Yes it’s true, all those news reports, front page headlines and celebrity blog entries are correct I have left the United Kingdom. At this current moment I’m sat in a hotel munching Pringles listening to my iTunes and being an hour in-front. It’s been a pretty crazy week, I had a pretty heavy leaving party consuming a fair sum of alcohol whilst feeling the onset of a pretty heavy cold. By the time I touched down in Germany I was a wreck dripping litres of nasal mucus (snot) and had less colour in my face than a film from the 1920s. Getting from the plane,with a head that felt a rave was going on inside, and collecting baggage was a doddle.

So after a humiliating 30 minutes dancing/signing/waving/yelling/pointing etc.. trying to find out where the taxi stands where, we found the taxi driver with my name on his card.

It took 10 minutes to get to Darmstadt and the hotel, which is the Prinz Heinrich and looks like this. After checking in, my new manager came and picked me up drove me to my new place of work, and them more importantly to a place called the ratskeller, which is a brewery, hotel and pub/bar. Where we then proceeded to get quite tipsy on local ales, good times!

Quite settled in over in DE at the moment, chilling in my hotel room at the moment sorting through documents and random files that are littering my laptop. Decided it might be a good idea to clean my gmail out as well, when I spotted a truly awful scam. It’s been done a million times, i’ve had the Lord BindiBandji from Nigeria with his millions in gold bullion ready to ship me a fortune.. all he needs are my credit card details. However i’ve never had a crapy fraudulent email from the UK.Read More
