I just thought I'd pop by and say hello since you were one of the first people I talked to here on h2g2...I joined last May and then sort of lost touch, but I'm back and more active then ever!

Hi Maddy!
Sorry about the delayed reply here smiley - smiley I've been Inter-railing around Europe! I was away for the whole of October. I got the ferry from Amsterdam to Newcastle at the weekend and only got back to Edinburgh yesterday.
How are you?? Good to hear from you smiley - smiley

I think I went almost everywhere! I flew to Lisbon (in Portugal) and from there I went by train to Madrid, Perigueux (France), Luxembourg, Zurich, Vaduz (Leichtenstein), Vienna, Bratislava (Slovakia), Copenhagen, Berlin, Warsaw, Vilnius (Lithuania), Riga (Latvia), Tallin (Estonia), back to Vilnius and Warsaw, then onto Budapest, Bucharest, and Istanbul. From there I headed back north to Amsterdam (that took 3 days solid on trains!) and from there I got the ferry back to Newcastle (where my girlfriend lives) and finally back here to Edinburgh. There were ups and downs, but mostly ups, and I met quite a few people on my travels - including some Canadians! I'll have to write up my journal soon, before I start to forget stuff. I didn't take a camera, but I had intended buying a desposable one (or two) but I'm so crap I never got round to it! Anyway, I had a great time, I'm looking forward to more travelling in the future smiley - biggrin.

You didn't bring a camera?! lol. When I went to Greece and Italy a year and a half ago I took enough pictures to fill two photo albums! I think I was afraid I'd forget what everything looked like when I got back home!

Hi Maddy, how's life?

I'm still in Edinburgh, only just started looking for work again - I might be a motorcycle courier! Failing that (finding a non-boring job that is) I'll go to Italy, since it's much sunnier there.

See you smiley - smiley

Life is kind of boring at the moment, but I'm having fun fiddling around with my new computer...

Good luck with the job hunt! Motorcycle courier sounds like a fun job. A cold one, but fun!

What's the weather like in Edinburgh?

Hi Maddy smiley - smiley
I got the job - and yes, it's cold! But it's pretty good fun, the other couriers are a good laugh too. Most of them are bicycle couriers, it's just me and another guy on motorbikes.

The weather has turned cold again here in Scotland - and the rest of Britain too. It's really cold in the mornings on the bike, but it gets better by the afternoon. And I get loads of sympathy from all the receptionists in the nice warm offices I go to!

How's the new computer - is it behaving? smiley - winkeye

It's behaving pretty well, so far....I'm still getting used to being a Mac user again...but I'm adjusting pretty well. Except now I'm spending way too much time on it! lol
