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 […]

My Sri Lankan Bucket List

By |September 7th, 2011|

Having spent a couple of months living and teaching in Sri Lanka, I feel I got to know the country quite well during my time there.  When not teaching over the weekend, I would set out with friends to explore what this amazing country had to offer.  In short I feel in love with Sri Lanka and […]

The time I got scammed, Sydney 2006

By |August 24th, 2011|

I probably didn’t have the best of timing when I arrived in Sydney looking for a job just 10 days before xmas. However come early January when my bank card was screaming at me due to exhaustion, I scored a job as a removals man … or so I thought.
The ‘chance’ meeting
I met my prospective employer […]

Guest Post: A career break – why you can’t put it off any longer

By |August 19th, 2011|

A lot of people put off taking their career break, for all sorts of reasons. They might want to stay in their job for a bit longer. They might want to wait until they’ve got some more money. It might even be waiting until the kids are older. But putting off your career break is […]

Photo Essay: Edinburgh

By |August 14th, 2011|

For her 30th birthday, I decided to take the girlfriend away for the weekend.  The chosen destination was Edinburgh, Scotland.  Only an hours flight from our native London.  Despite the girlfriend losing her phone we had a great weekend, one of the highlights being a walking tour of the city.  This is our tour in […]
