We spent a December evening with some of the old (1990s) Woodford/Loughton/Chingford bunch, at SushiSamba. Same bunch that went to Hereford.

A few of us met up at Spivs, including Jim & Ian.
Nice night out with the chaps from Loughton (Adam Drake), Buckhurst Hill (Steve Andrews), Theydon (Andy Matthews), and those who used to be in Woodford (Jim, Ian and I).
Had a great night at Dreambags and in Hoxton. Was planning to meet with Andy Matthews too, but he got stuck at work.

Yesterday we all went to Jenny Guest’s wake. Everyone was there, and after the service we all went out to remember her.
Great, 5 week trip to the USA with Jim & Ian. We saw Disney, Crazy Golf, New Orleans, Everglades, San Fran, and A LOT of THE PIG & WHISTLE. We were The Three Amigos (in cutoff jeans). Thanks to Russ, his land lady, the Guests, the Magnuses.

We visited.m … Continue reading InterRailing with Jim – Summer in Germany & France
