30 facts for 30 years

By |April 6th, 2014|

So today is the day, the big three zero.  Yup, I am now 30 years of age.

It is for 3 of those 30 years that I have been blogging on this here site, documenting travels and blogging triumphs/failures.  My style has varied from time to time, but my spelling remaining steadily terrible.  I like to […]

Festive TV inspired travel: If I could travel anywhere, anytime, anyhow, with anyone and anything

By |January 2nd, 2013|

The bathroom scales scream at me in utter agony as I gingerly lower just one chocolate and turkey filled toe of my ever expanding mass onto the foot-shaped plate.  I have been a little naughty this festive period, more so than usual.  I wont lie to you, for past few days I’ve […]

Travel Regrets – My Top 3

By |December 13th, 2012|

 “I regret travelling around the world; I wish I’d stayed home instead,”
… said no-one ever.

The open line to my friend Simon’s recent post entitled My biggest travel regrets.  You probably know Simon, he runs a super sweet blog over at http://www.manversusworld.com.  If you don’t know the fine fellow to which I am referring  or his blog, shame on you!  I […]

Learning a new language for the 2012 Olympics

By |May 24th, 2012|

The artist that is Dan of AdventureswithDan.com recently wrote an interesting article about how he’s sometimes an ignorant traveller, as no doubt we all are at times.

Being British, I think its generally (and wrongly) anticipated that wherever we go, someone somewhere within our chosen destination will at least have a very basic grasp of the English […]

How to behave on the London Underground.

By |January 23rd, 2012|

As fares rise AGAIN in 2012, the London underground is obviously the place to be. The most luxurious and time efficient transport system in the world will have you whizzing around England’s capital city of London in no time at all, and all for just a teeny tiny fortune … per day. It’s a place […]

How not to impress a girl whilst on the road

By |January 16th, 2012|

I’m am not what you call a ladies’ man, I’m not the hunchback of Notre-Dame (nice bloke), but I’m far too geeky and awkward to smooth talk a piece of plain white bread, let alone a member of the opposite sex.  On occasion however a female has been known to be of sufficient drunkenness to […]

Goon – the Australian ‘delicacy’ and backpacker right of passage

By |January 13th, 2012|

Last night I went to see Goon at the cinema. Its about a fella who’s not the brightest, but who has decent morals and an amazing ability to punch people and make them bleed … honestly, other than fighting on ice hockey rinks he appears to be a very sound fellow.

For the last month or so i’ve been […]

Seat hogs YOU SUCK!

By |December 20th, 2011|

When flying I’m a window seat kinda guy.  I look to look out at the cloud passing by, and I also like that I can rest my bonce on the airplane wall (the so called headrests only come up to around my lower back area they’re so small). If I can get a window seat […]

You sound like you’re from Laandan (London) – Stereotyping Languages

By |December 1st, 2011|

I like the favourite button on twitter, I tend to use it as a bookmark and highlight articles I haven’t got the time to read at that very moment, but would like to read at a later date. One such article I highlighted the other week was by the rather cool @PckYourPassport, who currently resides […]
