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 : Phuket, Thailand

Charlie has enjoyed his time in Thailand. Phuket is not the sort of place that has ever interested me, as most people come here for the nightlife and the sterile beaches, but I did my best to get away from these and see some of the local culture.

Before travelling to the Myanmar border we stayed for two nights in Karon, the second biggest nightlife town on the island, and while I was here I did go to the beach for a little while but I also explored the local area, ate some good food, saw some temples and visited the Big Buddha statue which is located on a hill overlooking Karon.

Then after returning to Phuket I stayed in Phuket Town, the administrative centre of the island, to get away from the beaches and experience some Thai culture. While in Phuket town I explored the local area, visited some parks, visited a few museums and enjoyed some lovely (and cheap) meals. There were some tourists around, as this is a stop off for people visiting the nearby islands, but overall I enjoyed my time in the town a lot more than I enjoyed my time in Karon.

We are now at the Island Pacific Hotel in Hong Kong, half way through my journey back to The UK. Tomorrow we will have a look around the city and hopefully take some nice photos of Charlie, as long as this fog disappears.
