As me and a friend were in Portsmouth at the time for a couple of days, we decided to see how much the Ferry was over to the Isle of Wight. We were foot passengers and I hadn’t been on a ferry in a while so I was quite excited about the idea. It doesn’t […]

After a hectic night in Brighton me and my friend got the train down to Portsmouth, a place I have not been to since I was a child of around ten. All I remember of that first trip was of the famous HMS Victory, a ship of such legendary status that it has not been […]

Where I live it’s quiet and hasn’t much interesting to do although there is some climbing centre that is pretty much built and up and ready to go.
