Europe » United Kingdom » England » Greater London February 21st 2006

Geo: 51.5002, -0.126236It's my second day here and I'm ready and excited to head into London. I walked ten minutes to the Redhill train station and bought my daily ticket equivalent to AUD $25. The currency conversion doesn't seem to be working in my favour as this seems quite expensive. The train was very new, clean and the network seemed easy to navigate. It passed through many towns with many houses that are the same as their neighbours. I didn't have to change trains, as it went directly into central London.The train line ended at Victoria Station, this was a very busy, huge station with both the above and underground tr... read more

Europe » United Kingdom » England » Surrey » Redhill February 20th 2006

Geo: 51.2408, -0.170086Finally, after a long flight we are flying over London, the flight is early so we had to float about in the sky for 20 minutes! It is 6.30am and it is pitch black outside. When we did land at Heathrow, it was a bit bumpy and I wasn't impressed. I breezed through customs with my Italian passport, got a trolley to pile my luggage onto and headed out looking for Val, who I am staying with. Val is my Auntie Jacqui's cousin.

Oceania » Australia » Victoria » Melbourne February 19th 2006

Geo: -37.8143, 144.963Finally, the day has come for me to leave Australia for my great overseas year long adventure. I have taken a year of leave without pay from work, although after some travelling I will be working in London. I feel prepared. I know I have everything that I will need, but I do wish I could take more. My bags are at the maximum allowed weight and one walk around the billiard table is the distance that I can carry it, which is a bit of a worry. May have to offload some stuff when I travel around. Saying goodbye to everyone in the last few weeks was fun and have had some great nights out, thank-you!Just after take-off, we flew over Melbourne. I had a great view of this wonderful city on this ... read more
