Cazza's Worldly Adventures

After Caroline appeared on the What's New Show we chatted about her tour of the world and I asked if she was ok with me doing a blog so that you the Black Diamond FM listeners can follow Caroline's adventures as she travels to Russia, China, NewZealand, Australia and many other places over the next few months.
Caroline is going to try and keep me as updated as she can during her travels however due to internet connections etc it may not be possible sometimes to connect however here is the first instalment of Cazza's Worldly Adventures.

May 1st: "Last night in Edinburgh - train to London tomorrow. Woohoo!"

May 2nd: "Cracking night tonight with friends in Clapham! Great thai food and a few beers in Laandaan! Tomorrow-St Petersburg!"

May 3rd: "We have arrived in St Petersburg! Sun is scorching here. After a scary taxi journey with a really fast driver (I almost threw up), we held our ground when he tried to rip us off. Great start! I've calmed down now, time to explore!!"

May 5th: So, my update for tomorrow's show! I am in St Petersburg! Have already had a row with a taxi driver trying to royally rip us off, but Gilmour stood her ground! Nae messin'. Hard as. Architecture is amazing, lots of museums, cathedrals etc. however a lot of the food contains mushrooms. Now, I can't stand mushrooms. The devil's spawn. Even when I ask for no mushrooms, I get mushrooms. So i find myself spending a lot of time picking them out of my meals. And everybody smokes here-it's shocking!! Wheeze wheeze cough cough! So I'm avoiding bars and pubs-hence the picture of the cheap Russian
Beer I bought at the supermarket today. Tastes ok-no worse than tennants! Having a cracking time though! Next stop-Moscow!!! See ya!

May 8th "Heading out to visit The Hermitage Museum today. Sun is shining here too. Our next destination is Moscow, scheduled for Sunday via the Trans Mongolian Railway."

"Just had traditional Russian food and a fairly brutal lager to go with it. Fit to burst now but Russian hospitality was live and kicking in a wonderful restaurant called Levin. Don't think we'll eat tomorrow!"

May 9th: "Victory day fireworks. Lucky to be in St Petersburg on this day."

May 10th: Fabby Russian meal tonight in s lively restaurant with our tour group for the Trans Mongolian railway. We set off for Moscow tomorrow, then head out to Mongolia and China. I have been warned there is not a lot of social media in China, so you may not hear from us for around 5 weeks after next week!

May 12th:We are in Moscow! Overnight train from St Petersburg to Moscow was amazing. Free upgrade to the nice cabins and side splitting laughs with 2 other Scots lassies. Good times! Moscow! St Basil's Cathedral. Scorcher of a day. Off to Mongolia tomorrow."

Hopefully I will hear from Cazza before Monday 20th's show I will keep you up to date on Caroline's adventures.
