If gaming isn’t a part of your life, you’re doing it wrong.


  • Portland(ia)


    We were a tad busy and I didn’t get round to much writing in the last few days of the holiday. Portland I’m biased. I really enjoy the city of Portland.

    Leaving Whidbey

    Yes, this time I’m writing in Salem, Oregon after a fun filled week and a bit. We made the journey down from Whidbey Island last Thursday stopping at a few places along the way.

  • Day 2…Flooded

    So this morning didn’t exactly have the best start, after sleeping on the floor of the hall of the Jugendhaus (youth centre) and being woken constantly.
