As i am studying my PGCE at the University of Warwick, an opportunity has come up. I have just sent off an application to teach Maths in africa for the summer term. The whole trip and experience is paid for by the university, including spending money and weekend trips. There are a lot of applicants and very few spaces and there seems to be some kind of interview and long winded selection process. Im thinking the chances that i get chosen are slim but hey heres hopin. There are three schools that i can be placed in; one in South Africa, one in Tanzania and one in Ghana. Not quite sure on my preferences. Anyways I find out on tuesday 2nd feb if I am invited for interview! will keep an update on here... :o)

Its not so much that they aren't significant, more that there not worth me writing a great deal on and uploading photos for... These will tend to be family holidays when I was real young or very short trips away.
so with family we pretty much never left the country, our only trip abroad being once to America. Well and I have been to Goa a couple of times with my Dad but ill put that in a seperate post with some photos later. The others are quite short trips such as Dublin (Ireland), Edingburgh (Scotland), Lourdes (France), Malia (Greece) and Cologne (Germany).
America was pretty kool, though i was probably to young (about 13 years old) to really appreciate it but i do remember it was the first time i ever saw a chinese buffet eat as much as you like! heaven... Being with the rents meant I wasnt really on much of a shoe string budget (which i never really appreciated until i went travelling without them!) so we did the lot, travelling around california. Universal studios, Hollywood, Shamu, Disney World, Grand Kanyon, it goes on! All round pretty damn good holiday.
Edinburgh was only last year for new years eve(starting 2009) we went down for Hogmanay. A friend has university accomodation there so we spent a couple days and nights. Foods good, beautiful city and Hogmanay made for a great experience...
The rest, well theres not much to say really, some were school trips, some were lads holidays. All great experiences but nothing significant to write about. :o)

So for aaages I have been trying to find a way of storing all my travels, plans and ambitions. A way of keeping track of where iv been what iv done. I concidered treating myself to an external hard drive to put all my holiday photos, videos and pretty much store my life on there! but reading reviews, it seems that they're not all that reliable and I could lose it all with a knock. I suppose nothing can beat a physical hard copy of a diary or photo album. But with my intentions im gna need an infinite supply! so this is it, by final means of life storage... a blog.
The idea is growing on me actually, though there probably isn't anyone in the world reading it right now, i can see it helping me keep track of things. Storage is my main reason, but theres so many bonuses... the idea of friends and family being able to see what i am upto whilst im away is pretty sweet. Not really something you could do with a physical diary. Unfortunately, at the moment there are no trips planned for any time soon. I am currently studying a PGCE and time is just not available to spend abroad. Though, annoyingly I am suppose to be in Lanzerote learning to SCUBA dive right now, however I said no to a free holiday as I felt I shouldnt miss the 4 days of uni that would have done. 2nd day at uni now and already regreting my decision, its looking like the rest of the week is going to be cancled due to severe weather warnings... whilst its about mid 20s on the beach of Lanzerote. Well u can't make the correct decision everytime!
Having said that there is no time to go away, I have some how managed to find the time to start up a blog, procastination at its best is what that is. whilst i am in this dry patch of no travelling, I will hopefully find time to start backlogging my trips and experiences until I am upto date with beautiful photos and all sorts! im kinda depending on this blog being around for the rest of my life so I could be 80 years old and see where i went when I was 20. and I can still be adding things to my lists. Reality tells me that something is going to take over at some point, and probably not in the far future. Well heres hoping it doesn't... :o)

Its almost too late, as a lot of traveling and eating has already been done. But I figured that I am only 22 and have a lifetime of travelling left in me. :o)
For the record, i will post up my previous experiences and travels from the last few years untill i am up to date.
This is a blog of my Travels, Consumptions and Experiences...
