So after lots of travelling I finally arrived in what would be my
home for an undetermined period of time. I did like the idea of
settling into a city for a while. However, at the same time I had
absolutely loved seeing so many different and wonderful places and
people in such a short space of time.
Upon walking out of Arrivals I was very pleasantly suprised to be
greeted by a welcoming committee
one to greet you. So it was great to have some close friends and
my brother greet me at Heathrow Airport.
Well having a few contacts here in London I had a very easy ride.
I have been able to couch surf until mid December. What an
effort. So a big thank you to everyone who put me up. And
Keithy House, you are a legend!
So the weather was alright upon arrival in London. So there were
some great times spent in the parks playing Ultimate Frisbee
(undoubtedly the greatest game ever). That certainly is a nice
aspect to London
play in, which was noticeable when flying over.
Safe to say, a few beers have been consumed here. Many good house
parties and some good nights out. I must say of particular
highlight have been the costume parties. Superhero Sunday at The
Church was fantastic. I decided that I should go as the greatest
superhero of them all . . . (Super) Australian Fastbowler, how ya
going? Another highlight would be The Pirate Party at the
Walkie. Being a pirate does lend itself quite nicely to getting
drunk and still being tolerated because, hey you're a pirate!
Otherwise my dream run of not working came to an end in
around on a pushy with a trolley attached. Wow that was hard
work. Then I moved on to travelling around the UK promoting stock
market and property investing seminars. Which has been great to
learn for myself and also see a lot of the UK other than just
London. I have been all over the place. But so far my
favourite cities would be Edinburgh and Bristol.
Well I left Australia in search of random adventures have certainly
experienced that quite well in many places. So I do have a few
stories to tell at the bar now. But here is a very unexpected
one. In London I met this wonderful Lithuanian girl whom I got on
with very well
had not organised a place to stay. So I decided to go and squat
with this girl for a while. Yep that's right I said SQUAT!
Ha ha absolutely hilarious now. Next time I see you just ask me
to tell you a bit more about that one.
Well now it is the end of the year. I have finally got my own
place. It is nice to finally be able to fully unpack my bag and
settle in and enjoy my own bed again. Wow what a year it has
been. Easily my most enjoyable year with so many good
memories. I hope to be writing many more wonderful stories in my
blogs next year. Thank you for reading some of my travel
tales. I hope you have enjoyed the journey so far? Take
care and enjoy til the next time!
