Tube Strike Tips (from a bus rider)

This past Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, there’s been a Tube strike here in London.  Unsurprisingly, things have been quite tense on the morning and afternoon commute and getting around has been more painful than usual.  With another round of proposed strikes for next week, I thought I might just share a bit of advice for … Continue reading Tube Strike Tips (from a bus rider)

A special kind of hell…

Jetlag.  Oh my freaking hell-balls how I hate it.  My body clock is beyond screwed up right now and I feel (and look) pretty much zombified.

Trip the light fantastic
