The Musings of a Semi-man man

Me, things I like and random thoughts, welcome to a sporadically updated blog with no real theme! Pull up a chair, have some dip, it's nice, it's made from chickpeas I think...

On my travels

I like to think I’ve done a bit of exploring of the world by now, loads still to go but one universal truth has struck me:

You can always, always, spot the Americans. But, my god, you couldn’t listen to them!

I have no doubt there are any number of Americans who can travel without making a big deal of it but my god there are a huge number who can’t!


Someone in the hotel in staying in in Cusco, Peru has been blasting Robbie Williams since 6:30am!

Dude you aren’t the only person staying here and the walls are paper thin! It’s bad enough the traffic and beeping horns kept waking everyone up all night.

Show some consideration you git!

Travel diary

Hello dear reader:

Regular readers or payers attention to of my blog will know I’m travelling at the minute. I’m currently in Quito in Ecuador having been to the Gal├ípagos Islands. I’m heading to Lima in the morning.

Anyway, the reason for this post is twofold;

1) ecuadorian drivers are crazy crazy people, and,
2) when you’re away for a long period with a backpack you remember how adept you became last time at washing clothes in hotel sinks.

Anyway, that’s all for now, so it’ll have to hold you over!

Hasta luego!

Dearest followers
