I’ve been meaning to make some posts for a while now, but I’ve been very busy. I recently started a new job, and prior to that I went on a short holiday to Belgium. I went to see the Belgium Formula 1 Grand Prix in Spa. I stayed in Brussels for four nights. When I wasn’t at the Grand Prix I managed to see some of its sights, including its chocolate museum and the Grand Place. Hopefully, I’ll get some time soon, to add more of my holiday snaps.
As for today – I went to the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall to see Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman. They were doing a tour to promote promote their new book: Long Way Round. It documents their 20,000 miles motor bike journey around the world. (London to New York, via Russia, Mongolia, Alaska, Canada….).
It was an entertaining event, with Ewan and Charley explaining why they undertook the journey, their preparations, crashes, the people they met, including local mafia types and Mongolian nomads.
At the end I got a signed copy of their book, which I’ll start reading once I’ve got through the ten books that I’ve planned to read beforehand. For more info visit their official website.
