It’s the end of an era! This is my last weekend living in Maidenhead before I move closer to work in Uxbridge. I moved into this flat a whole six years ago, as this blog documented. Quite sad to be leaving. Anyway on Saturday I thought I’d go for a final wander in the environs […]
On Monday night I finally fulfilled my dream of going for a walk on the M25. The atmosphere was surprisingly jovial. By chance the guy in the blue mini had stopped just behind his driving instructor. Definitely looking forward to having a five minute walk to work.
OK, so I lied a bit in the last post when I said adventuring was postponed until autumn. Last Sunday I thought I’d go for a late afternoon mini hike between Henley and Cholsey, hopping over the Thames at Wallingford. Such a peaceful evening! Here’s a lane crossing the Ridgeway trail which I was following […]
Last Saturday I went for a walk around the Roman ruins at Silchester which I first visited way back in 2010. I spent a while trying to take photos of a yellow cereal plant. Maybe it’s wheat. This was my favourite: It’s been a bit too hot for extended adventuring recently. Also work and moving […]
It occurred to me recently that despite living in Maidenhead for nearly six years I’ve made hardly any forays southwards, except the occasional visit to Windsor or Staines. Yesterday I decided to rectify that and bravely strode across the M4 into uncharted lands (over a bridge, mind you). I walked roughly parallel to the M4 […]
I’ve wanted to visit Shropshire ever since I saw some photos of the hills along the border between England and Wales. However it’s unreasonably difficult to get there from where I live at the moment: either a four hour train journey or a long drive up the M40 and around Birmingham. So as it was […]
As you might have gathered I spent the last week on a work trip to Taipei. I’ve never visited Asia before so this was pretty awesome! I flew out with another guy from work on Friday evening so we had Sunday and Saturday evening for sightseeing. Sunday was mostly spent wandering around the city, visiting […]
The wearing-a-mask-when-ill thing is such a good idea. I wonder what it would take for it to catch on in the West.
So my work trips have taken a turn for the exotic and I’m in Taipei all week visiting a contract manufacturer (more on this later). The hotel has the very latest innovations in toilet technology! Looks like a normally toilet at first glance but behold the highly complex electronic control panel! Thankfully full instructions are […]
