This has to have been the most drunken leaving party. I met up in the evening with friends from Wokingham and I can just about remember most of it.
I started the night by meeting friends in The Tavern. It's a nice petite bar, long, thin and sometimes a little claustrophobic but with a nice garden area. It was raining but luckily managed to hide underneath some cover. After several we headed over to The New Rose. There we met more people and I lost count of the drinks. For some reason I agreed to go to the local night club - well, it was an old haunt after all, shame not to say goodbye to that place too. Mostly I remember my friends pulling silly faces for the camera and discussing my travel plans with the peeps.
A jolly good send off if I may say so. Wednesday I head for Edinburgh where the real journey starts. Fingers crossed I can find accommodation, there are three festivals all going on at once! But turning up and finding your feet is part of the fun (I hope!).
My name is Steve and I live in Berkshire in the UK. I was talking to Dad one day about amazing places and sights that must be seen before you die when it suddenly dawned on me. It had been 8 years since I started working for Rubicon and it was time to do something different.
So in April 2006 I decided I would go travelling around the world and so far I've visited Scotland, India, Thailand and Laos, Vietnam, Cambodia and Australia. Keep up to date with my travels by subscribing to my travel blog. See you round the world.
