31 October 06 - 21:24The good the bad and the snow...

The last couple days have been very... exciting, emotional, taxing... its hard to put into words.

Early yesterday morning I received news from home. My grandfather passed away. Rest in Peace Grandad, you were a great man. My thoughts and emotions are certainly with all my family back home and it is difficult because I am so far away.

Shortly after receiving the phonecall, from my mum, my cousins wife went into labour. The baby finally being born 31 hours later around 830 this morning.

It snowed for the first time a couple days ago and it is snowing right now. I just got back from a walk around the lake. What you could call my first real snow experience.

From doing very little in Finland things certainly changed very quickly.

Arn't I just.

Oh well. Such as having the ability to sit around and do nothing after being on the move for such a long time.

I have finally bothered to upload a couple pictures out of the thousands I have. It's only a few but still better then nothing. Most of the pictures I have are of buildings and landscapes and such. Great for printing and framing but not too much fun if you havn't been there. I might through some up later but for now I have just selected some with my head and a famous thing plus a few from Oktoberfest.

08 October 06 - 03:33Finland once again

Well If you havn't already guessed I arrived safely in Finland. Back with my cousin and his wife. 

Hopefully over the next few weeks ill get my act together in regards to my photo gallery and spend some time catching up on certain things I have missed while I have been traveling.

As for the continuing arguments about the AFL. Suey you are wrong. That settles that.

01 October 06 - 18:23The land of the Irish

Finally I have access to some internet with a decent keyboard! I can type at more then 3 words per minute now!

Anyway...

I had a great time chilling out in Bristol. Spend the week doing very english things. Watching Football at the Pub, drinking at the Pub, drinking tea, eating crumpets and even having a proper cooked english breakfast. I even got the chance to get out to see Stonehenge last Monday. Saw the pub in which Treasure Island was written and another old pub with a door, apparently, made with human skin. England being England it rained a bit and so we went to the cinema. Funnily enough we went to see Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Mans Chest.

Arrived here in Dublin last night. Spent the night in a cheap but nothing special hostel. Tonight and the next three nights I am in a much better one. It even has free internet. Hence the posting :)

Now... I must get out to the Guinness Factory. If it stops raining long enough... Maybe tomorrow.

Oh... I know my Gallery is severally lacking... I arrive in Finland on Thursday and will be able to use a great connection to finally update that section. I have so many photos :/
