"..." NEILHALLIDYA's Profile

A combination of things has meant I havent travelled much for the last two years. A new job, apathy and lack of £s being the main ones.

My last trip abroad was to Ethiopia. This was hard work. And an experience. Although, not one I would necesserily wish to repeat.

Since then, in my holidays, I`ve explored the bits of Scotland that I had previously not visited. A trip to the far north followed by a trip to the Outer herbrides. Both worthwhile.

Hopefully, I`ll get the chance to venture further afield again some time soon...

Some time ago I visited Burkina Faso.

An infrequently visited country in West Africa. My pages are not as extensive, or articulate, as they could be. However, of all my pages, I'd steer people to these and the following travellogue first.

Sad Eyes of a Child - Burkina Faso

Although, I am currently very very out of condition I enjoy mountains and mountaineering.

I've visited most of the major ranges in the world but would recommend a visitor to my pages on the Rwenzori Mountains of Uganda which I was lucky enough to visit last year.

A very interesting glaciated mountain range on the Equator.

Mountains of the Moon

I have worked in the UK Water Industry for the over the last 10 years.

I spent about 9 years in operational management and then moved into education. Trying to encourage future generations to look after water..........

    Yikes, has it been that long since I logged onto VT...?? I just read your comment regarding West Wycombe - my cousin used to live there, just above the Black Boy Art Gallery. (I think that's what it was called!)
