News on the march! – Xander heads for the capital!

It’s a shame, and almost morally wrong, to knock that beautiful picture of barrels of beer off the top of the blog. However, I reasoned it would happen soon enough so here we are. Today I woke up, summer seems to have been a brief 3-4 days over a...

Let’s get cracking!

Just thought I’d clear the smoke and make my dramatic entrance. I have been eating salads for over a week now; lettuce, tomato, ham and feta with olive oil. This is because I only have access to fairly primitive cooking appliances as I am on holiday. I must say...
