Thinking abroad and sunset

Apologies for leaving my blog as a desolate wilderness of abandonment for the last month! I have not been up to much since my last post other then playing friends at Scrabble and Chess on Facebook, taking photo's of the 'Hull Hornets' American football team for their website, attending a few nights out and hitting the gym everyday after work, and worrying a little bit about 'Hull City's position in the Premiership.

I have been thinking more and more about going abroad, and since a friend of mine has been posting fantastic pictures of his wonderful adventures backpacking around the far east on Facebook, I have been getting insanely envious and I am making going abroad for the first time, my number one priority. I have the remaining amount to pay for my Hull City season ticket next payday, making me skint next month, but the payday after that I will be applying for my passport and saving for three or four days in Bruges. A town I have wanted to visit since watching the movie 'In Bruges' a film I like very much. I hope this will be the first of many little adventures abroad.

Speaking of films, I went to see Star Trek at the cinema last Monday, very enjoyable and really would recommend it!

I am making good progress at the gym, I have gone from having skinny weak arms, man boobs and a beer belly, to having a flat stomach and actual muscles. Last Monday I started a diet specifically for building muscle and losing fat and in just one week I have lost 1 kilogram in weight. But there is still much to be done...more muscles and an 8 pack on my stomach before I will be happy.

I have a long weekend in Whitby booked with friends in about a month which I am looking forward to, and tonight I am going to a local nightclub to watch my friends band 'The Strands' play a gig! So I'll leave it at that for now, and just share these sunset pictures I took from the landing window a few nights ago!

Kev, Bruge is hardly abroad, went there 20 odd years ago en route to Amsterdam, a shite hole as Gene Hunt would say:)You'll have a lot more fun in Eire or Greece, even France (great victuals)or if you fancy some proper travelling go to NZ,or Canada.

My late father wanted us to emigrate to Rhodesia in the 60's. Glad we didn't. It became Zimbabwe in short order, and frankly Mugabe isn't my favourite head of state.

i hope you did go abroad then you can write about it on your blog!

I've never been abroad either--not even across the border to Canada.

Nice photos. It's been grey and wet and cold here, but at least the sun is shining somewhere.

Congrats on the new body! I've been on a diet for three months now and so far I've lost a total of ... 6 ounces! :-P

I wanted to comment on your City post, but I can't! I've just got back from the Dales, were no-one seems interested in football at all. Still, great news for City.
