I wish it was 1997…(a postcard from Florida)

Today I received a postcard from my kid brother. I don’t often mention young Danny, aged 15, my only blood brother and my favourite person in the world.

Now I just got home from work and got this postcard, which was Read more about I wish it was 1997…(a postcard from Florida)[…]

Backpacking in the USA: Doing the The Circle Line Cruise in New York

Thinking again recently about my magical whirlwind world trip in 2007 made me realise that YES I was actually in New York!! I did a lot of sightseeing when I was there.

“Just one more thing…” – My Love of Columbo and Peter Falk

Seriously right, if you’ve never watched Columbo before, get into it. I must say I do not watch a lot of television, and when I do its normally older or vintage stuff (Only Fools and Horses, The Likely Lads etc..) and hence my fascination and addictation to the legend of the Los Angeles Police Department, Read more about “Just one more thing…” – My Love of Columbo and Peter Falk[…]

It was pretty inevitable really. At some point or other in my life I was going to go to the top of it.

Backpacking in the USA: The White Stripes Trip to Staten Island, New York

While staying at Hostelling International at New York City (incidently the largest hostel in the USA), I had put my name down for a few of the hostel’s organised tours. One of these was a weekly Wednesday night free trip and tour of Staten Island. The ferry across was free after 6 pm I think.
