"I've been driving in my car/It don't look much but I've been far"

As I sat in traffic this morning, I noticed that since I bought my first car last year that I have driven about 38,000 miles. The vast majority of this distance being my daily commute to work.

The circumference of the Earth is about 24,900 miles.

So in under 15 months, I've covered enough miles to have traversed the planet 1.5 times.

The drive from Glasgow to Fife is nice and all, but I'm sure the global journey would have been much more exciting.

The weather this weekend was fantastic, so we decided to take a trip down to the Ayrshire Coast which is only about an hour southwest of Glasgow. Took the coastal route and spent most of the day on the grounds of Culzean Castle.

Phoenix @ King Tuts

Music that sounds like a perfect summer weekend: fun, full of sweetness and sunshine, and over much too soon.

The new album is an essential add to your record collection. First single Long Distance Call has somehow already managed to top my iTunes Play Count list.

Czech Mate

This post is far too many months late, so just the bullet points:
  • Cheap European flights make long weekends to the Czech Republic a resonable option.
  • Prague is gorgeous in the snow. In fact, it's gorgeous full-stop.

  • Leaving one cold place to go to another is a legitimate holiday option, despite what British people tell you.
  • Meeting old friends is even better when abroad.

  • The beer does taste better (for whatever reason). For those who know Steve, he doesn't drink beer - but he seemed to enjoy it here. The thought that he was humouring me did cross my mind right enough.

  • It may be more popular these days, but good value is still to be found. Pints under £1 were to be had.
  • The meaning of life can be found in an old smoky bar at the bottom of a glass of Becherovka.
