An overnight trip to Cambridge (and your chance to win £500)

By | August 2nd, 2016|England|

Cambridge was calling, just an hour or so by train from central London, but even the excitement of new adventures couldn't hide the fact that it was 6.55am when my alarm went off. Blur, yuk, the same time as I have to get up Monday-Friday. Well, you know what they say, no pain no gain, [...]

Colour Obstacle Rush – Windsor, UK

By | May 10th, 2016|England|

The Colour Obstacle Rush - a 5k fun run with inflatable obstacles and coloured powder thrown against white t-shirts creating a rainbow of each runner. What's not to like? Sign Me Up ... oh and I'm bringing 3 friends with me. Since when did you run? Now I think this might be my first ever [...]

Taking a staycation in the Cotswolds

By | September 8th, 2015|England|

Just how far to do you need to travel in order to travel? By that I mean, do you need to leave you own town? County?  Country?  Continent? For the past years I must admit I've been very much caught in the idea set that I need to at the very least get on a [...]

The London 2012 Paralympics kicked off this past Wednesday (Aug 29th), and despite missing out of tickets to the Olympics, I was lucky enough to snare a couple of day passes to the Paralympics for Monday 3rd September. Our Paralympic tickets are quite cool in that not only do we get entry to the park, [...]

Oxford in (lots of) pictures

By | April 18th, 2012|England, Photographic Inspiration|

Its amazing how many pictures I managed to take in just a single weekend, but Oxford was very a photogenic city.  Aside from punting, which I blogged about last week, the mrs and I also took in a few of the shops, a museum or two, some markets and a jazz festival.  It was pretty full [...]

Punting in Oxford

By | April 13th, 2012|England, Photographic Inspiration|

Punting in Oxford is not easy!  Last weekend, with a little help from @Roomorama and @TravMonkey, I decided that for the 28th anniversary of my birth I would flee the dismal grey skies of London and head west along the M4 and then north west a bit up some A road I cant remember the [...]
