27 / 7 / 2018 - It only took a week of being in London for me to get around to writing something again - our review of Jordan is now up!
I know, it isn't talking about bags, which is what you really want, but, more bags coming soon - but in the meantime I also updated my carry-on suggestion with a new bag that is just being released now!

 20 / 7 / 2018 - Back in London, so trying to get a few more things written. In the meantime I will keep updating the reading list.

8 / 7 / 2018 - Wrote about the best carry on bag! Will have another update for the reading list this week too

30 / 6 / 2018 - Posted the start of my reading list. There will be more coming (and more content in general too) but wanted to get something up for Monday morning. Next up - review of bags!

24 / 6 / 2018 - Istanbul - Apparently the internet in every hotel we have stayed in during our Turkey tour sucks. That and being busy doing things. But I have something for tomorrow morning hopefully. Stay tuned!

14 / 6 / 2018 - Cyprus - Well that took longer than expected. Apparently some of the places I was travelling meant I couldn't actually post things when I wanted to. Despite that I have finally posting something about Paris, and have a couple of other things on the go.

2 / 6 / 2018 - Amman, Jordan - I have posted something again! Well, it isn't much of anything, but ideally I will have a real post in the next few days to carry on from it. 

28 / 5 / 2018 - Real content (or at least new things) coming soon! In the mean time here are some more fantastic inventions I have come up with.

17 / 5 / 2018 - Could this website be getting used again? How wild would that be? I expect I will have more free time when I am unemployed, so, let's see if we can't make this a site where things are posted again!

7 / 3 / 2016 - After a rough month I have written a few new things that should be coming out in March and April. I have about a month off work, so might get to actually update this with things too.

9 / 2 / 2016 - London - Well I screwed that up didn't I?
Super busy at the moment so no time to sort out what content is ready for posting. Will try and find time this week but doesn't look likely. Let's say pretend it is because of the public holiday.

30 / 1 / 2016 - London - Haven't quite got things written ahead of time anymore, but I am at least keeping pace. New post on Monday.

22 / 1 / 2016 - London - And back to it... have another blog lined up for Monday, and a few more that should be ready for the coming weeks.
Do you want to know how to fix University and fat people? Do you want to know what I did in December? How about some more stories about things that annoy me in airports?

Enter your email address below and find out first for new posts!

12 / 1 / 2016 - London - Stuff is coming. I've got a 1,000 or so words written on Sweden, 3,000 in more travel stories, and another 1,000 for footnotes to December. There are also some more inventions lined up. Just need to get back into a routine and they will start coming again. Will post something by Monday.

23 / 12 / 2015 - London - OK, Christmas post is up... hopefully I come back in the New Year to post some more.

Merry Christmas etc.

22 / 12 / 15 - London - It's almost Christmas! I think there will be one, maybe two Mondays without a post. But don't worry, I'll be working hard on new content for the new year.
Check out some of the older posts if you are really missing me - there are quite a few there.

14 / 12 / 2015 - London - With scheduled posts I am even forgetting to come update here. There are a couple since my last post - I especially liked the review of going to the movies in the UK from last week.

Keep reading - tell your friends!

1 / 12 / 2015 - London - OK, we are locked in up to Christmas. In the next few weeks you can find out what I think about going to the movies in England (and the movie industry in general), you can find out what I did in November (lots of fun stuff), and you can find out all about that time I got to fly first class. Then as a Christmas present a sneak peek at what I will be up to over Christmas and New Years (which might equally double for the plot of a horror film).
I realise my update from four days ago said very similar things, but this time I mean it.

27 / 11 / 2015 - London - So I have things prepared for the 30th, the 7th, the 14th, and likely the 21st - seeing you right through to Christmas eve when I should post a preview of my Christmas holiday adventure (my before thoughts).
I will take a break then, and early in the new year come back with more new content - trying to keep up the weekly releases.

17 / 11 / 2015 - London - That might actually be the first time I have posted each week for a whole month. Somehow I used to be a lot better at posting stuff when it was actually part of my job.

13 / 11 / 2015 - London - Another post scheduled to go. Every Monday all the time. Sometimes.

11 / 11 / 2015 - London - Sure, the hammock post wasn't great, but content is content. Isn't it?
Three more posts written and scheduled for the coming weeks, and a couple more drafts in progress - let's get through to Christmas.

2 / 11 / 2015 - Santa Monica - Look, another post! Man I am good. Sure, I didn't actually review this one, so could be horrible to read, but bad content is better than no content. Presumably.

25 / 10 / 2015 - London - OK, I am back in the swing of things - new posts are written and schedule for every Monday for the next month of so. Also have another things half written, there might be new content all the way to Christmas! It will be just like... Christmas... I guess.

(also, if you want to find out about the posts when they are made, sign up below. It is a lot easier then waiting for a link on Facebook)

19 / 10 / 2015 - London - Another month, another post. Seems about right? I will try to have something else written for next week. I guess. I have been doing a lot, but with a liberal sprinkling of working late, so who knows how well it works out.

11 / 9 / 2015 - London - I am on quite a roll now (sort of), but heading away for a week. Will hopefully have something that will get automatically posted early next week without my influence, but if not just read some of the older things instead?

Or I guess more likely, don't come to the site at all?

7 / 9 / 2015 - London - A quick one to start the week. My first new invention idea in a while, and it is set to be a great success. Feel free to send your wallets in directly.

4 / 9 / 2015 - London - Minor site update. Playing with some ad content, and also how things look on the main and blog pages. Did I need to write this? No, clearly not.

