"Richies Travelling Recollections" rryan1987's Profile

The Travel Bug has bitten again

After 18 months with only limited travel in Europe, I headed to Boston for this summer, working and having the banter. Best decesion I've made since going to South America.

Boston, particulary Allston, is a party town. Student s everywhere and a party at every corner of Allston. Being Irish helps here as the people here love us because their roots are Irish and we KNOW how to PARTAY!!

Tour de France

Being limited to travel in Europe was unfortunate but in this time I went to Le tour twice. Simply, go. Get yourself to a mountain top finish like Alpe d'Heux, camp on the side of the road and wait for the race and circus that comes with it. You will not be alone, as generally on Alpe d'Heux the crowds swells to the hundreds of thousands on the side of the road. Get yourself beside a camper van with a tv, so you can keep an eye on the race, and beside one of the big Dutch or Australian groups camping and partying on the side of the road. These guys know how to party too, with bbq's, up drinking till 7 in the morning, you cannot but have a mighty time if you get the right neighbours(basically make sure they're mad!)
