Becoming retro

Wednesday, October 24th, 2012

I saw a ford maestro the other day. They used to seem very dull but I think the shape Is starting to look cool and retro. What do you think?


Out of the fast lane and onto the train

Friday, April 20th, 2012

The roads between bicester and Oxford are always chocca block at rush hour with hot headed drivers, yet the train is often empty. It costs £2.40 return and has views over fields and great for deer spotting. Very relaxing. Train wins hands down for me any day.


Moroccan Delights

Monday, March 26th, 2012

About a month ago I visited morocco. Our surfy pals took us to stay in an area renowned for it’s great waves. We stayed in the fishing village of taghazout, north of Agadir. The waves were a bit flat apparently, but plenty big enough for me to get thrown about on my body board. That’s about as adventurous as I get. We stayed at a cool little place called surf n stay, run by a lovely Irish man who before moving to Moroccos was dairy farmer. I’d definitely like to explore more of morocco… There seems so much on offer… Dessert, mountains, skiing, magnificent cities and goats in wheelie bins…
