One of the proudest moments of my life

A photo of well aged people

Reading Time: < 1 minute Here you see my death metal band, Demilich, in Baltimore. On left of me you see Tom. Tom likes our band, and came to see our gig there. Tom is a musician, too. He’s a founder and the bassist of this little rock group called Aerosmith. The last 12 months have been so, so strange …

Naturally they didn’t have any “interrail seats” available, but I couldn’t care less about the money as I was just willing to get to London and closer to getting home.

I arrived very early in the morning, and finding the hostel I had booked was very hard due to the sparse usage of street signs. Also, what you see on the map is not …
