Today was a day trip to Warwick. It was the first time I used my InterRail pass for real. It appeared that nobody at Maryleborn station had a clue how it worked but I got on the train eventually. The city itself is nothing special but they did mistakenly give me roast chicken with roastContinue reading “Warwick Castle day trip”

Quick check-in before sleep
Not a lot to say, cause I wanna go to sleep. The Eurostar train to London was neat, in that it was fast. Way too expensive though. I would recommend flying when possible.

On Sunday morning, I will go to England, most likely London. It depends on if my friend, Felicity, is free then. Otherwise, I will save London for the endContinue reading “Plans are in motion!”
After 4.5 years, I’m finally about to live the dream: an Interrail backpacking trip! I will set out within a week or so and, rather than keep everyone up-to-date individually, I will do that here. Or, at least, I plan to. I’m not sure if that will take the form of a travel journal, photos,Continue reading “Mattblog: Resurrection”
