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 : Istanbul

Today Charlie went with me on a city tour of Istanbul, Turkey. We are at the start of a trip to Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan but my outbound flight includes a long layover in Istanbul and so I took advantage of the Turkish Airlines offer of a free city tour.

This offer was pretty good, as it includes the use of a tour bus and guide plus entry fees to all of the sights that you see. It even includes a minimum of two meals depending on the time of your tour and how long your layover it.

After breakfast we were taken to the centre of the city and shown the main sights including various monuments, the Blue Mosque, the Topkapi Palace, and a few other places before being given a free lunch. Overall I think it was a good overview of the city, although there is far more to see there. One thing I did enjoy seeing was a good view of the Bosphorus from the Topkapi Palace, and I took a photo of Charlie there too.

Next stop Tashkent, Uzbekistan!
