Davedon 2009

So, last weekend was Davedon in London. Dave owns Blogography, the first blog I really got into reading about four years ago. We had planned to meetup whilst I was touring the States last year but it didn’t work out. Dave was going to be in London for a few days so arranged a little meetup. I booked flights over and myself and Paul made the trip last Friday. Now I’ve been in London twice already but I’ve never done the tourist thing. Last weekend was about fixing that. Over the few days we visited Tower Bridge, the Churchill Museum & Cabinet War Rooms, Westminster, The London Eye and the Tower of London.

On Saturday night (after Ireland’s phenomenal rugby win), we headed out to the King’s Road in Chelsea to meet Dave and the crew (Penelope, Bec, Perry, other Dave and The Dutch Bitch). They’d been at the place since 5.30 so I kinda felt bad turning up late. In hindsight I would have travelled out much earlier and watched the game there. Alas, I gave Dave his Patrick’s Day hat and we shared a few beers:

    It was great to meet you! I might travel to Dublin this year, so maybe I’ll give you a shout when I do.
