Roho: It's the blog you've all been waiting for! Well, not really, it's the update some of you have been hassling us for. We're back in London now so plenty of time to update everything. So last time you heard from us we'd just arrived in Madrid... Rich: It was Rohani's job when we got off the bus to walk us in the direction of our hotel. Yet again, we walked the wrong way. Thankfully this time it was only two to three hundred metres in the wrong direction. Roho: Firstly, you tend to work your route out from the Busabout hostel, which is the 'drop off point'. But the bus almost never stops at the hostel. So when the bus stops a five minute walk from its hostel you have to start all over again. ... read more

Roho: Brrrr! Rich: Yes, lesson learnt. Roho: Get bigger backpacks? Rich: You should never underestimate how hot or cold it can be in we found out at the weekend. Roho: I never underestimated the weather...hello, who's my Daddy? I overestimated the capacity of my backpack for more than one jersey! So why don't you start with Saturday...? Rich: Our first stop was the Tower of London. This was to be a whirlwind tour, as time was against us with so much to see. The Crown Jewels were absolutely phenomenal and were worth the nearly 60% off it cost us to get in, as Rohani will explain.

Roho: So flying long haul sucks even if you thought you were smart to break it up halfway in Singapore for a week. And for the gateway to the Middle East for an extremely popular and otherwise very lovely airline, Dubai Airport is a heap of shit. Rich: Mainly due to the showerheads next to the toilets - I mean what the hell are you supposed to do with those things? Roho: Wash your....self, I would think...but I didn't think you even got to see the toilets because of the filth? I didn't get near the toilets because of the queue! Rich: I had to queue too - for the first time in my life! I walked in, saw the water all over the floor of my toilet cubicle and thought 'I'll save it for the ... read more

Not long now before I go so thought I’d do this blog now as still seemed to be things left to do before I go. Firstly I’d like to thank everyone who came out to Skylark and then Reflex on Saturday I had a great time and it was awesome to see so many people out. Got a little worried at first as only Matt, Tash and Peter turned up on time but thankful that everyone else turned up late together. My first port of call in St Petersburg I am there for nearly a week before I board the vodka train/trans Siberian railway where I will head off to Moscow from there I head to Irkutsk, Lake Baikal and then onto Ulaanbaatar then I head t Beijing. I will have access to internet in St ... read more

Ok here goes. This is my first of many Blog entries I hope for my round the world trip. I thought I would do two blogs before I go to make sure that I can work this computer and secondly to prove to myself that I am a little bit computer literate. I have had my final course of injections these have included Rabies (to protect from Pretzel) Typhoid, Hep and Yellow fever my arms are a little bit shaky but still worth it as hopefully shouldn't catch anything whilst away. There still seems so much more for me to do before I go away and my family are being really helpful doing things for me or telling me to get off my backside and do things before I go. There always seems so much work ... read more
