Top 5 WordPress plugins for a travel blog 2012

By |January 26th, 2012|

I like plugins, they are fun and offer me shiny things for my site, not too many of them though otherwise my wordpress site will be slooooooww, which I dont want.  So those I do install need to be worth it *flicks hair like in the tv advert.  Here’s the plugins that I think will add […]

If you havent seen The Office, the UK version not the US version, go watch it now and come back to read this later …

2011 in summary, and what 2012 may hold in store.

By |December 30th, 2011|

For someone who works the 9-5 I think I do ok in terms of seeing new parts of the globe each year.  Lucky for me that the company I work for lets me buy extra holiday too, so instead of 25 days annual leave, this year I had 35 days.  The royal wedding also afforded […]

I really have no idea what I’m doing but thanks

By |December 22nd, 2011|

So Xmas time pretty much marks the 6 month anniversary of this site.  The last 6 months have been cool, I’ve met some really nice people, both on and off line.  I’ve read and lot and written a lot.  Most of the articles and posts I’ve read have been pretty awesome, the stuff I’ve written […]

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 […]

Bungee Jumping or Sky diving

By |December 9th, 2011|

Bungee Jumping or Sky diving, which is it to be?  Both maybe?

So we save and we save and we save to go travelling, the 9-5, the unsociable hours, the graveyard shifts, whatever it takes.  We save our money and we get out, away from the crap and out into the world.  The saved cash serves […]

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 […]

2012 – University or a Gap Year?

By |November 24th, 2011|

Last week (well more like a month ago now that i’ve finally got around to publishing this, but i’m choosing to leave week in for dramatic effect) I received worrying if not entertaining news from my little cousin Ellie who is currently in her 1st year studying up at Nottingham University.  In its simplest state, […]

Sydney in a day

By |September 13th, 2011|

I lived/dossed in Sydney for the best part of 3 months between 2006 and 2007. In that time I think I got to know the place pretty well and would quite often just wander around the city, taking in the atmosphere whilst slowley cooking in my embarrassingly pale English skin.  There’s so many awesome things to see […]
