The Pacific Coast Highway | LA to El Capitan

Dave’s car packed in Redondo beach, camping gear in tow and without much of a plan, I set off up the Pacific Coast Highway to go and meet Dave in San Jose, with four days to get there. There’s no dressing it up, the drive out of Los Angeles was hair raising. Without the Sat…

Redondo Beach, California

I decided that I must at least cycle to the very beginning of the Marvin Braude Track and do the bit I missed out. So I once again set off from Dave’s house in Redondo Beach, navigating my way through the suburban back streets. I met a guy in a big UPS delivery truck and…

The Marvin Braude Bike Trail, Los Angeles, California

In pursuit of free things to do in Los Angeles, I set off from Redondo Beach this morning on my best friend Dave’s bike. I didn’t really have much of a clue where I was going, but I wasn’t too concerned. How lost can I possibly get? After a brief drive around with Dave a…

Roads to Rhodes

I’ll get straight to the point about my intentions for this trip to the Greek Islands. The plan. Get there and do nothing for a whole week. After the last six months, all I wanted to do it sit down and be quiet. This wasn’t my first visit to Rhodes. The last time I was…

A Jewel On The Tyne

A Jewel On The Tyne As the series of mini adventures continue, I can’t describe my amazement when I stumbled upon Tynemouth. Another place that I had seen the signpost pointing to many times, but not a name place that ever enticed me in enough to head up the road to see what was up…

Hadrian’s Wall… Housesteads Roman Fort to Steel Rigg

The Adventures Of Captain Jayneway Hadrians Wall – Part 1 One thing I am good at is multi tasking. If the mountain won’t come to Muhammad, then Muhammad must go to the mountain, or something like that. After three months of staring at the inside of hospital walls, as the last glimmer of summer creeps early behind the overgrown hedges….

Bossin’ the Hog!

The Adventures Of Captain Jayneway Bossin’ The Hog! Well it’s been a few weeks since I last did any ground handling. Life just gets in the way sometimes! About a week ago, I finally got around to assembling my very own windsock. I had some old ‘ready for the scrap man’ metal tent poles laying…

Backwards can sometimes take you forwards..

Backwards can sometimes take you forwards.. Bless me father, for I have sinned… It has been at least five months since I last as much as looked at or touched a paraglider (in any capacity). Actually the only sin has been the really shit weather in the UK. I know I have mentioned it several…

THE OUTER HEBRIDES | PART ONE…

Western Scotland & The Outer Hebrides Another Solo Adventure… Part | One From Yorkshire to Scotland to Barra on The Outer Hebrides I’d been harping on to anyone that would listen about going to the Western Isles of Scotland for decades but had never got around to doing the trip. It’s not the sort of…

My Solo Outback Adventure | Australia

My Solo Outback Adventure | Australia The Outback I was sat in my van in South Australia on the night before I had to give the van back. I didn’t really want to give the van back at all, but the weather had turned to shit and I was listening to the howling wind and…
