Trafalgar Square, your location for the arts in London

It was a chance for anyone to show off their secret talents, voice an opinion, start a protest, dance, be naked, teach, advertise, or even just sit up there and talk on their phone while they video tape the people below. With 2,400 individual performances you can just imagine the variety of personalities that were brave enough to share themselves with the people of London.

An Open Letter to Gordon Ramsay on his restaurant, Maze Grill in London

As the steaks arrived on their fancy cutting board with juice catching reservoir, I have to admit I was excited. Cutting into the tender flesh I was impressed with the prefect cook of the meat, a medium rare to be sure. As I put the steak to my tongue, I expected to taste heaven on a fork for my £28.50.

Scott’s a lumberjack and he’s okay!

One of the smallest spaces we got to share with Karen and Steve was a private dorm for 4 with shared bathroom at the Generator hostel in London. It even seemed smaller then a tent trailer! Our small room in the generator had 2 bunk beds and a sink with about a meter wide x 6 feet long floor space. Needless to say we all took turns getting ready, one person gets ready and grabs their stuff while the rest sit on their bed and wait their turn.

Shedding Unexpected Pounds


When I was budgeting for this trip, I looked online to see how much items were and figured a decent budget for room, food, beer and entertainment. I looked online and thought I had a grasp on it, but once we hit England the shock of exchange rates really started to get us.

Our one regret about Paris

If there are two things that Paris taught us; always practice the RFN law (right f’ing now) but watch out for your hunger, as that will over rule all!

Seeing the Louvre in an afternoon

With over 100,000 objects located in over 652,300 square feet, the world famous Louvre is a treasure to both humanity and France. But one thing that people constantly state is that you “can’t see the Louvre” in a day which I completely disagree with.

Drinking undercover in front of the Eiffel Tower


We all have that list inside our mind. The list of things you want to do and see in this life. Some things are easy to check off, others require a bit of work, and some might never happen. One thing on my list is to sit in front of the Eiffel Tower and drink wine while eating bread and cheese.

Stealing skulls from the Catacombs in Paris?

Walking through the dark passageways is a bit creepy, with up to millions skulls looking at you. The arrangements are from standard femur and skull structures to patterns of skulls in different symbols to mini rooms with models carved out of stone by the previous miners in dedication to ones who lost their lives.

Living dangerously in Paris : The Village Hostel

Worst place we stayed. Broken bunk bed. Mattress on the floor. Craptastic futon. Sketchy ass stairwell to get to it. It had a super nice kitchen and bathroom.

So when the owner told us that we were upgraded to an apartment from a 4 bed dorm, my expectations raised. Here’s what we got upgraded to:

Our own Tour de France


If you find yourself in Bayeux going to one of the Normandy beaches, I’ll give you a hint everyone forgot to mention to us. Don’t ride a bloody bike unless you’re used to being on one for such long distances! Instead, rent a scooter if you can find one. It would be much more enjoyable and your ass won’t feel as if it belonged to an East Van hooker for the next couple of days.
