Finally donated blood! Not scary (I even went alone - hard). Go do it people! It only takes half an hour. Plus you get free snacks. I should do this, especially as my partner relies on people's donations at the moment. I need to overcom...

Spent the weekend in Bergen! Beautiful city, and friendly people. Hiked in the surrounding mountains, sampled bit and pieces from the famous fish market, and explored the narrow, cobbled streets which fit in amongst the mish mashed ...

Two months from Quito, Ecuador to Rio, Brazil. Went in an organised group with about 10 others, using public transport and staying in hotels. Ecuador > Peru > Bolivia > Paraguay > Brazil. Fantastic seems an understatement!

My friend and I explored Rio for the day and went to the Lapa steps and the Christ the Redeemer. The steps were fantastic, but in a dodgy neighbourhood, so we didn't stay long! The crowds at the Christ the Redeemer were heaving, whi...

My friend and I woke up so early in the morning that we almost couldn't be bothered - eeep! Got a mini bus from the train station in Flagstaff with a couple called Kevin and Susan from Kansas. Our driver was "Big Ed" and he had a s...

We went on a Monday so it was free entry! We spent about half an hour trying to fit our 55l rucksacks into the lockers, then went to explore the great aquarium with a supercool sea turtle called Nickel whose bum floats!

Went to Buffalo, and decided to go to Canada for the day to see the falls from that side as recommended. The tacky casino town with neon coloured lights were a bit of a shame, but the falls were spectacular! It was also spectacularly col...

I went to the Christmas markets in Cologne. Stunning setting with the huge gothic cathedral as a backdrop. Looked and smelled delicious, with a fun, cosy, Christmassy atmosphere!

Went to Reading once in 2005. It was a bit too mental for me- too many 15 years olds hammered and starting fights, chucking gas canisters on campfires and urinating on people's tents. Have been to Latitude Festival every y...
