Holiday of hard knocks

EVEN after jetting off to the other side of the globe, former Chronicle journalist Kristy Martin still hasn't been able to keep away from the head-lines.

Since the 26-year-old set off on a European adventure earlier this year she has found herself in various spots of bother.

Most recently she was on board a train which derailed in Portugal.

The train was travelling at speeds of more than 200km when it hit a cow on the tracks and partially derailed.

All passengers, including Kristy, were unharmed but it certainly gave her much to tell friends and relatives about on her Facebook page.

A couple of weeks ago Kristy got into some more serious trouble when she was robbed in Portugal.

The thief took off with all her worldly possessions including her passport.

While she lived to tell the tale and is trying to stay positive, she lost her camera and all the memories it had stored in it.

She has arrived in London where she hopes to find work and stay out of trouble.
