Uxbridge No MoreUxbridge No MoreUxbridge No More

Will i miss it? No.
The time has come. I have turned 30 and unlike many of my friends who are settling down and having kids, I am regressing in maturity and heading off down the backpacker road frequently travelled! I leave on Saturday for Buenos Aires and the plan is to travel on from there, after 2 weeks of intensive Spanish learning.

Much as i am sure i will miss terribly another depressing British winter, failure again of Ireland to win the 6 Nations and the Monday morning drag out of bed to Uxbridge for work, I think i can handle it all to go somewhere i have always wanted to explore and travel around.

I'll try and keep this blog reasonably up to date, and i look forward to the many abusive comments from you along the way.

Onwards....to Argentina, to a country that know how to play rugby and eat steak!

No use!!
This message was of no use to me and served no purpose! Get back to us when you have something interesting to say, preferably along the lines of "so I was walking through the jungle today and saw a Gorilla drilling a Marmoset", now that's interesting!!! Good luck, love from Dave

Good stuff
Go to Venezuala - they've just moved their national time forward 30 minutes, out os sync with everyone else. Hugo Chavez is bizarrely anti-GWB to the extent he'd change time just to be different to the US. Don't mention the war in Argentina - 25 yrs of hurt...
