Atmospheric

It was really foggy last Sunday evening. This is outside a block of flats near Uxbridge.

Amersham

Time to go adventuring from my new house. The cool thing about where I live now is that I’m right by a canal and country park despite being (almost) in London. So I get this sort of thing right outside: This Sunday I went exploring along the canal for a bit and then headed into […]

Coastal

Moving is so stressful! Anyway it’s mostly over now and I’m try to catch up with things I forgot to blog. In this case it’s a walk I did one September afternoon while I was staying with my parents. From their house to Rye, the next town along the coast. At first it’s very hilly […]

Hong Kong

After returning from Taiwan I was to enter a period of homelessness, so to prolong my trip for a bit I spent the weekend in Hong Kong. In contrast to Taipei, which as far as I can tell is perpetually cloud covered and usually raining, Hong Kong was very hot and sunny both days I […]

Taiwan Again

So after I got down from the mountain I decided to go exploring on the other side of Taiwan. I took the train – 火车 “fire vehicle” πŸ˜€ – to Keelung which is a harbour on the Pacific. My tourism leaflet suggested I visit the nearby former gold mining town of Jiufen. So I did […]

δΈƒζ˜Ÿε±±

Just because I’m in foreign parts doesn’t mean I can’t go adventuring at the weekend! Also the great thing about being in Taipei is that it’s surrounded by mountains. So Sunday morning I got the bus from just outside the hotel and 40 minutes later was in Yangmingshan national park. The bus stops about 500m […]

Immortality Liquid

Sadly unavailable at the moment. πŸ™

Thames Path

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. πŸ™ Anyway on Saturday I thought I’d go for a final wander in the […]

Commuting

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.

Henley to Cholsey

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 […]
