Jollies this year...

I must say I have never fancied camping. I bought a touring caravan a couple of years ago and get away in that quite a bit and the kids love it

I never did either but we spent money on a decent tent and bought proper air mattresses as some friends asked us last minute. The kids loved it and there's something about drinking/cooking outside in the great outdoors. It won't replace our "normal" villa holidays etc but it's nice to just sack off Friday afternoons at the drop of the hat and pitch up for a couple of nights. I have however been spoilt given this is one of the best summers in years. Give me some rain and the tent will be in the nearest wheelie bin.

 

I couldn't be arsed with towing a caravan!

I bought a VW campervan a couple of months ago so this summer we will be focusing most of our holidays around that. On Friday we head off for a 2 week camping trip which starts with a 3 day VW festival near Cheltenham.

Mates wedding in Cyprus in August. Going for 5 days and then flying to Santorini. Then ferry to Athens and eventually get to Istanbul via train then fly home. Should be about 3 weeks in total. 

Also going to Seville next month which I'm looking forward to.

Only thing booked in so far is this walk I’m doing in April. 191 miles from one side of the country to another. Dreading it. 

Looking at going away sometime in June/July with a couple of mates but not sure where. Barcelona seems to be the favoured destination. I’ve been a few times before so not all that excited for it but should still be a good laugh.

A few of you lads kindly donated to my little charity trek so just thought I’d post a little update.

Started Saturday morning in St Bees and spent the first 3 days clambering over the Lake District. Some of the hill tops still had ice on top and no identifiable trail so we were just climbing up hoping for the best. It got dicey at times but thankfully we made it over. 

The other 2 lads dropped out after that as their feet were fucked but I’ve kept on and am now in Muker which is some nondescript village in the Yorkshire dales. Onto Richmond tomorrow which is a fairly steady 17 miles or so in preparation for the big push for the final 3 days. 

It’s been the most physically and mentally demanding thing I’ve ever done but I’m enjoying it in a perverse way. The weather looks like holding up too so that’s a positive. Also I managed to miss the shit show against Blackburn so can’t complain.

It's a beautiful part of the world Danny. Toured there twice on the bike. 

I'm off to the states Thursday for a fortnight. Florida for a few days then a short flight to Memphis..The birthplace of rock n roll & soul. Can't wait.

Not been to floriday since I was 10. What is there for someone older than 10 and younger than 70? I'd like to visit again for the space centre. Not sure you'd catch a launch. Loved california as a kid - i'd like to go back to Yosemite. I wasn't a normal child! 

I'm off to my friend's cottage in Ontario in August.
