Andorra: Day 5 – More snowboarding, for some

The boys eagerly went up the slopes, to get more practice, Karyn and Maree just went to watch and take photos. Bernie and I intended on going to Andorra la Vella (the capital of Andorra), but missed the bus. We ended up wandering around Pas de la Casa, and then finding a Pizzeria for some […]

Andorra: Day 4 – Snowboarding

We all got up early to buy lift passes (directly across the road again). Then it was time to get kitted up with our gear, finding out whether you were standard or goofy (stand with feet together and someone pushes you – which ever foot you used to balance is the foot that leads when […]

Andorra: Day 3 – White Christmas

We opened the prezzies in the morning. We then all dressed warmly in our wet weather gear then headed off to play in the snow; several snow angels, snowball fights, 1 or 2 people getting stuck in the snow. Karyn and I made a snowman, while Brian wrote his name in the snow repeatedly (not […]

Andorra: Day 2 – Exploring Pas de la Casa

Our first sight of Pas de la Casa in the light of day the next morning was peaking out the window over an impressive mountain peak caught in the morning light – magnificent. Our mission for today was to book our snowboarding gear and to check out the local shopping. We wandered out our front […]

Andorra: Day 1 – Arriving at Pas de la Casa

We met up with everybody, being Karyn and Brian, Maree and Scot, and Bernie, at Victoria Station in the morning and caught the Gatwick Express to the airport. The Airport was really busy – everyone seemed to be going away for Christmas. While waiting in a queue to start the sorting process we stumbled into […]

Leeds Castle & Guy Fawkes

We’ve been really lucky with the weather for our trips, and today was no exception. We decided on a relaxed start to this trip, by departing mid morning (10am). After getting out of London we made good time driving around the M25, going over the river along the impressive QEII Bridge. For those of you […]

Crash Test Dummies @ Dingwalls

The Crash Test Dummies concert was held at Dingwalls which is in the middle of the Lock Markets at Camden, London. The concert doors were to open at 7:30pm, but the girl at the door told us that the sound check was taking longer than usual so things would be a bit late. CTD themselves […]

A trip West and South

Here’s an old one out of the archives, October 2001. Day One London, through Avebury to Bath – with Chalk Horse spotting on the way. Keryn at Avebury Bath cathedral Day Two Bath, Wells, Glastonbury through to Brighton. Roman Bath Well’s Cathedral Flying over Glastonbury Tor Keryn at Glastonbury Tor Day Three Brighton, the Long […]

Tori Amos

Tori played at a place called the Union Chapel in Islington, and is still used as a church. It’s strange being seated for a concert in church pulpits looking at people lining up to buy beer. There was an assortment of interesting people at the concert, from full on gothic through punk and hippie to […]

Heather Nova

Great concert at Shepherds Bush Empire, an old BBC building. Heather is really small but has a huge and unique voice. Heather started off slowly but soon got into the swing of things and let loose with plenty of volume and passion. There were two encores, the second of which was dictated by the audience, […]

Summer Solstice Fireworks

In our previous post we forgot to mention that we got to see a really cool fireworks display at Victoria Park celebrating the summer solstice. The fireworks were amazing and were set to music. First theme was the drums, which had fire spurts in time to the beat, second theme was the saxophone where there […]

Flat Hunting

It has been a wee while since our last email. Our excuse is that nothing much had happened, and then when stuff did start happening we didn’t have an Internet connection (and we didn’t want to go to an Internet Café). Flat hunting turned out to be a small nightmare, we kept on missing out […]
