This seemed the most appropriate section to post this in, but if it’s not, I apologize.
The rugged Mr. Roostwick, of Vancouver, BC, is going to be in the UK for the second half of August! After visiting family on the west coast for a few days, I will be travelling around, & likely staying in London for most of the rest of my trip. I was but a wee tot when last I set foot in beloved England, so this is a great opportunity to rove about the countryside like a brigand: storming landmarks, pillaging charity shops, & stopping by a few pubs while I’m at it (even brigands need a break now and then!). Oh, and train rides. Many, many train rides…*sighs wistfully*.
I want to meet you! Curious about the Steampunk scene in Canada? I’d love to chat, or just hang out. Feel like being a tourist in your own country for a day? I’m flush with wanderlust, & would love to have someone to wander with! Let’s go antique or clothes shopping, take in a play or film, go to museums, find great photo spots, feast on good food & drink, & have some fantastic stories to tell!
I’ve been on the forum a while, and I’ve only recently started posting, but I would love the opportunity to get to know a few of you while I’m in the UK. Some more on me in my intro post: http://brassgoggles.co.uk/forum/index.php/topic,24351.1675.html
I’m generally an adventurous, friendly, conscientious, quirky, earnest, respectful, playful & stubborn fellow, who gets along with most everyone.
I’ll be “in town” during the second half of the month, & I’ll be attending the Abney Park concert on the 23rd, if anyone is still looking for someone to go with. I’m also seeking accommodation during that time (even a couch would be welcome!), & can provide some compensation if necessary, or chop firewood/clean/cook/write poetry illustrating just how kind/talented/good looking you are.
If you’ve got any concerns, or just want to get to know me better ahead of time, I’m more than willing to chat over Facebook, Skype, phone, or forum PM.
UK Steampunks, a rogue Canuck will soon be amongst you…and I aim to misbehave. Who’s with me?!
