Welcome to my world! My name's Nik, and I'm a British expatriate who has been living in Paris, France for the last five years. Even though I never planned to stay in Paris for very long, now I'm here I've no plans to leave soon - the beauty of Paris has never worn off, and so far it's been a five year long vacation! Enjoy my ramblings...

I wouldn't survive Borneo

There's a nice box of cold beers in my fridge - almost empty since it's almost a day old now. I was trying to get a beer out from the back of the box, but couldn't get it out through the hole.

After struggling several times I was suddenly reminded of the fact that Borneo hunters trap monkeys by putting food in a box with a hole smaller than the food, and the monkeys get caught because they refuse to let go of the food.
