On Monday morning I went to a clothes place on Oxford street. Adele and I had been there before, but it was mad, so I wanted to get back there one morning. I bought some clothes for great prices - 2 pairs of dress trousers for the equivalent of $30NZ.... Read more >

Night out in Croydon

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 15 Jan 2009 | Views [151]

We had a lazy start to the day on Saturday. We stayed in bed til late and finally got up around 10.30-11am. My bro-in-law was up and ready to head out the door pretty quickly and said 'I'm off to Walthamstow to pick up a pregnancy test'. I said 'What? ... Read more >

Back to London

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 10 Jan 2009 | Views [149]

So I caught up with my old flatmate Joan in Inverness. We had lunch at hers, had a great chat, swapping stories from the last 4 years or so. Then she delivered me to the airport. And what a story that is!  Inverness airport!! Having travelled through ... Read more >

North Scotland!!

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 8 Jan 2009 | Views [185]

On Monday morning I arose at 5.30am - yes that would be 6.30pm for all you in NZ - to catch a bus at 6.20am (after walking in the dark through the snow underfoot), to catch a tube (underground trains for those of you uninitiated), to then catch a train ... Read more >

New Year Celebrations

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 5 Jan 2009 | Views [194]

So we've been hanging out in cold London. However, the silver lining was the fact that we had a great night on the Thames to see in the New Year. It was awesome - we climbed on the boat at 8.15ish and found a seat at a table next to the window. We met ... Read more >


AUSTRIA | Friday, 2 Jan 2009 | Views [569] | Comments [1]

The awesome thing about travelling in Austria is that they have these tourist cards in their cities. I've used them before in Salzburg and Vienna and so when we found that Innsbruck had them too, we decided to get one. So as soon as we got in on Saturday ... Read more >

Travelling to Innsbruck

AUSTRIA | Thursday, 1 Jan 2009 | Views [309]

Our trip to Innsbruck was very interesting. After talking to two information offices, checking the internet and our host, we figured that the time on the internet was a better bet and turned up to the train station at 10.00 rather than 10.50 that ... Read more >

Boxing Day

SLOVENIA | Tuesday, 30 Dec 2008 | Views [202]

We woke up to a magical winter wonderland on Boxing Day. It was wonderful! After breakfast we went out to the snow for some photos, snowball fights and to make a snowman. It was great fun! We headed down into the town of Bled to check out the lake, ... Read more >

Bled & Christmas Day

SLOVENIA | Friday, 26 Dec 2008 | Views [224] | Comments [1]

When we arrived at the train station, there was a taxi to take us to our accommodation. He had been organised by the host (though in hindsight and having now met the hosts, it's surprising that anyone was there to meet us!) and drove us the 4 or so ... Read more >

Well we finally flew out of London on Tuesday. We arrived in Ljubljana and after briefly dropping our bags in at our hostel, headed off to the town area. The town was alive! Everyone was outside having a good time - plenty of awesome lights, markets, ... Read more >

Ice Skating!

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 23 Dec 2008 | Views [195]

On Sunday it was my sister Adele's 27th birthday and so I bought her a session of Ice Skating at Hampton Court Palace. Hampton Court Palace is where King Henry VIII spent a lot of time while in England apparently. Now, between late November and early ... Read more >

Seems not a lot has changed in London since I was last here. I've been doing a bit of travelling around the place, checking out some of the places I used to frequent and, except for a few changes, like the odd building being pulled down (or finished ... Read more >

Flying to London!

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 18 Dec 2008 | Views [179] | Comments [2]

I thought that once you've booked your flight, although there may be a small change in your times, you'd generally stay with the same company and go through the same route - but apparently not! On Monday night, my bro took me to the hostel I was to ... Read more >
