So this week I’m off to Cincinnati in Kentucky to visit a warehouse in preparation for setting up a similar operation in Derbyshire. I’ve never been to Kentucky before but alas I don’t think I’ll have much time to see the sights or reveal in its glory. I’m there for only three days and they … More Heading to the States
This may seem strange, but at 40, and having lived all my life* in the UK, I’ve never lived north of the Thames river. Sure I’ve BEEN north of the Thames, but I’ve never lived above it. I once flat-sat in Wilesden Green** for a couple of weeks, and I’ve been camping in the Lake … More Moving North
The time is nigh. The End is near. The after party is over and it’s time to start work! After a year away and 19 months off work, and having been back in the UK for a month, I now have two firm job offers to choose from or a choice to wait round for … More Reality bites

Hauraz is high in the Andes in the centre or Peru and I convinced Kate to go there to do some mountain trekking. Nothing too hard core, just a few high Altitude (4000m+) non strenuous walks. And I am so glad we did as it was absolutely beautiful. I like hiking. I like it … More Hauraz – Peru
Happy New Year all! I hope you achieve all your goals for this year, and if you haven’t set any, well Instead I hope you have happiness and if I may be so bold, love. If you don’t want either of those feel free to return them unopened 😉 But back to me … More 2014 maiden run – battling the Blurch
10 years ago today my dad passed away. I was abroad at the time much like I am today and much like today, I felt totally helpless for not being there to comfort my mother.

We interrupt your normal travel updates to bring you some other ramblings. As the title may suggest, this post is about running. So, I once loved running. And I tell myself I still do though I never used to. Until the age of 36 I had never run a 10k. I then did … More Running.
