Backpacking around the world

Sunday, July 20th, 2008

After college I took a backpacking trip to Europe with my friend Tom. It was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had and really made me want to travel more. That trip was full of feelings, experiences, and problems that only other world backpackers would understand. Last night while watching TV I came across a shortened version of this documentary A Map for Saturday that brought back all of my memories from that trip. Maybe to help with my dizzying array of choices I’m facing right now I should just take a year off and do something like this guy did? Tom are you free?

London Underground Disused Stations

Thursday, May 5th, 2005

Yesterday night I happened to leave my TV on PBS after I finished watching NOVA and a interesting show called “Spy” came on. It’s a British reality show where contestants are trained to be spy’s (as the name implys). The episode I saw involved an abandoned tube station called “Strand Street”. I got curious about this and found this neat website:
Underground History – Disused Stations on Londons Underground

I’m not sure why, but sites like this are really interesting to me.
