Edinburgh

This Monday I had to visit a supplier in Livingston, Scotland for work so I thought I’d take the opportunity to fly up Sunday morning and do a spot of sight seeing in Edinburgh. This is actually my second visit to this part of the world but I don’t think I blogged about it as […]

Stratford-upon-Avon

Sunny spring Saturday? Sounds like time for an epic adventure! I hadn’t been to the Cotswolds since my adventure to Cheltenham nearly a year ago so it was high time for another visit. I caught the train to Kingham on the edge of Oxfordshire and planned to walk to Stratford-upon-Avon. I was hampered a bit […]

Brecon Beacons

I had a couple of days off work last week and thought I’d go adventuring further afield. So I backed up my tent and headed for the nearest mountain range in the Brecon Beacons. I only had one full day so I tried to plan a route visiting as many peaks as possible. Or, to […]

Seagulls

Seagulls! The bane of any seaside visitor. Being pooed on is not lucky, it’s very unpleasant! Here we see an idle one posing for a photo. Shortly after he flew off to join his friend. No doubt planning some form of hooliganism. Here are another pair of gulls engaging in their favourite pastime: rooting through […]

My Tree

A long long time ago I found an acorn next to the reservoir near our house. I carried it all the way home and planted it in my flower patch at the end of the garden. And now look: it grew into a mighty oak tree! At the time I planned to build a tree […]

Aylesbury

Yesterday was unseasonably warm and fine so I headed off for an epic adventure from High Wycombe to previously unvisited county town of Buckinghamshire, Aylesbury. I could have followed the sensible route and headed directly north but that would have been boring. Instead I veered east to visit the pleasant Hertfordshire town of Tring and […]

Nuremberg

So after I’d been to the trade show in Nuremberg I took a day of holiday and did some sight seeing! Nuremberg has a lovely “old” town most was destroyed during the second world war and the rebuilt, although you can’t tell this immediately. Some buildings are original however, such as this cathedral and the […]

Circumnavigation of High Wycombe

Like a modern day Magellan I set off yesterday on an epic quest to circumnavigate High Wycombe. The town is only a few miles north of where I live but I have only ever visited it a handful of times. Having seen it from all sides I have reached the conclusion that it is very […]

Happy Cow

I met a really friendly cow while I was out today near reading! Here he is munching on some straw and sinking into the bog. I walked around a slightly epic 25 mile loop north of Reading which meant I didn’t get back to Henley until after dark. However, that meant I could test out […]

Brown Cheese With Jam

I was in Oslo again this week which is usually a cause for celebration as it’s the only place I know of where you can sample my favourite caramelised cheese by-product: brown cheese! Normally I have a few slices on bread like a regular cheese. This time however I was chatting to a colleague about […]
