Europe’s Top Cities- Half Way There

So we are half way through the list of my favourite European cities and have journeyed to fifteen different cities in thirteen different countries. You probably haven’t learnt much other than I break down a lot, fail to prepare accordingly for my trips and I am very fond of the Norwegian countryside. These posts haven’t offered much in the way of travel advice and things to see but I hope you have enjoyed them so far. Over the next couple weeks we will count down to the number one spot and hopefully I will have chosen one by then, but that is proving to be a tricky task.

If you have missed any so far or just want to refresh your memory of the list so far, here they all are;

New Podcast Episode Out Now- Rome- Kebab Gladiators

The latest episode of the podcast is now live, and it is rammed with all kinds of nonsense and knowledge. This one really covers it all as the road trip rumbles through Rome and takes a wild detour to Portugal. There are facts about the ancient empire and tales of kebab shop miracles. The lads…

New Podcast Episode Out Now- Pisa- The Wonky Erection

The latest podcast is now live, and I think this one is very much worth a listen. When we drove to Pisa, we thought there would just be a slightly lopsided tower, but there was so much more than that. Not only does this pod touch on the history of this coastal city and why…

New Podcast Episode Out Now!

Boris has laid out the plans for the return of travelling in a few months time, but until then why not tune in to ‘What’s In Matt’s Head?’ to quench your holiday thirst. Episode 2 is now live on Spotify, Anchor and Pocket Casts and it might inspire you to head to Barcelona this summer.…

Brand New Podcast Out Now

It seems you either come out of lockdown with a dog or a podcast, and we’ve already got a couple of pups at home so here is my brand-new podcast. It’s all about driving around Europe and has some great stories and, surprisingly, quite a few facts. Will, Charlie and I talk you through our…

How Covid-19 Is Threatening The Premier League Season

The number of positive tests returned by Premier League players in the last week has surged up to 40, more than double the previous week’s high of 18. With four games having already been postponed there is serious risk of an unfulfillable fixture pile upbringing into question the sustainability of the season. With the density…

Book Review- A Brief History Of Time by Stephen Hawking

‘A physicist is just an atoms way of looking at itself’- Niels Bohr There is a time and a place to read A Brief History of Time, probably, but 6:30am in the back of a pickup truck definitely isn’t it. Trying to get a basic understanding of string theory, space-time and particle physics whilst half asleep, bumping…

Book Review- Divided by Tim Marshall

The world is building walls, and it is building them fast. Half of all border barriers erected since the end of the second world war have been put up in this century and European nations could soon have more miles of fortified barriers than at the height of the cold war. Modern borders are being…

Book Review- The Thursday Murder Club By Richard Osman

A couple of weeks ago, the inevitable happened, I tested positive for the coronavirus. I still don’t know how or where I got it from, I guess it’s just hanging around most of the country now. I only lost my sense of smell and taste so it wasn’t too bad considering how much worse it…

Book Review- Factfulness By Hans Rosling

It is good to have a balance to reading, to flick between fiction and non-fiction, from thriller to biography, from horror to history. After the harrowing Uninhabitable Earth, it was important to read something optimistic and hopeful, to find some good news and cause for celebration, and Han Rosling’s Factfulness is just that, it was the antidote to despair,…

Book Review- The Uninhabitable Earth

I got a bit a side-tracked about toilets in my post about Dishonesty Is The Second Best Policy but for this book, I can think of no better place to read it, as it might make you shit yourself. The Uninhabitable Earth is a terrifying eye-opener into the devastating scale and cataclysmic complexity of Climate Change, in his opening…

Book Review- Shakespeare By Bill Bryson

I have been given the gift of time, which is nice as it’s not even Christmas yet. Travelling the long slog to work has gifted me the opportunity to get a little reading done on the lengthy journey to a cold building site. It isn’t really a present as such, but more of a silver…

Success! You're on the list.
