All photos from this trip are HERE, previous installment HERE I think that leaving the beach made us feel a bit ill, a bit flu-like and bunged up – the realisation of home set in!  We opted to try the Verdon-sur-mer to Royan ferry to avoid a long drive, but […]

The Beach to Home

All photos from this trip are HERE, previous installment HERE Staying in Crest, we had, or rather tried for a morning run, but I think our bodies were beat!  The run was flat but so were our batteries!  Once we made it back we just about made the very busy […]

Crest to the Med

Well just come back from the Extreme Academy at Watergate Bay from my Kite Surfing lessons.  So – did I look like this? Sadly not. Carl my instructor was a top bloke and did all he could, and alas even despite is hot air (not aimed at me most of […]

Kite surfing @ Watergate Bay

After some successful eBay bidding, we bought two wakeboards in superb conditon (thanks Mike!) and collected them last night from Oxfordshire and then found a pub where they were more than happy for us to have a few beers and stay on their land.  So today in glorious sunshine we […]

New wakeboards :) and scars :(

Whilst waiting for big things to happen, we’re still out having fun.  Cue a few days testing the van in the Cotswolds both Wakeboarding and catching up with friends who we met previously on our travels. So at WMSki we had some cable wakeboarding practice and we both managed to […]

Wakeboarding fun in the Sun

We’re off to see “StarWars in Concert” at the O2 on Saturday.  However, some of the comments people have said to us are “Didn’t know you were Trekkies!” etc etc.  DOH!  WRONG FILM GUYS 🙂 When we got married, Mel actually walked down the isle to some classical music from […]

Off to Star Wars *LIVE* on 3 April…

Seems we have an excellent show near us. We’ll be popping along to look on the Sunday, and also I’ll be working on the Saturday with Roy Wood Transits helping them with their Westfalia and Horizons Unlimited van display.  So feel free to say hi! Details HERE

British Leisure Show – Windsor – 19-21 March

Oops.  Wrong place, wrong time, and we end up with a half page picture of us in MMM.  Wouldn’t be so bad if it was Young Adventurers Monthly or something – but MMM!!!!!!!!! Hahaha!

Fame! (Embarrassed to admit!)

Damn it! After coming to Scotland twice previously, once in May for the marathon, the weather was hot hot hot.  Today though its wet and, I guess, typical Scottish.  We’ve got a late performance of the Military Tattoo tonight.  If the weather improves it will be great…. The fringe has […]

Edinburgh Fringe – and raining!

I decided I’ve been working so hard I deserve a new toy. Okay – that may be open to some debate considering I’ve only done around 15 days in the last year – but even so – Mel agreed! Most excellent toy – half the fun is repairing it! Its […]

My new toy!

Yet again, we had an excellent long weekend at the WMSki cable wakeboarding lake in the Cotswolds. But for a change we went in a heatwave rather than constant rain. We went with friends, Gowry & Tim, and pushed each other to do some new things. Mel completed a whole […]

Wakeboarding and WMSki Cable Lake in the Cotswolds

We’re not art lovers. But we went to see the Banksy Exhibition at the Bristol Museum. We had to queue over an hour to get in, and another 45 mins to get into his exhibition room. But what was there was superb and worth the queue. In addition to his […]

Bristol Museum vs. Banksy Exhibition

Thanks to my parents for our zorbing trip as one of our Christmas presents of Zorbing. We went down to Zorb South in Dorset for a wet ride. It was actually really good fun – Mel screamed with laughter all the way down. Only downside is the price – no […]

Zorbing at Zorb South

For our sins, on 31 May 2009 we went up to Edinburgh for a long weekend and ran the Edinburgh marathon.  Our first.  Unfortunately, the weather was superb and probably the hottest weekend in Edinburgh for years – so not ideal for running.   Of 13,000 full marathon runners, only […]

Killer Marathon

Back in November 2008 we met a couple – Barry & Hazel – in a campsite in Holland where they had a little Mazda Bongo camper. We showed our van off and showed how much you can cram into a small space. Then another “internet contact” was selling his sister […]

Its a Flippin’ small world!
