The world on in-line skates
See the world on skates.
Hey, did you know the world’s quite big outside?
Did you know that other skaters live there too?
Did you even know that it’s possible to go and see the rest of the world on a big boat and if you take your skates you can meet all the other skating people and see the things that they see when they are skating?
Cool huh? What will they think of next?
In this section you can read articles and see all the nice pictures from all the skaters from across the seas. We hope they will inspire you to experience towns and cities on your skates. What better way to discover the landmarks and people of the world with skates on your feet, a backpack on your back a map in your hand and a big smile on your face? Oh look is that the Eiffel Tower all lit up on your left, oh wait look, there’s the Sagrada Familia and wait I think that’s the Chrysler building over there. Better stop at the next eetcafe for a glass of Heineken and get our bearings.
Have you traveled with your skates and want to tell of your adventures? Perhaps you live somewhere really cool and think us Londoners should really know all about you and your home-town. Please write for us. We want to hear more about the big world yonder.
