Anything but Fine (Austria)

Austria ~ Vienna – 2014 As I walked the streets of Vienna, I couldn’t help but realise something; (well…aside from the gorgeous architectural heritage sprawled out on every block, and the cheery friendly folk inhabiting the bustling pavements!) No, instead what gripped me more intensely was something a lot less in your face – somethingContinue reading “Anything but Fine (Austria)”

Not so Fassi! (Italy)

Italy ~ Rome – 2014 Maps are annoying. I mean, that’s why some genius invented the isn’t it? But when you are without a car in a foreign country, people would be right to think you are odd (at best), or a complete and utter maniac, if you were to wander the streets clutching aContinue reading “Not so Fassi! (Italy)”

Amazons on Ice (Norway)

Norway ~ Tromsø – 2013 Despite bitterly cold temperatures that leave your extremities feeling like ice cubes, Norway regularly scores in the top two or three when it comes to “happiness” scores…not sure how they actually work those things out – I assume it is more technical than walking up to people with a clipboardContinue reading “Amazons on Ice (Norway)”

ARE YOU SEEERIOUS?!? (England)

England ~ Sunderland – 2014 So I’m back to England at long last, and slowly but surely I am getting around to meeting up with my nearest and dearest – it’s always great to be back, but very, very weird…it’s like nothing changes, but at the same time everything does…I don’t know. Anyway, so lastContinue reading “ARE YOU SEEERIOUS?!? (England)”

Mrs. Satan (South Korea)

South Korea ~ Suwon – 2014 I have just endured a very, very, weird work situation. Loved the kids for the most part, and was blessed with some pretty special workmates – my bosses though…hmmm…how do I put this in a clear, but dignified manner? How about this for size…they were absolutely fucking mental.

Mad Axe Murderer Man (Spain)

Spain ~ Unknown – 2001 During my childhood my family would spend their summer holidays trawling through Europe. Wow, sounds wonderful! Well…sure, it does now, but back then I thought of it as a living hell. I mean, imagine this – five children and two adults squeezed into a battered people carrier, in searing heat…driving,Continue reading “Mad Axe Murderer Man (Spain)”
