The story til now...
2008 trips included Bruxelles, Stockholm, Germany, French Pyrenees, Miami, Colombia, Lisbon and Madeira with Belgrade, Sofia, Istanbul yet to come.
Newest updates for other 2008 trips to Edinburgh,
Tartu, Isle of Man and Riga.
2007 included Llanberis , Caernarfon and Criccieth in North Wales, East Looe, and St Ives in Cornwall and Bodiam in East Sussex. My hometown pages are updated fairly frequently as nothing stands still in London.
In 2006 I managed time in Stockholm and a week in the Algarve in Portugal. Flying visits to Co. Dublin and ia week long trip to the Irish Midlands, mainly Clare, Tipperary and Offaly with my father & step-ma.
September 2006 entailed a trip to the Outer Hebrides, a place I'd always wanted to visit. There is something rather exotic about the Scottish Islands for a southerner such as myself: the Western Isles, Stornaway and the Isle of Skye. In November in a bid to beat the impending cold of a British winter I was off to northern Morocco visiting Fes, Asilah, Chefchaouen and Rabat.
2005 was an exhausting year, working, finishing my Masters but still getting a few trips away. I managed celebratory flying visits to see old friends in Montpellier and Helsinki, via Tampere and a day trip to Tallinn into the itinerary in the process. Earlier in the year I'd spent a month in Australia, time in Aarhus and Stockholm, plus a week in sunny Mallorca. Not so bad for such a busy lad.
- As an adopted Londoner, I tried to put my emotions of the events here in July 2005 into words in a London travellogue that day at: 7 July 2005 I know that what happened here pales into insignificance compared to other events of 2005, or even daily in some places, but such an act of hate on your doorstep can't go unmentioned. The irony for me was that it came only the day after I'd set up my London pages the day we were awarded the Olympics 2012, where I made the grudging acknowledgment that London had finally become home. And the next day's events, and London's response, reinforced that for me.
I'm always creating new pages, even if it's just a photo and some memories, - nothing worse than all those blanks down the travel list. I'm particularly fond of my Cricklewood page, a work in progress on the little known delights of suburban north west London...
