Glastonbury Festival 2013: Getting there from abroad

Oh my God…and now how I can get to Glastonbury from abroad???

Glastonbury is a very small town in Somerset, 30 miles south of Bristol. I wouldn’t be really surprised to find it in the middle of nowhere!

It could be the perfect door to Cornwall, which is definitely a place in my bucket list. I’ve been to England so many times, I also lived there for a while visiting so many places.

Year after year I attempted to book a ticket for this event, checking the registration and the bank account couple of days before the sale, setting up fake IPs to be connected as a UK resident, being ready behind the mac when the sale opens, compulsively refreshing the pages for couple of hours. But in the end NOTHING. Even this year all the ticket was sold out in 1 hours and 40 and as usual when the line up was still unknown!

The biggest music festival (for sure in England, but for me ever!), the place to be, the dream of a whole life… i’m obviously talking about: Continue reading
