San Diego :)

To keep my baby happy, this is just a quick note to say that I arrived here safe and sound, met a large group of people who I will hopefully be living with. Accommodation is VERY hard to find. Place is AMAZING, it is exactly like you see on TV. Lots of surfers and were staying in a surfer town. I have loads of photos I will update this site when I have more time. I just found out the library has free wireless internet, so Im sorted. Tomorrow or the next day Ill have a full update.

Miss Sarah and Buttons and Jennifer and my family and friends very much. Jen, if I call, please PLEASE answer.I need to wish you good luck.

Talk soon.
Livin’ it up in the SD.

Hamburg Whamburg

At the harbour

Just a quick post to update myself really and post some photos from hamburg and test a few new features of the site. (Especially the “See Dave feature”. Read more for details 🙂

Had a deadly time, learned how to get up early, learned that I dont “really” like techno and learned that I am almost fluent in German. Thank fuck. Redlight districts, gits in git masks getting off on my innocent shock, talking to strangers, learning a lesson, learning what hitler doesn’t look like and of course bottling out of a dance off. Overall, I think I’m going to like living in Germany. Read the full story

J1 Summer, here I come.

OK, I’m a little late, but I can now confirm that my J1 Visa has been approved, my passport has been stamped, and my flights have been booked! Now, I can let myself get excited.

I fly out on the 31st of May at 6:30 in the morning. Lovely. Hit London for 6 hours, then to Washington. Stay there for another 4 hours and then on to San Diego for some …ehhh, sun, sea, sand and some desperate looking for a house and a job. Read the full story

We're all going on a summer working holiday!

Finally, I have my J1 Visa application filled in, my deposits and embassy fee paid and my excitement bottle filled! After months of deliberation, I have scratched my proverbial foot.

The hardest choice was where to go, and after a lot of thinking, and considering I have already had a taste of the big, slightly dirty, apple, I have decided on California. Where in Cali you say? Nope, not O.C (An Toe-See) but San Diego.

…they namedit San Diego, which of course in German means a whale’s vagina

My Bags are not quite packed yet, but preparations are in order and savings have begun. And I will finally get to open a US bank account. 🙂 I would like to thank all those at USIT for their incredible support with the J1and genuine passion for their customers too 😉

More information as I get it. And hopefully my brief visit to China last year will not go against me in my interview. Thanks for watching.

Happy XMAS


Just want to wish all my readers, (RSS subscribers…you know who you are) friends, family and people I have met all along my travels, a very very happy holiday season and a wonderful new year.

My adventure continues in the new year, (If you can call it that) and the site will have a brand new engine behind it, WordPress 2.0. I have waited a long time for it, and a few more days wont hurt. I will also be spending a week spell checking my posts over the past year.(Those Asian keyboards are at fault, not me!).All destinations have now been confirmed and I will update you with my 2006 shortlist very shortly.(And God knows my plans should change as usual!) Have a great Christmas and super 2006!

A local town for local people


London! (In a tubs accent). So we got our flight OK and after not one hitch we made our way to Stansted, blah blah, on the train and arrived somewhere in the middle of London.

Out of the “East end” exit for novelty purposes and we were on our way. Wandering around for a while waiting and killing time, we finally got a phone call from Rosin (Antos Aunt who we were supposed to be staying at). Read the full story

And they're off!

In exactly one hour I leave for London. Feel strange, even though its such a short time. I still find time to post this! No, I can’t stay away from Jessica 😉

So anyway, I’ll keep you all updated. Girls, behave yizzerselves Saturday night!

Buh Buy.

London BABY!

I woke this morning to a letter being shoved in my face. “Your ticket came!”. Finally, after weeks of dossing around on EBay I managed to secure myself a ticket to see League Of Gentlemen live in London with the Poontang and the Bean.

Major rave up the weekend, and of course the sightseeing. Can’t forget the sightseeing.

Although this is my second time in London, it will be the first time outside the airport actually IN London. Fun and games are likely to ensue. Just knowing I will be on a jetplane this Friday is enough to ease the Travel Virus.

Not that anyone reads this, but watch this space. I finally get to add some photos again!

Itchy Feet

What is it about the travel bug? Is really a bug or a phycological retardation? Why doesn’t it go away?

Usually, problems, maladies, guilt, etc. they ALL go away after time. This one gets worse. And it’s finally consumed me. Plans are in motion. In motion.

Home sweet home!

OK. I am finally home. Finally. The trip certainly was an adventure and I have so many people to thank for the help and support along the way…. but thats another story.

As promised, all wordpress help and mods I performed, especially on the design and integration with bbpress will be dealt with on my other site.

Pop on over and take a look. Its all free!
