Well you've all probably spoken to Becki either on twitter or at a London blogger meet-up, she's a erm ... social butterfly haha.  I jest, all round top chick and a great mate, she's none to shabby at a quiz either.  Sadly for us Londoners its not long now until Becki's off [...]

A year in travel blogging by numbers

By | June 18th, 2012|Travel|

It is June 2012 and by my reckoning that makes this wordpress travel blog about a year old.  One yeah in which I've learnt so much ... blah blah blah.  I wont bore you with my inner most thoughts about the blogging world.  I poured my heart out about my travel blogging worries 6 months ago and little has changed to [...]

Learning a new language for the 2012 Olympics

By | May 24th, 2012|Random/Funnies|

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.
