July In Vancouver

The weather for the most part, is, and has been fantastic, and for the tourist, Vancouver is in full hustle and bustle, which means music is in full swing. There’s lots of live music to watch and listen to, but lately, as a full time performer/artist, I’m finding that many larger chains, or established venues,

The Journey Home

After a quick Java stop, I caught a morning plane from Gatwick Airport Wednesday March 7th. On the journey home, I reflect about attempting to take in a few of Englands colourful cities and long deep history over the past two weeks.

Brighton To London

Rollin on the northbound train today, but here’s a quick summary of the last few days:  People drive on the wrong side of the road. Cars can be parked both ways on a street. The bakery down the street is amazing. Bought a guitar. Starbucks is just like in Canada, only if you want cream

A few short local trips around the area have proved to be historically amazing, and if you add the sunshine and good company, this trip has been epic so far. Ok, let’s get started… Bodiam Castle (National Trust).  Originally and
