On The Geordie Shore...

I drove to Newcastle on the weekend, which probably doesn't mean too much if you don't know that I live in Aberdeen.

Admittedly, the 231 miles (according to Google Maps) to the one Upon Tyne, in England, is not quite as impressive as the 10,366 miles to the one in New South Wales would have been, but it would have been unlikely that I would have made it in to work on Monday had I driven there.

It was good to get away for the day, and almost get lost in a city I had never been, in amongst people I could barely understand.

Sometimes it is good to be an insignificant part of the picture rather than the one holding the paintbrush.