1 / 9 / 2015 - London - I don't know if two posts counts as a roll, but I feel like I am on a roll. I actually (actually!) have three other posts ready to go already (mostly). And now I am posting Footnotes to a month 1 day after it finished?! 

27 / 8 / 2015 - London - Hey, look at that, it took less than a year for me to think about writing something again. In reality it took far less time to think about writing something, but the actual process of writing something was much harder.

I think I have a few posts ready to go, and as always I have lots of notes that might turn into posts one day. Let's try this again. Fresh start. Etc.

25 / 11 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - It might be hard to believe, but I am actually getting closer to real time. We are making up ground on these posts.

Sort of. Go read about Spain. And sign up for updates. And comment. And stuff.

14 / 11 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - Posting at a rate like this and I might actually catch up to real time! Who would have ever guessed.

Anyway, posted about what happened in June, which was only... 5 months ago.

11 / 11 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - Another post! That's right, I am getting back in the swing of things, sort of. Maybe.

6 / 11 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - Ha! Finally I actually deliver when I say I am going to post something else! It might be short, but, that makes it easier to read? A day at Lord's!

3 / 11/ 2014 - 7 Dials, London - What, only a month between posts? Let's just say this is the downside of having a job... which eventually I might even get to on here...

Another post lined up for Friday.

3 / 10 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - I might be bad at frequent updates, but, at least they happen sometimes.


19 / 9 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - It's been a busy week and a bit with travel and guests to entertain, but I've got some new things lined up for next week hopefully, so more content soon! 

10 / 9 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - I don't think it is the first major tech press conference since I have been writing this, but I figured the Apple iPhone announcement was a good time to do some quick reaction posts. So, there you go, another post - that is two in one week!

8 / 9 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - You wouldn't believe it if I told you, but I basically have another post ready to go. Maybe later today, maybe tomorrow. Set your alarms!?

4 / 9 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - Hey, that was only about a week since the last post. This time it isn't even about travel stuff. Instead a few words about some recent Facebook changes. Not that I care all that much about changes to Facebook, just that it was something different to write about.

27 / 8 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - A new post again, just like I promised weeks ago. Come read about Boston!

26 / 8 / 2014 - 7 Dials, London - True story, I have totally written a new post and have it and images ready to go. I just need to get home and then I can actually make that a real thing.

11 / 08 / 2014 - Hammersmith, London - So, ah, it’s been a couple of weeks since I posted anything. I didn’t mean for it to happen, it just sort of did. I have a new job, and have had to move to a new place too (which wasn’t actually that bad because it was just walking a few blocks with a couple of bags). But, yeah, I got unfortunately busy with real life.
To make it all worse there wasn’t even that much happening that made for good stories for future posts (which at this rate I probably wouldn’t get around to talking about London until 2015).
But, thanks for hanging in there, I have at least written a few half posts so now I am settled I should be able to get back into at least weekly posting.
xoxo - GG (which actually works surprisingly well as a joke in this case)

24 / 7 / 2014 - Hammersmith, London - Another post! This one is a bit short, but should have a couple more coming soon. There might also be ads. But that's fine, I am just testing things out.

17 / 7 / 2014 - Clapham, London, England (as opposed to London, Ohio) - Look at that, another post only 7 days since the last one. I would like to think I can keep that pace up (if you would call that pace). Look forward to hearing about the East Coast, maybe some Broadway shows, and eventually, England/Europe.

10 / 7 / 2014 - Seville, Spain - Well, I was going to be writing more, but it is just so hot in Spain. I mean, am I meant to write, or am I meant to sleep and swim? It is questions like these that keep me up at night.

Anyway, a new post, this one is topical(ish). More travel and other things coming soon.

24 / 6 / 2014 - Cambridge, UK - So, still not living in London, but let's say I have been busying trying to, and that's why you had to wait so long for a post. Have fun with some Footnotes to Disney World!

13 / 6 / 2014 - Cambridge, UK - Another Disney World post! Only one more of those to go (I think), then you might also get my burger review of America too!

Keep checking back, and subscribe below to get new posts!

6 / 6 / 2014 - Cambridge, UK - It seems like just yesterday I said I would have a bunch of new posts ready to go soon. Turns out travelling keeps you pretty busy. Made it to the UK, and will have a bit of time to type stuff up in the next couple of days. In the mean time, enjoy a post from Disney world, that was only half a month ago.

13 / 5 / 2014 Walt Disney World - Turns out travelling means you are pretty busy doing stuff. I have noted written for several more posts (not just travel updates, some other stuff too), but just need some time to get it written down. In the mean time, some more from Vegas

8 / 5 / 2014 San Diego - Found some WiFi and don't have lots to do tonight so will get a few posts up, and maybe be able to set some to go up in the coming days too.

4 / 5 / 2014 Las Vegas - Struggling to get a SIM card or Internet connection (well, struggling to find time to fit that in), should sort it tomorrow. New exciting posts coming soon!

28 / 4 / 2014 - New posts, and a few other tweaks around the place, if only the details of me leaving the country were coming along as well.

24 / 4 / 2014 - Alright, the subscription box is back, and it works. Enter your email below if you want to get updates for new posts

23 / 4 / 2014 - A new post... but also I don't think the subscription item below is actually working on it. My tech support team is busy working on it. Unfortunately my tech support team is just me, and I don't know what I am doing. Plus, I have plans tonight.

I will let you know when/if it works out.

19 / 4 / 2014 - Still working with the layout and things a bit, but at least there are a couple of posts from this year now. Move to come soon.

17 / 4 / 2014 - New content (and layout, and design) coming very soon. Just needed to have the site launched and live for today. Check back often (weekly?) for updates!
