Hi all, I AM alive, I've just been having massive internet problems recently. It's day 54 into my trip, and the exploration part looks to be almost over now. I was in London for a few days after my contiki, saw a few parts of the city i had neglected, such as the British Museum and British Library. The museum was quite interesting, though I had to say the library I could have given a miss. I also got to meet up with a friend in London who I hadn't seen in about 12 years. It was wonderful seeing her again, as well as meeting her friend. Hopefully i will be able to spend a few days catching up with Katherine when i return to London. I was also up in Warwick visiting my mum's cousin Kyla and her husband Richard, who were very nice and showed me around the place, as well as taking me up through Manchester to go to Warrington to visit Kyla's mother and her husband. Had a great time up there, went to Wales to a small village called Llangollen (pronounced Chlangothlen), and even got to see a meteor shower late that night. Was a well spent weekend. I'm in Norwich for the meantime, visiting some of my Dad's cousins. Actually I met half a dozen of them last night at the pub, was quite nice to meet some of Dad's family, considering I had only really met a couple of them before. I'll be in Norwich until sunday when I leave at midday for London, where I'll hopefully be spending a couple of days catching up with Katherine before i head up to Whitstable, in Kent, to spend the rest of my time in England working. My blog posts will most likely be ending there, though i will keep up the site, in case i do end up getting to other countries once I have the money from working. I'm hoping to go to Paris, Amsterdam and Austria again, and possibly Thailand on my way back home, although I have many other places I wouldn't mind going. Decisions, decisions haha.
