Just to say that I’m back from Rome now. Photos and a blog shall come soon. 🙂
A brief blog from Rome! Got here on Wednesday after the fun of “sleeping” in Stansted airport, etc. Saw many sites on Thursday, went to a water park yesterday and out to some pubs in the evening. Went to the zoo today, and got a few things planned for the next few days. It’s hot!
Well, I’m heading off to Rome today – only get as far as Stansted Airport tonight as we tried to book the cheapest flights, so the Stansted -> Rome bit is at 6am. Shall be back next Wednesday!
Best film ever. Just got back from seeing this, really enjoyed it. It’s half supposed to be serious – or at least seem serious, but you really can’t take it seriously at all. Well worth seeing! Some of the scenes are a bit… unnecessary (guy going to toilet, guess what’s in the toilet… amongst other things). Other than that, good for a night’s entertainment!
And yes, I’m not good at reviewing films. Thanks, Pete. ¬_¬
I’m looking forward to freshers week!
I think I forgot to mention this, but I’ve uploaded my Brazil pictures now. Haven’t labelled each one, I’ll do that sometime soon, but you get the general gist. 🙂
Dear me, I’ve just gone and booked a flight to and hostel in Boston, for Reading Week in November. The plan is to have a poke around Boston and also head to New York City and have a little look there. It seems I may have picked up a little addiction here, travelling.
Well, yesterday I got back to the UK, finally. Set off from Recife on Wednesday evening, fine – got to Lisbon a little bit late, but caught my flight to Frankfurt, fine. Walked about half a mile to a different terminal in Frankfurt, fine. Went through security, and the guy noticed I was flying to London, and informed me that “Heathrow is closed”. Hmm, odd, I thought. Turns out my flight was cancelled, so I spent about an hour at least in one queue, before being told to go to another queue. Spent a bit longer in there, and finally got my ticket changed for a later flight, in “standby” mode – basically, if there’s a seat free, I may get it. It’s a bit of a lottery, really. Didn’t get onto two flights, but the third one (which was the latest flight I could possibly get if I was to still make my train) I did get on to! Hurrah! All I had to worry about now was getting my bags, finding the station, getting my ticket which should have been faxed through and getting on the train. Of course, Lufthansa forgot to stick my bag on the plane, so I had to come back at 10pm, or they’d send it up to me. By that time, I was barely going to make my train, if at all, so I figured I may as well just stay at the airport. My bag did come through on the next flight, thankfully, so I spent an uncomfortable night in the arrivals lounge, before heading down to the Tube station at 5.45am to catch the train from Kings Cross. After spending £80 on a ticket (and that was WITH a railcard), got on the train, and finally got home. Bit annoying though, I’m going to look into the terms of my insurance policy to see if it may cover this at all.
Anyway, long story short, I’m back home, for now. Got a trip to Rome in a couple of weeks for a week, but otherwise, I’m here in St Andrews until, well, next summer. It’s kind of good to be back, except, of course, my hard disk had just died before I set off to Brazil, so I’m in the process of reinstalling my main PC. It lets me clear out a load of junk, I suppose.
When in Brazil, I took a load of photos, as usual, and maintained a sort of ‘diary’. I’ll post this up in the coming days.
