Oktoberfest!

Ahhh, is there anything more relaxing than a day without demands? A day spent catching up on favourite past times? I’m not sure, but today was one of those days for me. Waving off the other-half to the conference, I took my time over a cup of coffee, caught up on Twitter, Facebook, and some…

Brandenburgh and there abouts

It was all go today… well, so long as go was slow/steady, and didn’t involve high amounts of energy! This was due mainly to the fact that neither of us slept particularly well, mostly due to the heat. Whilst we’d been looking ward to it being a little warmer over here, we weren’t expecting 20ish…

First impressions: Berlin

Wow, that should have been so much easier! Getting from Leeds, to Manchester, to Berlin should have taken us around 6hrs. Should have. 1.5hrs to Manchester, 2hr flight, time in between spent on immigration etc. Before checking into our AirBnB by 5pm. That’s not what happened. We’ve been looking forward to this trip for a…

Road to recovery!

It’s a hang-dog expression… first night with the cone on, and someone didn’t get a lot if sleep. Think today’s going to be a quiet day for her… zzzzz

Dry Suit Diving

  Quick post time. Yesterday, Sunday, was a brilliant day for me. Mostly. After starting my SCUBA training over 12 months ago, I finally finished the dry suit part of my Open Water certification. Whilst 90% of my diving has been dry suit, I’ve never managed to get around to ‘signing off’ on the last official…

Back, again

Just a quick update. We’re back home, safe and sound. Our last ‘day’ in Athens wasn’t that long, as we had a late start, and an early afternoon flight. So by the time we ducked down to a nearby shop and bought all of their bottles of Greek Loux lemonade that pretty well finished off…

At sea, to see

Well, what a day. I’m not really sure how to describe our experience, it’s been a day filled with polarities and mixed emotions. We were up on time, and after inhaling breakfast made sure we were outside our designated collection point early. That’s about where things went weird. Instead of being collected by the Evermore…

Atop the Acrop.

Rarely do I use the ubiquitous ‘O.M.G.’, but today, is that day. I’d been told that in order to avoid the crowds at the Acropolis (TripAdvisor) entrance, that you need to be there early, when the gates open in fact. This piece of advice was correct, and if you’re reading this and wondering, the first…
