Travel Diaries

Traveling is a brutality. It forces you to trust strangers and to lose sight of all that familiar comfort of home and friends. You are constantly off balance. Nothing is yours except the essential things – air, sleep, dreams, the sea, the sky – all things tending towards the eternal or what we imagine of it.

The Drive Up

The Drive Up

Our first day was mainly spent driving up from Liverpool. We did walk up one hill though.

Up The Lakes

Up The Lakes

A week exploring the ups and downs of England’s most three dimensional county.

Snowdonia

Snowdonia

Kas entered the 2015 Snowdonia Marathon, so we were obliged to go and have a long weekend in Snowdonia.

Examining London

Examining London

I had a professional exam to take after a period of, well I’d like to call it “intensive study” but it would probably be better to call it “not being bothered” over the summer.

Coming Home

Coming Home

A long journey home with a very early start, and a ridiculous delay at the airport.
Just what you need to make the reality sink back in again.

The Final Day

The Final Day

A day with no particular plans other than chilling and packing and drinking all the remaining beer out of the fridge. I increased the time pressure by going out caching all afternoon.

Back to Sagres

Back to Sagres

Our final day trip out and we were a bit stuck for where to go, so we started off by going somewhere we’d already been once.
And then we went to a couple of new (to us) and rather lovely places.

Zoomarine

Zoomarine

It seems every holiday has to have a visit to some kind of water themed amusement park.
