Cafe Culture

Cafe Culture

This weekend Becky was rather keen to

a) Prove the all round usefulness of the best laptop bag in the world everTM

b) Drink coffee, surf the net wirelessly using her laptop in a coffee shop.

We could have gone to Seattle, we could have gone to London but I didn't have my passport on me and London is a very long way to go for a cup of coffee. The bright lights of Kings Lynn it was. After a bracing walk past the thronging crowds who were thrilling at the opening of the new Woolworth's we made our way to the coffee shop.

While I got the coffees Becky grabbed the seats and must have got her laptop out in seconds flat because as I when I got back she was intently staring at the screen. Unfortunately though this is Kings Lynn and free Wi-Fi has not hit this bit of the Fens, so experiencing the full cafe culture vibe will have to wait for another day.

It won't be where I live though because the idea of decent coffee hasn't even hit my bit of the Fens.

  3. I wish the airport I work at would install FREE wireless internet. That way I could get around that pesky firewall that prevents me from playing java games at work by bringing in my laptop!

  7. I find driving round any housing estate while scanning for unsecured connections does it for me. Problem then is getting the costa coffee delivered. :(

    [meander]Mind you it won't be long before those Pizza Delivery mopeds will come equipped with satnav -perhaps just have to settle for pizza.[/meander]
