new country, same old div

I think most people in a new country and after a day of flying wouldn’t spend their first night getting drunk. I am however not your normal person! Read more

Ross’ African adventure!

Well guys if the “African edition” was a rather poor hint at my future plans I now have an itinerary so I can actually tell you lot exactly what I’ll be doing on my upcoming holiday (I have realised that I actually head off next week!!). Being a fan of good food, wine, drinking, nature and animals (NOT in a physical sense) I reckon that South Africa is going to be a pretty damn awesome holiday destination and will hopefully make up for me missing the Oktoberfest (which I had previously been to for three years straight!). I am going cross country from Port Elizabeth (or as they call it PE) to Cape Town (where my good good friend and former work colleague at LSBU Linda now lives) so should be able to see a good load of stuff.

While I have no idea what I will be doing in most of these places but its good that I do at least know where I will be, in order to wet your appetite for some classic photos and pictures when I return please check out my itinerary (and read about my holiday sweepstakes!) Read more

I had heard that Brighton had a number of good places, some had been suggested to me, others just looked nice and others I had seen on TV. I managed to get into one each of these and I am still feeling pretty full from all this – and I don’t think my waist-line is very happy! Read more

d.Construct – the socialising

After stretching my legs (believe me I needed to after being scrunched into those wee seats (I’ll stop mentioning them after I get blood flowing through my feet again) I made my way down to the after-party which was being held on the beach front via my lovely hotel.

The place to be was The Terraces and I certainly was there, until they kicked me out! Read more

d.Construct – the conference

Well yes – that was certainly a very, very good way to spend a weekend – there is so much that I could be talking about that I have split the weekend into three bumper packed fun packed posts – I WILL waffle so bear with it, it will be worth it!

This first half is to cover the conference itself Read more
