It’s been a relatively good start to 2015. At least in terms of my flying miles reduction. Or flying kilometres since using miles is silly. What I’ve done over the past few months is data mine my travel history. Sounds like I’ve got too much time on my hands doesn’t it? But the result is really … More Personal data mining: Air miles and non-air miles
Today should have been the 115th flight I’ve ever taken. The plane never took off on it’s scheduled Oslo to Trondheim route. Norwegian Air Norway has been having some difficulties with their domestic pilots (who earn a measly 150000USD each year).

This has consequently led me to taking the slower … More Taking the railway via Røros – an error in planning

Admittedly the distance isn’t incredibly long within Norway, so such journeys are not so exceptional as England to Norway without flying. Christmas Travels 2014 My starting point this time around is Trondheim and I’m heading … More Train Game v2.0
Hey there avid reader! Long time no see! (I mean, sorry Mum for not posting in the last 11 months…) I thought to revisit the issue of costs of my Christmas train game as I am again taking the slow way ‘home’ for Christmas this year (maybe it’s a tradition!). Although Christmas 2015 will probably … More A Christmas Tradition – Slow Travel!
