I had just over a week to kill before my next stint working and so decided to head north to Scotland while the weather was still relatively good (i.e. not snowing). Three days of rain in London before heading up did not bode well though.... Read more >

Jackets in Jersey

A week to kill and a friend who came from Jersey Island, a little island much like my home island of Wiaheke, was too much of an opportunity to pass up. So in July I joined her for a trip to the island of Jersey, slap bang in the channel between Britain ... Read more >

On a rare sunny day off I headed over to Windsor to check out the castle and walk the loop track through the grounds. The castle's pretty impressive (as it should be, being the oldest & largest occupied castle in the world) though I can't say much ... Read more >
