All posts for the month November, 2012

I finished my Nanowrimo! (although this post has nothing to do with that)

After spending most of the day on the coach, we are in Paris! Though I have been to Paris before on at least six school trips, things like the eiffel tower are things you can see again and still find pretty amazing. Especially since though I have been to Paris on loads of school trips, it wasn’t until my sixth time in France, I actually went up the Eiffel tower at all!

As I say, we spent most of the day on the coach, but we have the entire day in Paris tomorrow, we’re leaving on Sunday, so I can spend the day buying Christmas presents and looking at all the monuments, and in the evening – We’re going to the Moulin Rouge!


Preparation is futile if you can’t even remember where your hotel is

Preparation is futile if can't even remember where your hotel is

Suitcase packed. Camera charged. I just have to remember the directions to the hotel I’m staying at in London tomorrow and I’ll be in France on friday!

I leave on Friday and I still haven’t packed…

There are many things I could have called this blog. I nearly called it “How not to learn Italian” but considering that this time round, I’m only going to be in Italy for two days, I don’t think that’s enough time for anybody to learn Italian…

I decided in this one, simply because I am hardly known for giving good advice in any area of life. I’m going travelling for a month, while I have no idea whether any of the places I’m staying will have internet, I can always save the posts up and release them into the wilds of the internet when I can, especailly now I have a Shiny Shiny Macintosh laptop – though it’s only mine for a month apprently. Not that I have any idea how to use it and considering my track record with computers this year (this is my fourth).

But whatever the name is, and whether or not I decide to change it in the near future I’ll be writing it as I go and (hopefully) learning some wisdom that no-one should take along the way.
