As if you don’t already have enough to keep you occupied during your precious online time during the week, I’m about to introduce you (well my Canadian mates anyway), to a London street magazine called TNT Magazine.
Considered the closest thing to the Bible by THOUSANDS of London-based Aussies, Kiwis and South Africans, TNT Magazine is a weekly, independent travellers magazine filled with travel stories and features as well as news from home (AUS, NZ, SA) entertainment guides, and helpful information on local transport, housing and jobs.
Trust me when I say I used to read this thing cover to cover every week on the underground between Fulham and Temple on my daily work commute.
That was over 5 years ago now, but I still read the publication cover to cover on a weekly basis thanks to a nifty flash-based reader that the TNT website has released. The reader application allows you to effortlessly move throughout the pages of the magazine with ease and switching to archived editions is just as easy. You can zoom in on particular articles to help with readability, send individual pages to friends via email and even download entire PDF editions for offline browsing (on your iTouch for example).
It’s brilliant! Just now I sent an interview with Flight of the Conchords maestro, Bret Mckenzie, to a couple of friends. The TNT Magazine website isn’t just about the magazine, however. The site also has a great selection of tips and information helpful for getting those setting themselves up in London. You know, stuff like housing, visas, shipping, taxation, banking, shopping, cheap international phone calls etc. Mel, if you read this, it’s an ideal resource for your move later in the year!
Now that I have this Blog entry out of the way, I’m going to go back and read about “budget friendly fun on the French Riviera”. Sweet!
