Sochi Winter Olympics

The trip to the winter olympics in Sochi, Russia was a last minute trip but one I could not turn down. This was my first Winter Olympics but I am so glad that I went and enjoyed the experience. The travel involved in getting to the city was not the best but I will explain anyway. We have to travel from Manchester to London and then to Moscow.

Tomorrowland Ticket Fiasco

I have written several posts about Tomorrowland because I truly believe that this is the best music festival in the world. The following short article is about how getting tickets for this festival has become a disaster.

Tomorrowland 2014 has seen them double the festival dates, yes...

Traveling Around the UK in a Minibus

I have travelled around many different countries in all sorts of vehicles including New Zealand in a Motorhome but last summer I decided to do things a little different, in a Mini Bus in the UK. The reason for this trip around the UK is because I had my Colombian family visiting for 10 days and with such limited time we had to go from one location to another without having the time to stay too long in one place. The trip could have...
