Flying High: Blind Dates and Bucket Lists

When an old colleague of mine proceeded to set me up on a blind date with a friend of his, all the usual thoughts crossed my mind. I’ve never been one to dislike dating, but nonetheless, an awkwardly silent dinner with an awkward, silent, unattractive man was not something I was keen on.

Interestingly, I was told to meet him at midday (a day date! I like them) in a rather dubious location. At an old airfield close by to the airport, to be precise.

Living the Dream?

I am at the age now where most people are getting married and having babies and I am sure you have all seen the posts on facebook but I really am over here thinking about what country I should travel to next. I am not sure you ever really get over the travel bug even if you live in a new country you still want to explore so much more.

Living in a new country is by far one the best things I can recommend anyone to do but be prepared it is also the hardest!
