Life in a nutshell, 'cos it's better if you're nuts!

A collection of random thoughts, adventures, happenings and general goings on in the Gardner Family.
Mega Day

Mega Day

West Midlands Mega Day – so of course I chose to go caching in Litchfield. I mean, the event lasts all day, so why rush there?

Knotty Problems

Knotty Problems

A day doing the Knotty Problems puzzles series set by the West Midlands Mega crew. I had Simply Paul riding shotgun.

Home Time

Home Time

Home time. The end of the holiday, so a day spent trying out lots of different forms of transport, hopefully leading to my own car.

Final Fling

Final Fling

The final fling of our holiday in Crete, except there wasn’t a lot of flinging, or very much else for that matter.

Acqua Plus

Acqua Plus

A day at Acqua Plus, Crete’s biggest water park. There were slides, big rubber rings, and way too much arse cheek for one day.

Cretan Mountains

Cretan Mountains

A day doing some geocaching while the ladies chilled. I started with a few on the north coast before heading into the Cretan mountains.

Knossos

Knossos

Visiting Knossos is, I think, mandatory whenever you go to Crete. It’s old and famous and the insects make a very loud noise.

MKGees on Tour

MKGees on Tour

MKGees on Tour was a geocaching event I created for the holiday. Always do that, and then you’ll always have an event to log

Slow Day

Slow Day

A slow day after the Samaria Gorge Walk – we did loads of nothing, because we were pretty much all exhausted and stiff

Samaria Gorge

Samaria Gorge

A day trip to walk down the Samaria Gorge from top to bottom. It was pretty hard going all the way but we made it

Two Beaches

Two Beaches

A day in Agia Pelagia involving two beaches – an early morning walk to Lygaria followed by an afternoon plodge at Agia Pelagia

Spinalonga

Spinalonga

A day trip to Spinalonga Island – former Venetian fortress, leper colony and prison, and now a top tourist haven.
