Day 8: The Journey Home

After the week that somehow has flown over, it's now time to start the journey back to the home country and a proper cup of tea (which I will have as soon as we land in Heathrow!!) Last night we spent our last evening in Austria by having a stroll to the centre monument and …

Emmersdorf – Traismauer

This morning I got Gluten Free Cornflakes... this was a revelation. I haven't had cornflakes in aaaaages, mostly because Sainsbury's changed their recipe so the barley malt extract levels are too high. So happy!!! Anyway enough about the food. Today's section was through Spitz and Krems. Spitz was where we were supposed to have a …

9 more days

In exactly 9 days I set off to my little jaunt along the Austrian stretch of the Danube. I've just about got everything sorted - travelling light, with a carry on only. And everything else now is in the hands of the fates. Yes, there may potentially be a British Airways Strike in the days …

Germany/Austria

This year I'm finally going on holiday (other than the annual centre parcs trip), and I'm going cycling with my Mam, so be sure to check out her blog too for updates! So yeah, Germany and Austria. More specifically we're cycling 214 miles of the Danube (read more here). And you can guarantee you'll get …

The case of the missing aeroplane – or the saga of flight TCX6039, the Burgas edition (A Sunny Beach 2013 epilogue)

At midnight we all trooped onto our arranged transport to the airport. Some confusion began due to people not realising that whether Gatwick or Newcastle the buses still took you to the same airport. Arrival at the airport and all was fine. Went to check in at stand 21-23 and waited. Then came the time …

Mini-break homies!

Well the time has come for a Robbo excursion. Not on such a massive scale as the time when... (insert random previous destination). But good things come in small packages. So it has come to pass that I am off to Hungary, or more specifically Budapest. Myself and my travel companion for this journey are …

Day 10: Road Trip (LA in a Day – Santa Monica Pier, Runyon Canyon, Beverley Hills, Hollywood Blvd)

Santa Monica Pier was the first stop on this whistle stop adventure of southern California. I got my picture taken Forrest Gump style outside of Bubba Gump Shrimp co. Yes it is a real restaurant chain it was created after the movie was made. I was a total tourist, I was stunned by everything I …

Slight Delay!

Hi I'm writing this from Angela's laptop, I do have 2 blog posts written and ready to send but for some reason the internet is playing up on my iPod and I'm too lazy to rewrite them on here - so I'll post them when I get a good wifi connection. But just in case …

Day 4: Taches on

Ok so today was crazy full - this morning we did Breakfast, not the artery clogging typical American... Sorry United States, not American as American is not a nationality for citizens of the US - private joke... Breakfast but still a damn good breakfast. We had cherry mimosas (a pitcher of, we keep it classy …
