There’s a dive bar near my place of work in Shanghai known as C’s (not sure what the C stands for…). In my first month in Shanghai I went there with my girlfriend where she taught me the infamous DICE GAME that rattles across many pubs in China.
The second time I left the country came at a point where the project I was working on at the time (Operation Flashpoint: Dragon Rising) got an extension.
I forgot to mention in my posts prior to Amsterdam that flying to Schiphol was the first time I had ever been on a commercial flight.
I was alone.
I was nervous.
So, naturally, I sat off in the Wetherspoon’s in Birmingham International with a pint of Guinness to calm myself down.
Brighton is a city that feels extremely ‘touristy’, yet at the same time is an amazing part of the country that has it’s own unique culture. You’ll meet punks, eat vegetarian (well maybe not, but you can), relax on a rock beach and get drunk watching live music.
An obvious aspect of Amsterdam we wanted to explore was beer. If you walk through Amsterdam’s city centre for more than a minute you are bound to see a bar with a Heineken sign sticking out of it. So we decided to visit the Heineken brewery.
The night-life in Amsterdam is definitely worth experiencing. A huge array of pubs, bars and clubs can be found, just as in any city.
My first holiday abroad was your typical holiday. 5 young men going to Amsterdam to get high and party. It was a friend’s kind-of birthday party back in 2009, and was my first time leaving the country*.
I travel. A lot.
I hope to keep on travelling. A lot.
As it stands there are no real records of my travels, apart from a few photos on Facebook, so I’ve decided to keep a record of my travels here.
