Once again I scour the globe and give you insights and travel advice for your own globe-trotting adventure.

but before I do some travel advice.

  • always travel alone it’s just more fun
  • never book ahead just find somewhere to stay on the night
  • always try the local food from street venders it’s more authentic
  • avoid the tourist runs and just wander down back alleys to see the real city

Now for this installments locations.



The party capital of the region full of amazing beaches quite locals and drunken tourists, some crazy festivals including a day of complete silence.



The Land of huge walls and a billion people soon to be the superpower this kinda communist country is home to brilliant food and the worlds tallest man, yet if you go there you will still feel tall.



The shrinking empire, once spanning a huge part of the globe. inventor of a huge number of sports they now lose continually at (soccer, rugby, tennis ect) Home to right manners the queen and fish and chips it’s the happiest place on earth.



All you need to know is in that song.

North America


Safest place on earth no drugs or gang warfare, Land of the mid day siesta and the laziest men alive, mixed with the hardest working to produce a land of leisure and fun.

South America


The bane of australian soccer world cup attempts the land that puts up with many a gay joke because of its name is a dive a place that should never be visited ever for any reason.

Well there you have it ^ more country’s you now know everything you need to know.


just when you thought they were dead back they come with a new album LIVING THINGS.

But first a look back at what made them a force in the first place the four albums that appeared before this one.

Starting with….

Hybrid Theroy,

the album that gave us one step closer and in the end linkin parks best adventure in to nu-metal was an album I listened to non stop for almost 2 years as a teenager.

then came….


a little softer and more emotional it non the less pretty much picked up where Hybrid Theroy stopped and kicked the rap metal and teen angst to it’s best.

Minutes to Midnight

the less said the better, an anti-war winge that has little direction and less class.

but it did lead to

A Thousand Suns

My favorite linkin park album it is simply amazing the use of electronic noise and pseudo intellectual lyrics with some quote from genuinely meaningful people somehow combines to be brilliant.

so this brings us to Living Things, what is my opinion I hear you scream ( or prehaps that’s the voices in my head) well I’m only half way through but the experimental feel of a thousand suns has faded but can still be felt a little and the teen angst has come back along with some heavier guitars, so really this is the album you would expect Minutes to midnight to be had you heard all meteora and knowing it would become a thousand suns, unfortunately it comes after a thousands suns, which lowers my hopes of a return to the experimental electro style they were I thought embracing. and it goes back to being 35 mins long.
