7. Hang

7. /Hang/ Eixample Barcelona, Spain Is it even justifiable that I’ve spent 24 euros on 3 margaritas and a plate of patatas bravas (cheeeeps) in an empty bar in Barcelona?? Eixample is one of Bareclona’s more quieter neighbourhood with it’s grid-like blocks and tree-lined streets with fountains and cosy cafes. It’s about 10.30pm on a Thursday night and I’m sitting in a pub by myself … Continue reading 7. Hang

4. Space

4. /Space/ En Route LIS – MAD  6 days into the trip and the baggage status on the tracking website has changed from ‘not traced’ to ‘in-delivery’.

Sitting around an airport on the brink of tears from boredom in between flights especially if it’s a hole like LAX International or a domestic air terminal in the middle of nowhere with a broken vending machine and 3 plastic seats bolted to the floor (because they tend to disappear!). With Fiji (Nadi) being “thrown-in” in many RTW issued tickets these days … Continue reading Long Layover in Fiji? Try A Thermal Mud Bath!

Something You Should Know Before You Go Travel The World

This tenant was supposed to move out last Monday. Having not heard from him by 3pm, I dropped by to ‘just see how he was going’. He was going alright. There was a fully loaded 2 ton truck sitting on the driveway. He asked if he could handover the keys the next day as he had a ‘few loads’ more to go. A text on … Continue reading Something You Should Know Before You Go Travel The World
