So tonight we have a Wee Do talk with Tom and Lara who wrote the blog World in Slow Motion, at the Carnaby store.  We still have a few free tickets left, so get in touch if you'd like to come along...should be a really great evening.

On a similar note...

A guy I know (Rowan) and his friend Billy are going to be travelling to Cairo using only overground travel.  The purpose of the trip- Rowan (a.k.a. Dizraeli) is an award winning rapper, who has been given an opportunity to perform Rebel Cell in Egypt.  He is an environmental activist and has vowed to never fly again....hence the trip...oh and his friend Billy is a documentary film maker who is going to accompany him.  They have built a website from which they will broadcast their journey as a daily blog, weekly video diary and finally documentary film.

;feature=player_embedded#[/youtube]

So I was asked to help them promote it- if you can help to finance their trip in any way (they are having a fundraiser in Dalston, London on Wednesday night), follow their travels and most importantly take inspiration from how they are choosing to explore other coutries.  They really want to illustrate how easy train travel is in the hopes to make a positive impact.

So check out their website http://www.unplaned.com/

Wee Do - World in Slow Motion

In June 2008 Lara and Tom left London to travel around the world without the use of one particular mode of transport: the aeroplane.  

 Over the following ten months they travelled 45,000 miles, visited nineteen countries and amassed a rather nice collection of hats.

 Come and join Lara and Tom as they recount their adventures of attempting to make the full circumnavigation of the globe without once leaving the surface of the Earth.

 (You never know you might even get to try on one of their hats).

 Read more about their trip at www.worldinslowmotion.com

The talk is taking place here at the Carnaby Street shop on the 23rd February at 7:30pm sharp, If you would like to come along then send us an email at carnabyst@howies.co.uk, call us on 0207 287 2345 or come and visit us in person, limited places are available so get in early with your request!

The usual selection of beverages will be available so come down, have a beer (or juice) and enjoy!

On my lunch breaks I really enjoy trawling through the internet to find what random events are going on in London. 

Well today I stumbled across this film festival Birds Eye View- celebrating women filmmakers.  It's on at the BFI Southbank from the 4th- 12th March. (tickets are on sale through their website)

They have some amazing UK film premieres, that even if you cannot make it to the event are well worth a look.  I particuarly want to watch Amreeka- the story of a mother and son immigrating to the US in a post 9/11 world.  This film was written and directed by Cherien Dabis, Palistinian herself but brought up in the States.  Should be really thought provoking!

Here's a trailer for the festival itself... ;feature=player_embedded[/youtube]
