18th April 2014

In this part I write about three different cities I visited – visiting a friend in each and doing some other things while I’m there. Again, I’m telling thoughts I have based on things I did including gender, mass surveillance, learning, fear, etc. Bristol Following home, I set out on the next stage of my […]

Travel Blog 3 is about what I did during five weeks of my Semesterferien (non-term-time, it doesn’t seem right to call them “holidays” anymore); even though I was in England it still felt like travelling because I only spend 5 nights at home over three different parts, and I was living out of my backpack […]

The first half of this was written while I was interrailing but I never uploaded it, and I’ve added a couple more about Germany to the end of that.

Count your blessings – laundry!

Journey to the End of the Night
24th September 2013

This was the event which drew me to Venice, and without it I don’t think I would’ve bothered with the trip. It was called ‘Journey to the end of the Night’: there was a 10km route around Venice with six checkpoints to go through, the aim obviously being to make it to the end but […]
