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…

Cloud Porn, I’m at it’s mercy…

Eyes to the sky. Eyes to the sky. Whilst most people these days are hook necked looking expectantly at their mobile phones, I’m looking up. Is it only me who looks at the people bumping into things while they are walking down the high street only focused on one thing, their phone? It’s a modern…

COME ON WEATHER… I WANNA GO FLYING AGAIN!!

I don’t know about you, but I struggle with the dark nights and to be honest, winters in general in the UK. They seem to go on forever. In November it hits you like a tonne of shit, that for the next four months it’s going to be dark, cold and wet… mostly. That’s why I…

CARRY ON UP THE CAUSEWAY

The Adventures of Captain Jayneway Carry On Up The Causeway Sometimes I think a worm has crawled in my ear and eaten my brain while I’ve been asleep. It only happens on rare occasion, but it does happen. Sometimes it’s something that you can smokescreen without detection, other times it is not, like the day…
