Hello people,

I have a weird tradition of turning my travel stories into books once a year.
This year my lazy ass hasn't finished the paperback version of it but for those of you that would like to read my adventures around Europe, I attached a PDF to this thread.
(p.s: the whole thing is free because sharing is caring)

Also: feel free to tell me what you think I need opinions haha :)

Thank u for your attention.

Nice to read about traveling in Germany.

Funny thing is, being from Germany I never really traveled here. Most time I spend in UK, some time in Belgium and Netherlands. Went to Basel once for two weeks, was cool. :)

I really love this! I'm headed out to Belgium/France/Netherlands in April and i'm super excited. If you have any recommendations of places to go/see/stay or people to hang out, I'd love that.

In belgium there's an amazing place in Bruxelles called Barlok, it's a squatted commercial dock by the river and they often have gigs and workshops :) Otherwise Liège is also really cool.
In France there's many many many places and possibilities, it just depends on what you're looking for. My personal favorite is the squatted caves in the south, unfortunately i can't remember the name of the city. But i will update if i remember! :) And for the Netherlands, you need to go to BikeWars, it's a squat in Utrecht. Thats pretty much all i can say in terms of places haha other than that keep your eyes and your interests open, there's always a lot to see everywhere ;)

To add to what @almostvicious said:

Have been in Antwerp and it was really nice. There was a squat a bit outside of the city, apparently a residential area built for Army employees, was about to be demolished. I don't think it's there anymore, but there should be other squats around.

Be careful in Amsterdam. Got a fine for sleeping rough there and police is quite strict when it comes to street drinking (at least at daytime) and smoking weed (despite you can legally buy it there in coffee shops).

You might find good concerts on villemorte.fr , this is Lyon agenda, then St Etienne is a good place ~>lagueulenoire.org ; and if you are a countryside wirdoe go to ambert (63 dpt) and look for the place called "l'elegante", they organize good events and a cantine on Thursdays lunch, at Cunlhat (63dpt too), they have a cantine on Wednesdays at the octopus bar. There u ask, people will find you a place to stay.

Goal
$100.00

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $50.00 of $50.00 - reached!
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $60.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $60.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $60.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.

It takes forever to do profiles via smartphone.. I'll fill this out on a laptop later.. me and my wife, Straps, recently moved from NC to central Ohio and are looking for like minded folks. Oldschool punk and metal etc is our tastes but not limited to. She does Vocals as well as I.. I also play bass. And am currently working on a demo. Think serial killer true crime punk.. not 'horror punk'.. true horror, yes.
