Week 30: Real Tennis

Aside from Easter Monday, this was a pretty ordinary and uneventful week. Each day would involve riding into the department, working, having lunch, working some more, going home for dinner and relaxing through the evening. That isn’t to say nothing interesting happened.

Week 29: East End Musicals and Medieval Jousting

The week began with what is now a familiar practice; riding my bikes to the mechanic to have a broken spoke replaced.

Bulgaria Trip Day 3: Horseback Riding in Plovdiv

The alarms were set for 5:30 AM, and it was that we grumpily got up and threw all our clothes on. We left the hostel only twenty minutes later for a dark walk through the early morning streets of Sofia to the Central Railway Station. Today, we would be heading on a day trip to… Continue reading Bulgaria Trip Day 3: Horseback Riding in Plovdiv
