to work or not to work

“Hello all Here’s the report from London. Myth number 1: It’s easy to get a job in London Not true. I think that it would be easy to get a job if you were in administration or waitressing, but getting a professional job really takes some time. First you apply for the position. Then about a week later (if you’re lucky) the agency will ring you back and offer you a completely different job from the one you applied for that you are either too qualified for or not qualified for at all....

The difference between biscuits

“Guten morgan (lucky it’s morning because I have no idea how to say good afternoon in German!) We’re in Munich in Germany.

A lot has happened since the last email, we’ve been to 3 different countries and are still having a ball....

Florence and Nice

“Bonjour I have to say that. We’re in France. After spending a few very rainy days in the Tuscany region of Italy we arrived in Nice, France, last night. Not surprisingly, it’s, um, nice. Anyway more about that later. This is what we’ve been up to since we left Venice. Caught the bus to Florence in Italy and arrived at around lunch time. The area is really nice, the countryside is green and lush and it is really very nice after the bare Greek landscapes....

"Blue roofs, and more about those floating rats"

“Hello from beautiful Santorini in the Greek Islands! Sorry I didn’t get to finish the last email. Chances are it will happen again! We have some photos uploaded to the site now. We haven’t seen most of them yet, so I have no idea what is there! Should be interesting. http://www.sytone.net By the way, we have decided to photograph all the McDonald’s shops that we see and have a Maccas gallery on the site....

Meat sandwiches, floating rats and the REAL Olympic city

Hello everyone, We thought it was about time that we wrote to you all. We’ve been so busy and having a lot of fun, and the only reason that we have enough time today is that we are stuck in Athens because the ferries are stiking and we can’t get to Santorini (we were supposed to leave last night). more about that later, here’s the adventure so far. If you see that anyone is missing from the email list, please forward this on....
