After an early start and quick breakfast, we went to spend the day in Tivoli Gardens. The day started overcast and cloudy but quickly picked up. This may have put people off as for the first few hours the queues were tiny. In a little under 7 hours we went on nearly every ride (some multiple times), talked, ate, and rested. It was a great day out. Afterwards we wandered the city and had burgers for dinner while listening to live jazz - formulating plans for tomorrow.

After a night in Plön we depart, we say goodbye to one of our companions. Then, it is on to the train for five hours as we travel to Copenhagen. It is a long journey and after watching the scenery dart past for a while we watch some TV. Halfway through the trip our train boards a car ferry. We disembark and explore the ship. Near land we re-embark and watch The Grand Budapest Hotel for the remainder of the Journey. In Copenhagen we walk to the hostel, check in and set out to explore. A jazz festival is in town for our stay. We watch. The day finishes with pizza.

Taking a break from city visits we spend a day in Plön. After a short train ride we check in, and walk around the many lakes. Plön is a beautiful town in the middle of the German countryside. It is quite, and normally rather serene if not for the Harley Davidson festival. So many bikes. After a good walk we head down to a local Indian restaurant and have our last meal as the three of us. Ending the day we return to the hostel. Football is on and it’s coming home.

In the evening we meet up again for an evening meal. We take the train back.

Day two and we were off to an early start. We ate a buffet breakfast, talked to our hostel-mates, and ventured north. We visited the Basilica and peeked inside. Finished in 1911, this modern cathedral is a marvel. Then we caught a train.

Then, off to the Atomium we went. It is huge and has fantastic views of the surrounding city. Then, we visited the ADAM museum and wandered around the Expo grounds. Most of the buildings have been long since destroyed or replaced, but the Chinese and Japanese pavilions are still intact. Or so we thought. Upon arriving in the gardens we find the Chinese pavilion boarded up and the Japanese pavilion inaccessible. Light research reveals that they were both closed five years ago as they were starting to fall apart. A shame. In the evening we cook a fry up, and play a few games of pool.

Interrailing into Brussels: Day 1 Jun. 25, 2018 in Brussels, Interrailing, Photos, Travel

Today is the first day of our adventure. After an early breakfast I set out and caught the express train to Waterloo. Then I walked across central London to St. Pancras International taking in the view on the way. At the station I meet up with my friends, chat, and catch the Eurostar headed for Brussels. We are on out our way.

We arrived mid afternoon, so after we checked into our hostel we ventured into the city, exploring the Grand Place. As places go it is pretty grand with many old and fancy guild halls from when this square was more than just a tourist attraction. Nearby is the infamous and underwhelming Manneken Pis along with several large murals.

For dinner we buy ingredients and retire to the hostel. We cook a simple pasta dish. As we now have a rough idea of the cities layout we discus plans for the next few days. Tomorrow we decide to head north towards the Atomium and see the remnants of Expo 58.

My New Zealand Road Trip Aug. 19, 2008 in New zealand, Photos, Travel

This year I went on a road trip from the bottom of the South Island, all the way to the top of the North. It was a great trip. I got to see some amazing places, spend time with relatives, and overall I have a fantastic time.

Route

This is the route. From London I flew to Singapore, stayed a couple of days, then flew to Auckland. Then I boarded a plan from Auckland to Wellington, and then from Wellington to Queenstown. In total, that is well over a day of flying, and considerably more when you consider how long you have to be in an airport before an international flight. When combined with the twelve (ish) hour time difference, that’s a hell of a lot of jet lag. But the holiday was just beginning.

From there I travelled up the South Island towards the Cook Straight where I boarded a ferry. Once disembarked, I travelled from Wellington to Auckland where I concluded my time in New Zealand. It was an amazing experience.

To conclude the journey, I boarded a flight from Auckland to Singapore where I was to relax on Sentosa Island for a few days. And finally, the last flight back to London. It was all over.

And an aerial shot showing the lush greenery, mountains, and emptiness of New Zealand. In total the country has a population of around five million. This is less than London, but larger than Berlin or Paris. Maps courtesy of Google Maps.
