Welcome to my little blog, created primarily as I keep forgetting where I’ve been. OK, that’s not the greatest reason to create a blog, but it does me. I like history, quirky things, adventure (not too much), trains, planes, fast food, slow food, craft beer and walking.

So there’s lots about the LDWA 100 and I managed to walk this myself in 2021 (brave and perhaps stupid I admit). I’m the national communications officer for the LDWA (long distance walkers), so I mention this quite a lot….

I like random as well, so I’m also doing my own version of the GeoGuessr challenge, where I get given a random location in the UK and then I just go there. The theory is that there’s an interesting story to be told wherever the destination. I accept it’s not exactly climbing Everest, but it’ll keep me amused in late 2021.

There’s also stuff about Accor Hotels who I stay at quite a lot, as well as flights and lounges which are mostly all about British Airways. I’m also slowly working my way around pubs listed in CAMRA’s Good Beer Guide.

Talking of 100s, here’s the last 100 posts, to give a flavour of the torrent of piffle I’m capable of (and some interesting bits along the way I think for anyone who can sift through everything).

Finally, I’m from Norfolk, so there’s quite a lot about that too….

My pub of the year (an award not exactly internationally recognised just yet) in 2019, the Hop and Vine in Hull, who kindly put this on their board   🙂
