Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. We hope you’ve had a wonderful year and enjoy the festive period. Richard and I have had a lovely year and have enjoyed a mix of travelling, spending time with family and friends and getting married (we were already legally married but on our 11th anniversary we converted…

Christmas Day Trip to Paris

We enjoyed a wonderfully festive (and nippy) day in Paris which got us both into the Christmas spirit. It was actually rather cold to hold the camera to take shots and it was very busy so I didn’t take as many photographs as I thought I would (mind you this is the best of 616…

New York Like Never Before

Things that happened on this trip to New York that have not happened before: I got a Nutella facial! We had a near miss with a money clip Bumped into a guy in a tiger skin Zoot suit We went up One World Observatory and saw nothing Saw Manhattan from Top of the Rock at…

A relaxing week in Espana 

Richard and I have returned from a lovely week in Spain.  We had a lovely week chilling out, enjoying the relaxed atmosphere and the nice weather.  I enjoyed a couple of runs along the prom (although a mid afternoon run in gales wasn’t my best idea).  I even joined Richard at the range for a…

City to city 

Had a work trip to Rotterdam earlier this week. Not much time to relax but it was interesting. Managed to snap some interesting shots flying over London on the return. Also got some fun snaps tied to the conference I attended with thanks to the Axe (Lynx) team and Instagram … As you can see…

The eventful Spanish run

I didn’t run first thing today as we had a very long day on Ronda yesterday and we both decided to have a lie in.   I waited until after my siesta for it to cool down before heating the promenade.  This was a very different one to what I am use to hear as…

Ronda and Acinipo

We had a day away from the coast and did the long windy drive to Ronda.  It’s been several years since we last visited but it’s such a lovely place, we had to go back.  This time as well as the old town, the views of the gorge, the balcony and bullring… We also visited…

Lungs full of sea air

It felt so much better to be running in the warm with clean sea air.  I hear we’ve missed snow and wintry conditions whilst being in Spain so I’m grateful we came away when we did.   This was my first opportunity to run so I got out of bed, put on my kit and…

Man Machine?

Well it certainly did not feel like I was one today.  I actually felt that I was running like a robot! Ok so this is my first run out in a while and a short one as we have just returned from Germany and the Kraftwerk concert. The weather has taken a real turn here…

Kraftwerk 

Tour du… Essen  The photos do not capture the 3D show which accompanied the set which seemed to leap into the auditorium or envelope Kraftwerk during their performance. very clever. The dancing robots for We are the Robots was very creepy.   Creepy…
