Viva San Fermín! Viva Pamplona!

Posted by on July 19th, 2012 in Europe, Spain | 14 comments

[Not a valid template] I was drenched in wine, sangria, champagne and beer; I was soaked, all of us were. And the festival in Pamplona had only started an hour earlier. So what the hell is San Fermín about? Just a few hours earlier I had wandered in awe at the streets of Pamplona, looking at all the people wearing clean white clothes. Come to Pamplona during the festival and not dress in white, and you will stand out....

Pamplona – a City Getting Ready to Party

Posted by on July 10th, 2012 in Europe, Spain | 9 comments

[Not a valid template] Pamplona, here I finally was. What had originally started as a random twitter chat with Jeannie from Nomadic Chick, had finally come to this. I was in Pamplona and the San Fermin festival was about to start in sixteen hours. [Not a valid template] But first things first; I had to find my accommodation. This was basically a flat of a friend of a friend of a friend kind of thing, as obviously staying in...

Viva España

Posted by on July 4th, 2012 in Europe, Spain | 2 comments

[Not a valid template] Spain had made it to the Euro 2012 final and with luck I had flown to Torrevieja on Friday. And if I know one thing about Spain, it is that they love their football. So there was no way I was going to miss the spectacle on Sunday. And while my parents aren’t keen followers of football (nor am I), they do know an opportunity for a good party when they see one, so they...

I’m Sorry Essen, It’s Not You, It’s Me

Posted by on June 30th, 2012 in Europe, Germany | 4 comments

[Not a valid template] I told a German couple I met in London, that I was working in Germany. They were of course very excited and asked where in Germany I was working in. When I told them I was working in Essen, the excitement quickly vanished from their faces and they told me they were sorry. So to back up a little, yes I got back from my Round the World Trip in January, and yes I’ve moved...

Cheung Chau – You won’t Believe you’re in Hong Kong

Posted by on June 18th, 2012 in Asia, Hong Kong, Photos | 8 comments

[Not a valid template] I’m sitting in a restaurant in Hong Kong, but something is different. I hear my fork click against the plate. I hear someone adjusting the radio in the building opposite of me. I hear a push cart screeching closer, I know exactly which direction it is coming from before I actually see it. There is an old chair on it. I hear the quiet but increasing hum of a bike approaching form the other direction....

The “No Meat, No Liquor” Restaurant

Posted by on June 12th, 2012 in England, Europe, Food, London | 10 comments

[Not a valid template] So, you’re planning on going on a date with a vegan girl you like; she also doesn’t drink at all, so you don’t quite know where to take her. Well, worry not, for I have a restaurant for you! Meat Liquor! No, don’t worry about the name; it’s just deep in irony kind of thing; much like the outside of the restaurant, where you can’t even read the sign of the restaurant properly unless you...

The 39th Cambridge Beer Festival

Posted by on May 27th, 2012 in England, Europe, Food | 16 comments

[Not a valid template] Sunshine, good beer and friends; there is not much more you can ask from a day out, which is why I headed to the 39th Cambridge Beer Festival in umm Cambridge. And if there were rumours of a barbecue afterwards, well that’s even better. We took the train from London to Cambridge which is only some 50 miles north of London; where we then met up with another friend and then headed on to Jesus...
