2016 started off in one way, turned left, got flipped upside down, then messed up in the blender. Here’s how it all came out in the end:
England. Scotland. Northern Ireland. Even Gibraltar. I prefer to categorize these countries separately, and have had many adventures in each of them. Check out the posts from these adventures, below!
In 2014 I traveled through/lived in 7 countries, and traversed over 34,000 miles. Here’s a summary of what I did, and where.
Gibraltar is a territory that feels like an island nation, influenced by many cultures and languages. Oh yeah, and it’s a massive tax-free shopping centre.
It was a perfectly sunny weekend in Glasgow, with a side of touristy and a dose of good humour. Check out my action-packed 1-Minute Glasgow video!
London is growing on me, the more I visit this huge city full of anything and everything.

Arriving in Ireland, I stepped off the ferry in Belfast with exactly ₤2.29 in coins and no bills. I only had one night in Northern Ireland before heading to a friend’s place near Derry (where Euros are the prevailing currency), and I was determined to make the best use of this money while not having […]
International Train Travel – I could think of no better way to get from A to B. Here’s why. This post was originally published in 2010, and has since been updated for accuracy of links and content. I’ve started reading The Old Patagonian Express: By Train Through the Americas by Paul Theroux, which I fear will […]
Having spent 10 days in Scotland, I’m intrigued. Scotland – like so many other places – is now on my list of destinations to return to, and experience slowly. Here are some of the highlights: This post was originally published in 2010. It has since been updated for accuracy of links and content. Edinburgh: Festival […]
The Pub is an institution in England, and English pub culture is a real thing. And nothing illustrates this better than my encounter with The Pub Dog.
Having spent a little over three weeks in England, here are some of the adventures I had in London, Hampshire, Avebury, Winchester, York, and Whitby.
