I knew when I came to Sweden, that I would have to go back to the UK at the end of my lease. I didn't want to extend it, I couldn't be stuffed waiting for that stupid Personal Number, I basically put Sweden in the TOO HARD basket and I know I'll come back to as the years go by and I get tired of travel
I belive that it does take years to grow some balls and move over to a country. I visited the UK 3 times in 24 months (June 2011-June 2013) and at June 2013 I wasn't fucking read to live in the UK. I went back to Australia to work on my waiter career, fix up my sexual problems (as I had aniexty problems during sex that leads to Erectile dysfunction & Delayed Ejaculation).
I came to the UK in July 2015 to rent a room in Birmingham, get an NI number, get an NHS number get a jobs. I did get all my numbers and stuff but I was too home sick with the women I had gotten with in Sydney, I was worried about my Mums heart operation and I was fucking sick of waiting for numbers and dealing with pricks in Birmingham who hated cooking all these dishes
The 2nd time I moved to the UK I was there for 2 months, I gained no job, spent no time dealing with the NHS and I just basically lazed around my cousins homes in Guernsey, Scotland and Yorkshire waiting for King Diamond
The 3rd time I moved to the UK I stayed inside the country for 11 months, I lived in Birmingham, I saw the NHS doctors, I got free medicines, I worked I paid taxes and I moved to London.
So this is not a 4th move to the UK. This is where I go back to work, I start living in houses ,start paying rent, stop sleeping with Pornstars!
Since I am nearly done with Europe It means I only go outside of the UK every 3 months to tame a new land!
I will return to Sweden:
Once I reach my 100th nation
Once I go from Cairo to Cape Town
Once I get my feet in South and Central America
Once I visit all of these countries I just listed
Once I have enough money
It would be okay if I just had enough money for a year and went back over to Sweden. But then again my location would only give me holidays to Russia and that means more time spent on the Trans Siberian Railway
In the last 11 days since I left Sweden I did what would have to be my 8 epic overland journey in Europe.
I flew into Iasi Romania from a delayed flight on the 1st August. I hoping I get big compensation for this 5 hour delay
After a morning looking around Jewish sights of Iasi and being amazed at the Palace of Culture I spent 40 Lei and got a bus over to Chisinau Moldova.
I spent a total of 48 hours in Moldova. I didn't go anywhere else in the capital. I was too worried about visiting Transnistria and not getting an exit stamp before going to Ukraine or having to change Moldovan Lei into their worthless Ruble you can only spend in their unrecognised state.
Leaving gare Nori Chisinau I travelled for 12 hours across the Moldovan Ukrainian border. When I was stamped out of Moldova my passport said 4th August, but when I was stamped in Ukraine it said 3rd August! These 2 countries share a land border and the same Time Zone.
Its not like lets say you leave France on 23.30 on Wednesday 1st March. Your passport is stamped that date, but when you cross to England their stamp will say 1st March
I spent a weekend in the Ukrainian Capital. There was so much to see in Kiev but the one thing that bugged me was trying to find my hostel when my Camera, Laptop and phone battery were dying.
I was supposed to stay here for 3 nights but due to the lack of free seats going to the Ukraine/Slovakia border, I got the last available bed on this train. I went from Kiev to Uzhhorod on a train journey that was 16 hours long and sucked balls!
This Ukraine Train didn't have a resturant car. This would be like getting on board the Tran Siberian and the only times you can get food is when the train stop for 5-25 minutes at each town in Russia.
There was suposed to be a BOILER with hot water, but I didn't find it!
By getting off the train at Uzhorod in Ukraine, I saved allot of Money. I had a look around this quiet town before paying 5 Euros and getting a bus to Kosice in Slovakia
I had always wanted to cross the border between Ukraine and Slovakia as I have already met with Hungarian Schengen guards and Romanian and Bulgarian guards. The Slovakia lady guard loved seeing this metalhead and his medical braceltte
In Kosice I booked a train to visit the town of Čachtice as it was recommended by my friend Duke Fang from Stuka Squadron.
The night train left at midnight and it would cost £15 to get to this tiny town,
I got to this town at 6am in the morning and started walking to the castle. The castle was opened at 10am, but the staff were so unorganised. I didn't want to pay them any money so I took some photos and left.
For a 5 Euros I got a train to the Slovakian capital Bratislava. I came here in 2013 to mark Slovakia as my 27th nations, but I saw jack all and I saw now Slovak flags flying. This time I was here to see some sights and write about them.
I was so disgusted having to pay 15 Euros a night to stay at this hostel. I'd just been spending £5 a night in Moldova and Ukraine. Hell my Hostel in London was like 6-9 quid a night!
The next morning I got a £25 bus to Berlin that went through Czech republic and Germany. I was going to spend maybe a day in Germany to go visit Max Born grave somewhere in Göttingen or I could have gone to Hamburg to see Hirax live.
I really can't stand going to Germany and paying big bucks for those ICE trains. Seriously I spent like 70 Euros in 2012 to go from Frankfurt to Hamburg. The only cheap way to travel in Germany is FLixbux and that's basically how I've travelled in Central and Western Europe!
In Eastern Europe in the Baltics, I love LUX BUS!
In Berlin I got off the coach at the wrong stop and my bus to Amsterdam was going to leave at midnight. So I spent 3.90 on ticket abc and got out to the bus station on time.
I could have blown about £44 quid to get to London from Amsterdam. But with bus fares between Amsterdam and Lille go for £13 I though, fuck yeah lets go back to Lille.
I have already been to Lille back in December 2016 to find my Great Uncle William name on the war memorial.
It was going to cost at least 20 Euros to get out to Calais and £30 to cross the seas. Plus I'd have to make my way back to London from Dover!
I spent £18 for a night in a really cool clean hostel in Lille. I left the hostel at 11am to go to Gare Lille and wait for my bus back to London Victoria. This bus fare was £22 pounds. So much less than what I could have paid to leave for London last night
As I got back to London I regained my identity after 2 months away. I never meant to be away from London for this long, but I had so much stuff to chase in Europe and so much things to chase up in the UK
I could have gone to Cyprus from Iasi, I could have flown back to the UK from Ukraine, I could have walked from Bratislava to Vienna, I could have done a funny ONJ inspired photo at Max Born grave, I could have seen Hirax, I could have toured Berlin, I could have paid for sex in Amsterdam...
But all those things cost Money and being out of work for 2 month I don't really want to spend money on those things. I mean yes maybe Hirax can come to the UK or I could fly to a town in Germany and get a bus to where Max Born is buried or I could take a 3 day break from London and fly to Bratslavia and walk across to Vienna.
So as I check back into Birmingham for a stay for few days I am knowing that my London life resume soon, I am going back to work after 2 months in exile.
For the record books I am due in Cyprus, Jordan and Egypt in November. I won't be able to go overland to South Africa, but at least I'll get to see allot of stuff in Egypt and use up some more pages in my UK passport.
I will stay in the UK until sometime in 2019. If I am ever offered a job in Scandinavia to live and work over there, I won't take it unless I am financial secure. its very risky for someone to leave home with little money, move to another country and expect a windfall of cash.
