Week 34: Crossing the Chanel and Brussels

BELGIUM | Friday, 11 Nov 2011 | Views [525]

The reason I didn’t just come to Europe for an extra long holiday combing tours and independent travel was that I wanted to spend time in different cities so that I could get a feel for the place. With limited time and limited funds I decided to go ... Read more >

Week 33: Last week in London

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 31 Oct 2011 | Views [323]

A couple of months ago I wrote about trying and trying again until you succeed and though the week had barely begun I felt like a hypocrite. Here in London they’ve had a number of film premieres and after my failed attempt at seeing the Harry Potter  ... Read more >

Week 32: Which is about nothing

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 28 Oct 2011 | Views [292]

The Queen wandered around my home country last week which I suppose it was only fair after I’ve been wandering around her home country for the last couple of months. Hearing about the Queen’s visit from a British point of view really makes me wish we ... Read more >

Week 31: Where I ironed tablecloths and folded napkins

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 23 Oct 2011 | Views [493]

London is very deceptive in autumn. When I see a sunny clear day where the leaves are still green on the trees I automatically think it’s warm outside but that is not always the case. After leaving the house several times with only a jacket and then ... Read more >

Week 30 which was spent being bored

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 14 Oct 2011 | Views [467]

The most brain power I use all week is thinking of what to write in this here journal. When I’m actually travelling  it’s quite easy to write about the places I visit but when I’m in London, well sadly enough London’s like base camp for me, and there’s ... Read more >

Week 29: Where I went to visit the Queen and to see a King

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 3 Oct 2011 | Views [378]

After whinging about how the weather always turns cold when I come back to London, the clouds decided to spite me and disappear for most of the week and the autumn weather was a lot warmer than it has been all summer. Now I finally understand what ... Read more >

Week 28: The Great Walls of China

CHINA | Tuesday, 27 Sep 2011 | Views [497]

Walls are built for two reasons either to keep things out or to keep things in. In most cases they are built for keeping out like burglars, sticky beaks or invading armies. The latter of course being the reason the Great Wall of China came into existence ... Read more >

Weeks 27 and 28: Impressions of Beijing

CHINA | Sunday, 25 Sep 2011 | Views [393]

My initial impression of Beijing was that it was one of the cities that I built whilst playing Sim City. In fact they even have congestion signs to warn drivers how busy the roads up ahead are going to be – if they haven’t figured it out after 10 mins ... Read more >
