little green book of travels & tales

Hopefully in two months time this little book will be jam packed with hundreds of tales about my travels. If you’ve been following me on twitter, you may be aware that I’ve been in a travelling frame of mind lately. Because this time next week I will be in London! And the week after that I’ll be having a grand old time at Glastonbury. To help me get organised I’m going to ask all you lovely readers (because I know there are a fair few of you in the UK and Europe in general) to give me your best London/Glastonbury/travel tips. I’ll also be spending a week in Paris and an extra week or two gallivanting (read: no set plans yet) in Europe. So the more advice, the better! Tell me your favourite things to do, places to visit, and where to eat/drink/shop/people watch. Recommendations on where I can get a decent cup of coffee won’t go astray either. I’ll be travelling sans laptop so posting might be a bit erratic over the next six weeks. I’ll look into setting up some scheduled posts, and will try and do a quick post every now and then while I’m over there. Rest assured I’ll have plenty to blog about when I get back. In the meantime, you can look forward to my packing* posts!
*Not that I’m particularly looking forward to packing…

travel plans

This weekend I booked some flights to London. I’ll be heading over next June for five weeks. Mainly to visit my friend Bron who moved there earlier this year. And also because of a little festival that goes by the name of Glastonbury. Yes, you read correctly. I GOT TICKETS TO GLASTONBURY. I’ve been sitting on that one for a while now. Having exhausted the Aussie festival circuit, it was only natural that I take the next step and aim for arguably the most notorious music festival in the world. I’ll also be there for my birthday, which is an extra treat. I’ll probably be spending it absolutely exhausted though, as it’s the day after Glastonbury. Anyway, I’m just a tad (read: very) excited, and will be patiently counting down the days until June 2011. To all my readers who live in or have visited London, any advice on things to do would be much appreciated. I’m interested in anything and everything – from all the big touristy attractions to little things like quirky bars/art galleries/cafes/shops etc. If you’re a regular on this blog, then you probably already have a fair idea of the kind of stuff that I would be into. Thanks in advance to all those who answer the call!
Also, Happy Halloween! Hope you’re all getting your spook on. I went to a party last night (dressed up as Wednesday Addams) and took my Canon Sureshot camera along for the ride. Photos to come.
