The Perils of South Leamington and Buses

This morning I beat the bus up the parade.

I set off from the house 5 minutes before the bus was due to get to the nearest bus stop (St Helen's Road – pretty far South!), and I plodded up Brunswick Street and then up the Parade, going via Tesco where I made a leisurely decision about which fruit juice to buy, where the checkout woman was irritatingly slow counting change… and I still got the bus I would have caught with about 5 minutes to spare. How?! How much time am I missing in bed whilst sitting on the bus that goes no faster than a pedestrian?!

Please save us from hypothermia! It's not normal to wear coats inside in July… even in England…

Spirit of India

Writing about web page

This is the 'intrepid traveller' tour I'm going to do when I finish my placement in Tamil Nadu in India next year. I have to get myself from Chennai up to Delhi first…

It's called the 'Spirit of India' – 28 days – included Delhi, Taj Mahal, Varanasi, tiger and bird parks, camel safari, forts, castles, havelis, holy rivers, erotic temples, ghats, markets, Chitrakoot, Orchha…

I get to go on a train, rickshaw, riverboat, taxi, jeep, local bus, minibus, tempo, bicycle and camel!

Has anyone ever been on an Intrepid Traveller tour? I haven't booked yet, so if they're crap please tell me now!!

Univ'icy'ty House

I've decided to change my blog's appearance from the hideously bright, but nevertheless warm and cheerful stripes that occupied this space before. I now have ice. This represents, among other things, the fact that freezing in University House, leaving me with white fingers and a cold nose. Not that it's much better outside…

Ice feels appropriate.
