My flight to Manchester (via Guangzhou and London) leaves tomorrow!!!
Follow me on Twitter (@nicole_thorburn) for regular updates. My Grahamstown Gazette column will continue in print as normal in my absence, and will hopefully be available digitally by the time I get back. My Facebook pages will also continue as normal, more or less - thank goodness for the Facebook Pages app!
I'll be in Manchester for two weeks, before joining TopDeck's Celtic Trails tour in Belfast. I'll then stay in London until mid-July, when I head to continental Europe on TopDeck's European Getaway. I'll be back in the UK in August and heading to Scotland for the Edinburgh Fringe. Finally, I'm volunteering as a steward at Welcome to the Asylum, Europe's largest Steampunk festival, and spending a few weeks shadowing and volunteering at Lincoln Castle. In mid-September my flight leaves Manchester via Amsterdam to Guangzhou, where I'm going on a short tour before heading home.
