Henfest 2013

Coming to you live from henfest 2013 in Bournemouth,  a small backyard festival done by a friend of a friend to raise money for cystic fibrosis.  The journey down here was an absolute nightmare, with multiple large traffic jams along the way, the trip supposedly takes about 2.5 hours of the roads are clear. . .  It took me 4 hours 20 mins . At one point in the journey i realised i was going the wrong way because of a road so incredibly jammed that i couldnt even access the slip road by the time i realised it was my turning, my satnav kept telling me to do a u turn and go by the  m25 but i didn’t really feel like being trapped in non moving traffic for hours on end, so o decided to forge my own path down south by setting my map to overhead mode and literally just travelling west on back roads until the satnav eventually stated directing me to somewhere that wasn’t the m25, i ended up on a tiny single road forest track in the middle of goddamn nowhere and almost getting completely stuck due to oncoming traffic (that’s how narrow that road was).

On another occasion my friend called me and i very almost missed my turning onto the slip road off, i hung up and literally made a hard left turn across striped lines to get onto the slip. Fucking nightmare.

We played some cards against humanity last night and watched some awful movies, one with nick cage and the other with the rock (‘faster’).  And then this morning 2 briefly went out to the beach before coming to the festival.

Apologies for spelling,  typed this whole post on phone lol.

edit. some pictures.
