate Modern.

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 6 Apr 2010 | Views [535] | Comments [1]

Brighton - early Jan. As I mentioned in my last posting, Anna and I went to Brighton in January and it kicked arsed. It was a spontaneous trip. It was a pretty uneventful morning when I suggested we take a day trip there. Within an hour, ... Read more >

Golly gosh, old chum! It's been a while!

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 23 Mar 2010 | Views [394]

Hi guys! It's been a while since I've updated this so I thought I'd best bring you all up to date and write it all down for posterity. I don't know what posterity means, and I'm too lazy to type the nine words it'll take me to input google's search engine ... Read more >

Merry Christmas, all

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 23 Dec 2009 | Views [601]

Tried to upload this blog last night but my browser crashes, so my Hemmingway-esque prose was consigned to the annals of cyberspace static. Or something. Well, have finished doing what minimal Christmas shopping I had to do. A bit expensive to send ... Read more >

Greetings all

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 8 Dec 2009 | Views [446] | Comments [1]

Hey all,  Well, it's pretty grey this time of year now. Still a bit tough getting used to the day being dark at 4pm, but that's England for ya. Not really a lot to report, I suppose. I've been looking for work now that my website is up and running ... Read more >

Evening all, Have been doing quite a bit of house-hopping of late, after Notting Hill, I went stayed in a couple of hostels in the city, a part of an experiment to see what it would be like to live in them for a while and also to give my mates a bit ... Read more >

Hanging out with Hugh and Julia in Notting Hill.

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 1 Oct 2009 | Views [353]

Not really. But I am in Notting Hill and I have to say, if I could afford to live here, or if I thought I was cool enough, I'd definitely live in Notting Hill. You see, if you walk down Portobello road, you'll see some of the coolest people wearing ... Read more >

Two journal posts in one day? Wonders will never cease!

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 23 Sep 2009 | Views [608] | Comments [2]

Forgot to mention a few things in that last posting. Thursday 17th: I caught up with a friend Michelle from Verdon. Hadn't seen her for about 13 years so it was good to find out what had been going on with her and her friends since the Verdon/Uni ... Read more >

Still in London - job hunting time

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 23 Sep 2009 | Views [574]

Hey guys,  No updates recently because I haven't done a lot lately! It's pretty good having lots of free accomodation as I housesit my friends places. The downside is that I'm house-sitting on my own which means having to talk to the voices in my head.... Read more >

Clapham, Theatre and Regents Park

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 25 Aug 2009 | Views [564]

Right, so currently I'm staying Clapham after a week in Raynes Park. Tim and Kelly are away so I have a bed, which makes continues my pretty good run of sleeping spaces. So far, I'm yet to really sleep on couches very much at all. Nice. Haven't done ... Read more >

Nothing much to report, but I did play some cricket

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 14 Aug 2009 | Views [241]

So yeah, haven't really done much lately. Funds are slowly decreasing although I have been keeping an eye on them lately. The good exchange rate (1.97 to 1 the other day!) means my dollars go a bit further. All I've really been doing is looking after ... Read more >

Rye and London

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 3 Aug 2009 | Views [579]

Ahoy me hearties, Monday: On Sunday night, got a text from an old friend from Invercargill, Mike Gane. We used to live on Anglesey street and play heaps of cricket together. Anyway, he was taking an early morning trip to Rye, a small and extremely ... Read more >

Edinburgh, then back to London

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 28 Jul 2009 | Views [467]

So Edinburgh was pretty cool. Lots of fat people, everyone smokes, and everything is deep fried. Luckily Steve's a good cook, so I ate pretty well. Monday: Took a walk around Edinburgh city and a typical rainy Scottish summer day. The most annoying ... Read more >

Scotland. More specifically, Edinburgh.

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 19 Jul 2009 | Views [410]

Ahoy, me hearties.  Not a lot has happened since Spain. I went back to London, stayed at my mate Tim's house in Islington and ate more than my fair share of gourmet hamburgers. Lots of nice places to eat in Islington and I found a great place called ... Read more >

La Linea and Gibraltar

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 10 Jul 2009 | Views [490]

Saturday - early start, getting up before 7am and took the train to a Algericas which is very close to La Linea, where Ian's grandparents live. The train wasn't as nice this time and had strangers sitting either side of me. Long trip (five and a half ... Read more >

Barthelona, Valenthia (sic) and Madrid

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 10 Jul 2009 | Views [542]

Friday 26 June - Roasting day today, for a change (!). We kicked off the day around 11 or 12 and headed in toward Gaudi's La Sagrada Familia cathedral. It's quite a touristy spot there with queues stretching around the corner to get inside, so we ... Read more >
