So the day has finally arrived. It has come around quickly. We are off. In the air. Next stop, Alaska. This photo is from my iPhone during a training […]
It is almost 3 years since this point. Tom and I had just cycled over 3000 kilometres around Europe and were about to hop on to the ferry home. It […]
It was a great experience to watch the Tour de France last year in Yorkshire. As the build up for this years tour is about to begin I thought […]

The rowers are always up early, come rain or shine. This time it was definitely shining.

An action shot of Wat Arun from the river, Bangkok.
One of the largest, and probably one of the most colourful markets in the world. A maze of roads, people, and colours.
It’s always fun taking different forms of transport while you’re travelling.
So much sky.
So many golden Buddhas around the temple.
Every temple is intricate and interesting in its own way.
Such a great peaceful view of Bangkok at the top of the Golden Mount, although there is quite a few steps up to the top!
It is so much fun to wander about the streets of Chiang Mai at night. Many bargains can be had at the markets too!

Like a game of Jenga, the rock formations at El Torcal, Andalucia.
You never know what lies beyond the wall so just keep exploring.
While in the Andalucia region of Spain last month I visited El Torcal, not your typical destination in southern Spain but certainly one of the most awe-inspiring. When we arrived […]
