The weather had improved from the previous evening. A steady rain had been falling, as we had made our way to our Finchley abode. A new trip to London. A new Travelodge. The Northern Line this time. A journey through my musical collection. Kentish Town. Track 4. Album: Love & Its Opposite. Tracey Thorn of Everything but the Girl. Mornington Crescent. Track 13. Album: The Life Pursuit. Belle & Sebastian. The weather was forecast to go downhill, but visibility was good from our lofty perch. North London was visible before us. The arch of the "new" Wembley could be seen out the corner of the window. It will still be "new" to some of us in 30 years' time. I amused myself watching a business early bird attempting to park a car. He was making good ... read more

Sunday August 22, 2010 (Blogged by Craig) Dear all, Hello from London. We arrived on Saturday morning, after a long and exhausting haul . How people do this long flight more than once a year is beyond us (Stefan?). We emerged from the plane like deformed pretzels, having bearly slept, depsite the Temaze sleeping tabs. I had a very bad back from the whole ordeal, which required numerous doses of Nurofen Plus and several lashings of duty free gin. Since we arrived at 7am, the hotel room of course wasn't ready, so we had to dump our packs and wander about in search of food and coffee. At least the weather is mild (about 23 degrees albeit cloudy). Spent the weekend looking around the usual tourist sights, Trafalgar Sqaure, houses of Parliament, British Museum , etc. ... read more

What's for dinner? Mira had a great idea to try some exotic food for dinner one night. She stumbled upon this restaurant called Archipelago Can you imagine the type of menu they had? Our orders consisted of the following: Dan: Appetizer: Seafood / Main: Zebra Mira: Appetizer: Crocodile/ Main: Kangaroo / Dessert: Chocolate covered scorpion M: Appetizer: Ostrich / Main: Zebra Cool right? It's a cool restaurant to take visiting friends/dates etc. The food was good, although the scorpion was a RIPOFF in my opinion. And, as always, we have photos of our food. Enjoy.... read more

Friday 21st August 2009 Work. Saturday 22nd August 2009 I am so excited for today because I’m meeting up with Courtney Tyler, Nicci Bull and her husband Michael for lunch and watching the final test match of cricket on the big screen at Regent’s Park. I went to the wrong place to meet them. I thought they were at Oxford Circus but actually it was Piccadilly Circus. It wasn’t so bad because it’s only a 10 minute walk away. It was really nice to catch up on the gossip of home plus to find out where to go in the places that they have travelled. We had a beautiful lunch at this restaurant - only £6.95 for a 2 course meal. It was delicious. I would definitely go back there again, hopefully I could find ... read more

Friday 14th August 2009 Work. My department and I went ten pin bowling after work today. Well actually at 4pm as a bonding session. It was so much fun but I still suck at bowling. It was really nice to spend some time with my co workers outside of the office. Home by 6pm to have a nice home cooked meal of lasagne and salad. Saturday 15th August 2009 Another lazy weekend - it suites my quite well at the moment too. Sunday 16th August 2009 I didn’t have a good night last night. My external hard drive broke down on me and I think I may have lost all of my data and photos. Luckily I took a copy of all the photos off the other day but I’m really stressed. I almost fainted ... read more

Friday 31st July 2009 Work. Saturday 1st August 2009 I’ve been in the UK 3 months today. My how time flys! Another weekend has come and time to get busy! Well probably not but I have the best of intentions. I’m a little sad because tonight is Aunty Sue’s 50th b’day party and I’m not going to be there. You all know I love family events; catching up with everyone and dancing the night away. I hope you have the best night! Not going out on tonight, I just need to chill plus I’m going out for lunch tomorrow so I don’t want to be hung over. Sunday 2nd August 2009 I’m having lunch at one of my co workers (Susana) home today. It was such a lovely day with her family and relatives; her ... read more

Friday 7th August 2009 HAPPY BIRTHDAY JAKE!! Oh and happy birthday to my friend Alicia! Today is work but tonight is party! I get ready for the party whilst pre-drinking and am looking the part. It was hot in the club and I was wearing leg warmers. Silly Bec! I came home at about 1am and that was enough for me but so much fun! Saturday 8th August 2009 I slept in finally! It was so good!! Another lazy day in bed and I’m not feeling 100%. No I was not hung over at all (I think). Spent the whole day in bed just chilling with my movies and music. Sunday 9th August 2009 I really wanted to get out of the city and go for a drive in a car but I know that ... read more

Friday 24th July 2009 Work again. TGI Friday! They actually have that restaurant chain in London, must go there at some stage! Saturday 25th July 2009 Not much happening this weekend at all. Just a quite one getting organised and doing washing. Ash-Lei, who now lives in Manchester, is back for the weekend with her sister. I caught up with them for drinks across the road at the College Arms pubs. It was really nice and I had lots of fun! Still a reasonable early night though. Sunday 26th July 2009 Watched a couple of movies and had lots of fun chilling at the hostel. Monday 27th July 2009 ARGH! I get so frustrated sometimes with some people over here. I am who I am so just deal with it. I’m not going to change ... read more

Friday 17th July 2009 Work. Tomorrow night is the Pamplona Post Party Celebrations. I really hope that they don’t have any sangria. I still can’t look at that stuff - hopefully by the time I get to Barcelona I will be able to drink it again Saturday 18th July 2009 I can’t get back to my normal sleeping patterns yet. I’m up before 6am most days! ARGH!! Hopefully I won’t be tired for the Pamplona Post Party Celebrations. I really want to catch up with everyone that we partied with at Pamps. Thanks to Lauren and Jamie for the phone call. I am really looking forward to my surprise. I wonder what it could be! There were quite a few people that came to the celebrations and it really was a lot of fun but ... read more

Friday 10th July 2009 Mmmm a little bit of a sleep in. Time to upload photos so you can all see what I’m up to!! Back to reality! No more travelling for a little while. Surprisingly I’m not that tired or sick! It’s a first for me but I know it will hit me when the adrenalin wears off. Lazing around today and no work until Monday so hopefully I bum around, watch a few movies and catch up with people that I haven’t see for 6 or so days. Living in such confined quarters can be difficult sometimes but I actually miss the closeness of everyone when I’m away. The novelty wears off fairly soon though. Saturday 11th July 2009 Today was a great day and we are having dinner and karaoke because Clement ... read more
