It's been quite a while since we've posted anything on the blog but we really didn't do much in the way of travelling recently since we were both busy either working or trying to find a job.

Anyway, this is a blog post about our very fun trip to Bristol. We booked a return ticket to Bristol on our favourite way to travel...the Mega Bus! Mega indeed. We had to get to Birmingham city centre at 8:10am to catch our Mega Bus and we nearly missed it since for some reason we didn't bother to check the city bus schedule.

We know we have been absent for a few weeks on the blog. We have been job hunting and trying to settle into our lives here in England. We have not done a lot of exploring, but here is an update.

Since we got the internet we have been booking an amazing trip for the summer... stay tuned.
