A few chilled days in London. Very fortunate to be able to stay at Joe's Aunts, which is amazing and central to everything. A little bit of cat sitting for the very unique, and one off, cat William. Also visited Warner Brothers Harry Potter Tour; the studio where the films were made. Such a magical day. Most definitely took me back to my childhood (not sure about Joe though). The props used were amazing, especially the model castle of Hogwarts; such talented people.... read more

We decided to meet up with John & Mary and my parents at Pimlico at 11:00 on 20 June to go to Tate Britain. They felt comfortable to stay in Premier Inn of Stratford. However, they were a little cross that they were unable to see the post offices or post boxes near the hotel and Westfield City. My mother asked me to send the postcard for her son in Japan and I had to go to the post office in Wood Green. Having approached the destination from Pimlico, we found the statue of Millais, and took the memory photos. I wanted to show the grand façade of the front building of Tate Britain, however, the building work was carried on, and we were directed to enter from the middle of the building. My mother wanted ... read more

I visited the recent Picasso exhibiton and was priviledged to see many of Piccasos art that made him famous. The exhibiton was at the TATE on the embankment...nearest tube is Pimlico. The art pieces also included were the artists that were influenced by Picassos work.Lets face it...Picasso was as decadent as the jezabels of the world we find o every street corner giving head...the PAVLA CVECKOVAS OF society who use and abuse human emotion like its toilet paper. I once met a guy who actually met with Picasso as an art student. His name was Arthewek Tekle. I met him on a mission station near lilongwe in Malawi. He made us a traditional ethiopian meal and told us of his story meeting Picasso amongst other stories of how it was like serivng under Haille Sellassie and ... read more

Happy February All! Wow. I really can’t believe that it’s already February. With all of the traveling time really passes by fast and I feel like I’m still in December. Haha! I suppose I haven’t really written in a while, but London has so much to see it really doesn’t give you much time to be on the computer! At least I was pretty good about uploading photos on Facebook so you knew I was alive! At one point in my nine days in London I got an e-mail from my Mom: “Haven’t heard from you in a while…are you ok?” Well, London certainly kept me busy right from my first few hours. I got a little turned around when I was trying to find my hostel, but I eventually got there after about a half-an-hour ... read more

I say final preparations, but they're not really. I've not packed, I've not even booked every hotel yet. However, I know when I'm flying out on Sunday, so that's a start. When's my birthday? At BST 00:00 on 4th October, I'll be on a plane approaching Minneapolis. But I was born at 14:30 all those moons ago. So at BST 14:30 on 4th October, I'll be in Los Angeles, albeit at 06:30 in the morning, incredibly jet lagged. I'll party then.... read more

We had a relatively uneventful flight from LAX to London Heathrow (and really, aren’t those the best kinds of flights? ). Aside from the typical screaming baby and the lady behind me kicking the back of my seat once an hour just to remind me not to try and get TOO much sleep during the flight, it was an easy 9 hours. We even departed an hour behind schedule and still arrived in London almost when we were supposed to. Not bad for an airline who just asked their staff to work for free for awhile.(I’m talking about you British Airways!). I also learned this flight that if you ask for vegetarian (or any special) meals, you get your food WAY before everyone else. Win! Getting through immigration was quick and painless, as was baggage claim ... read more

Blog... Blogger... Blogged! First time blogger feeling a bit daunted, so you'll all have to bear with me :-) Let's start with the practical bits... A few facts for the uninitiated: Last day in my flat: 31st Aug 2008 Last day at work: 2nd Sep 2008 Leaving drinks: 5th Sep 2008 Leaving for Bangkok: 6th Sep 2008 Preparing for a trip like this isn't easy.... Trying to keep all the "to do's" in my head at once, it feels like it's about to explode. Really should make a list that's a little more detailed than "Arrange visas" and "cancel direct debits"... I'm sure I've forgotten so much. Oh well, one thing at a time - like finishing up everything at work, which is what I'm currently supposed to be doing... Much more exciting to think about ... read more

Just a brief entry, to let you know we've arrived in London. We love our apartment, and the location is good, too. We discovered several streets of restaurants, cafes, small stores, etc. just a few blocks away. Close to two tube stations, as well (Victoria and Pimlico). Tonight we ate at a great little restaurant in the neighborhood that I had read about--and it wasn't pub food, thank god--had wild mushroom risotto with truffle oil that was to die for!! The bummer is (and those of you following Wimbledon probably already know this) that although it cleared up here late this afternoon, and the evening was almost balmy, rain and thunderstorms are predicted for our entire stay here!!! Anyway, since internet is faster here, I thought I'd include some of today's photos. By the way, thanks ... read more

Written 27/11/08 but posted elsewhere Matt writes: After what, to most, must seem like an extraordinary amount of time from our previous post, I must offer you, the avid, or in some cases, painstakingly loyal reader, an apology, the size of which can only be proportioned to this un-excusable silence on both our behalves. We have, it seems, slipped somewhat on updating you on our worldwide adventure. But before I make that apology, I do have to at this point clarify that we made it back to England and we’re not (as some were lead to believe) stuck in the middle of a Vietnamese jungle, but thanks for your concern nonetheless. We’re getting away with this lack of ending to the story on a technicality, as technically speaking our journey hasn’t ended as yet - the ... read more
