    Hanging around in the UK

    May 22, 2018 in the United Kingdom

    Well, after an amazing few weeks making memories with family and friends, we were supposed to be taking the ferry over to France today. However we've both had niggles with our health and took the decision to stay around in the UK to try and get them sorted. We have appointments at the end of June so have enjoyed a few days with Will's sister Sue and her family, mostly working in the garden. We'll help Will's brother Pete and partner Maggie move into their new house and have yet to make plans for the rest of our time. One thing is for sure; it is a beautiful time of year to be in our own country and we are relishing the new opportunities this change of plan has opened up.

    We still intend to complete our tour of Europe and will keep you updated with any new travel plans. By putting the itinerary on hold, we hope we are giving ourselves the chance to be in the best of health, so we can enjoy travelling to the greatest extent!

    Our new base!

    June 27, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    We are at our new base: Will's sister's Sue's house in Orpington.
    There are parakeets flying overhead and a vine growing on the wall getting is in the mood for continental travel.
    I used a launderette for the first time as I thought it would be easier learning the ropes in English.

    A Lone Turk at the Crystal Palace

    August 27, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    Picked up my bike today in Brixton, happy to be surrounded by Caribbean people. In honor of Celeste Olalquiaga's fabulous book The Artificial Kingdom, I decided to head from Brixton up to the Crystal Palace, where you can the remains of this paragon of Victoria architecture which was built in 1851 after industrialization permitted the manufacture of large glass panes (see en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Crystal_Palace). All that's left is the stone surround and this statue overlooking it.

    Then, I headed off to the land North of the River on the first stop on my cheese pilgrimage: the Neal's Yard Dairy. The shop was everything I had imagined, and one of the cheesemongers gave me tastes of everything! Sadly, the camera on my phone went berserk and wouldn't focus on anything, so I give you blurry pictures of delicious cheese...

    Later on, I met up with my fabulous student Jacob, who just filed his dissertation at the London School of Economics! We went to place for cute drinks called Oriole in the Borough Square Market on Poultry Lane. It was a bit over the top, especially the "blue" corn in a pisco-sour-influenced drink that was actually baby corn soaked in blue food coloring (for real). A world of Orientalist nostalgia in liquor!

    London Bromley

    May 28, 2016 in the United Kingdom

    23.03 Ortszeit habe ich es auch endlich zu meiner Gastfamilie geschafft ... .Erster Eindruck ist sehr positiv.

    Ich kam erst so spät an, da der Bus noch zusätzlich 2 Stunden länger in der Passkontrolle brauchte. Es wurden 2 Passagiere nicht durchgelassen, erst nach mehrmaligen Hin und Her ging es irgendwann weiter.
    Ein abschließender Gedanke noch zur Busfahrt: Egal wie lange ich nochmal mit einem Bus fahren werde, diese abenteuerliche Fahrt mit all seinen Komplikationen wird wohl unvergesslich bleiben.

    Es ist ein riesengroßes und luxuriöses Haus in dem wohne. Es sind an die 12 Zimmer und zusätzlich gibt es auch noch einen schönen Garten. Ich schlafe im Dachstuhl und habe somit einen schönen Rundblick.

    The start of my journey west. My first trip to the US begins on Sunday. Last bits and pieces are being sorted and nerves are kicking in. Another adventure, a brand new job, with new challenges and exciting journeys to be had.
    A Whole New World you might say.
