Looking for tickets or info for the Get Happy Tour 2018 featuring Bowling for Soup, Army of Freshmen and The Aquabats?

This domain name was used for the Get Happy Tour back in its original run around 10 years ago, when I used to do work for BFS and AOF. However, for the past 5 years it has been used for my travel blog as I never thought we would have another Get Happy Tour and I didn't want it to go to waste.

But as a favour to two bands who have done a lot for me over the years, and so you don't miss out, ticket info is:
O2 Presale: 10am on 25 September
General Onsale: 10am on 27 September.

Tickets available from ticketmaster.co.uk and bowlingforsoup.com

Charlie : Myanmar (aka Burma)

Charlie has spent the past week with me on a sailing trip through southern Myanmar (also known as Burma) and it has been really nice. I usually like to take trips which are full of activities, or at least which don’t have a large proportion scheduled for relaxation time, so this was a welcome change.

The Myeik (Mergui) archipelago was only opened up to foreign vessels this year and the ship that we took, owned and operated by Intrepid, is the only foreign registered vessel doing sailing trips around the area. During the trip we did see some fishing vessels, some traditional canoes in the sea gypsy village we visited, and one large foreign yacht at a resort we visited but other than that we didn’t see any other boats after entering the area. In fact, other than on the resort and visiting the sea gypsy village we didn’t see any other people for the whole time and were almost completely off the grid which was nice.

The area is just stunning, as you can see. Charlie stayed on the boat so that he wouldn’t get lost at sea, except for one evening on an island when we enjoyed a BBQ, but this didn’t spoil his experience as you can see from the photos.

We are back in Thailand now and will be spending a couple more nights here before returning to The UK via Hong Kong.
