Germany vs. Argentina

Today was all about The Game.

Tourist Day in Berlin

Took a little bus tour around the city today to hit the major sights. A couple annoying guys hopped on at the last minute and were really loud and talking during the english portions of the commentary.

Laundry, finally.

The reception gave us the address of this place a couple stops down on the U-Bahn. At first it didn’t look like anything but a cafe butin the back is the washing section.

Paris to Berlin – You Will Be Clean

Well, on the train today. Got up without a problem and headed over to Gare du Nord and got our Eurorail tickets.


Hopped the double decker tour bus today to just travke around town and get the commentary.

Paris Day 2.5 / Catacombs / Arc de Triomphe

The internet connection has been a bit lacking the last few days…. Hopped over this morning to the Catacombs to check out millions of dead people.

Art, Hunchbacks, and the Eiffel Tower

Today I woke up about 10:30 from a dead sleep and just layed in bed for another 45 minutes. Guess I was tired!


After getting from Gare du Nord to the hotel in Montmartre I think it was a good choice.

London to Paris

Today’s a travel day so it should be mellow. We checked out of the hotel at noon after sitting in a Starbucks this morning.

Bath is Beautiful

After the Stonehenge moment I was happy to finally get out to Bath, which is a beautiful town.

Behold The Awesomeness

This morning headed out early to hit Windsor Castle, Stonehenge and Bath. Way early, I’m bleary eyed right now writing this at midnight.

O2 Wireless Festival Hyde Park

GOGOL BORDELLO JUST RULED THE DAY! They were so awesome I loved every minute they were on stage.

Dear Mom, Cadavers are Cool.

Dear Mom,I went to an exhibit today that you would consider to be a house of horrors. I found it terribly interesting.

Random London Wanderings

Things I learned today, Beefeaters really did eat beef, police “Bobbies” got their name from police chief “Robert”, Guy Fawkes real name was Guido Fawkes, Henry the VIII was pretty much an idiot, the London Eye is not for the claustrophobic, the Thames still has eels as I saw a bird eating one, I still laugh at the unfortunate street named “Cockspur”, I just laughed writing that, hands down Harrod’s hires the most insanely beautiful women, I kind miss all the pigeon’s at Trafalger Square, Star of India might be a good place to eat but it doesn’t open at 5pm.


Played tourist today and just traveled around the city taking in some sights. Hopped on and off the bus until lunch when we hit Nando’s in Soho.

Def Leppard & Cheap Trick at The Hammersmith Apollo

Aw yeah… Rock Rock ’til you drop!

The Start of Europa Tour 2006

Off to Europa! First London for the week, then the train to Paris, then to Berlin where we’ll be in the middle of the World Cup, and then to Amsterdam for that last bit.

Saints & Sinners Lounge

There was a little meeting of the Ghosties crew at the [Saints & Sinners Lounge] Tuesday night. Lots of Martinis were had by all. In fact I think I doubled my entire lifetime intake of Martinis that night. Not a big Martini drinker so round about 4 in the morning I was a hurting puppy. […]

Calexico at The Music Box

[CALEXICO AUDIO SNIPPET] Music to sway by. Calexico are sooo good! I’ve been having the hardest time seeing them as they’ve come through town a couple times while I’ve been away or I just couldn’t make it, etc. So finally! The name is taken from a small border town in California, and it’s Mexican side […]

Win, Win, Lose, Win, Lose, Win, Lose… Steak Dinner For Me!

Horse racing! Always bet on the Irish horse. They always kick our California horses asses. You’d never know gambling’s illegal in California. Somebody should probably tell the Indian casinos, lotteries and race tracks. I arrived too late to bet on the first race but I was on fire for the next seven! Aw yeah, steak […]
