I had some surprisingly well-timed holiday booked this week so I decided to visit a nearby(ish) castle at Rochester. The last time I came here I was a small child and all I remember is being terrified by how tall and massive it was. Some shrinkage has occurred over the last twenty years. Still it’s [...]

Title says it all: some red flowers in a field last weekend: I don’t know what sort they are . Also a big stone in a place appropriately called Ibstone: Wikipedia thinks the stone is marking the Bucks/Oxfordshire border, which is a bit mundane. Also I’ve decided that driving is among the most stressful and [...]
One of life’s little tragedies. Well at least the sun’s come out now. This is a pretty church tower in Hambleden. Haven’t posted many photos recently so here’s one of some wavy grass. Also corn. Can’t forget the corn. Nice clouds too.

Finally it was sunny enough to go walking on Saturday. So I went adventuring in previously unexplored territory near Princes Risborough. Tried unsuccessfully to get a tan, instead I ended up with lots of nettle stings . Here’s some generic pleasant countryside: Also, a cute little church:

I went to Munich for a few days last week with my friend Kelly. Mostly it rained so thankfully there were plenty of indoor museums to do. But on the one sunny day we went to this awesome castle at Neuschwanstein in the Alps. Unfortunately one whole side of the castle was covered in scaffolding [...]
Yesterday while I was out exploring I discovered this beautiful pink tree. Is it a cherry blossom? Maybe a tree scientist would know. Anyway, the tree was full of bees! Which is a bit of rarity these days I think. Tried to take some photos of them but unfortunately they don’t much like posing. Also [...]
