After completing my trip 3 years ago and getting the site published I lost a little impetus and didn’t update it further. I then had an idea I’d start to put my music here and thought I needed something more sophisticated. I already had some domain names registered with a British company and they reckoned… Read More Back in the game?
I started this blog talking about chance and what appear to be inconsequential decisions having a major effect. I was disappointed when I left a day earlier than planned but had I left on the Tuesday I would have been caught in the Myferry strike and the subsequent trouble at Calais and probably wouldn’t have… Read More The Road to Nice: Epilogue
The plans for my stay in Switzerland are thrown into disarray when my friend is forced to stay in bed all day Sunday with what turns out to be the onset of flu. I amuse myself with a tootle around the area. Pretty but not a lot going on. It’s a busy Sunday lunchtime don’tcha… Read More The Road to Nice: Days 19-20 : Switzerland to Brighton

For the family it’s time to go home. For me it’s time to do 8 hours on the motorway to a gite in a village not far from Dole. I’ll be meeting up with the BMW mate I met in Dover in 1988 and an old friend from my time in Worcester. We’ve been meeting… Read More The Road to Nice – Day 11 : June 13th 2015 – Nice to Audelange
What did I say earlier about resolutions? I’ve been to this area 4 times in the last 10 years and each time I say I’m never bringing a bike down here again. I was hoping there would be some public transport available but unfortunately not where we were so if we wanted to go anywhere… Read More The Road to Nice: Days 5-10 Nice
