  • The Scotland Road Trip

    Between Christmas and New Year there is always a great few days when we are off work and I like to make the most of it. Last year we had amazing kitesurf conditions every day. This year I was already in North Yorkshire which is halfway there as far as I am concerned so I […]

  • Haugh Woods, Herefordshire

    Early morning stroll round Haugh Woods after a botched effort to make it out for sunrise. It was cold but sunny – a good way to start a day. Everything is looking fully autumnal now with lots of leaves on the ground. After 40 minutes my fingers were numb and it was time to head […]
