Today was yet another fairly uninteresting day occupied mostly by either travel or waiting to travel. I left the hostel at noon and started walking to my first pick-up point. Suffice it to say that Blablacar is quite helpful, but sometimes frustrating with a language barrier. So I was to meet a couple at one […]Read more "June 9th and 10th 2015"
It’s early morning here on my last few hours in Rimini. I had breakfast a few hours ago, and now I’m trying to fit in lunch. I’m going to be on the road for most of the day, so it’s now or never. First, I have a ride from Blablacar booked at 1430 (across town) […]Read more "Tuesday, June 9th"

From there we headed across the Riffey […]Read more "June 3rd 2015"

The Storehouse is seven stories high, and shaped like a giant pint glass. On the top floor is the Gravity Lounge, where each […]Read more "June 2nd 2015"
June 1st 2015. It’s about 0900 and we are leaving Madrid on the last leg of our flight to Dublin. We left at 0600 Sunday, I would like to say without a hitch. I accidentally forgot my passport and cash stuffed under the driver’s seat of my car, so when Chris dropped us off I […]Read more "Day 1: Dublin Ireland. June 1st 2015"
