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…

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…

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.

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…

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…

THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN JAYNEWAY… CARRY ON UP THE HILL

I was walking down the woods with the dogs this morning, thoughts trailing through my mind, as they do. Titch, the sheepdog, spotted something over the hedge, but I just ignored it, I thought she must have been looking at a rabbit or something. Then, when I turned the volume down on the head chatter,…

NEW ZEALAND | REVISITED

The Adventures Of Captain Jayneway New Zealand After much cocking about, like flying from Bangkok, back to Singapore, with a five hour wait to connect, then flying to Sydney, for a whole twelve hour wait to get to Auckland… I arrived in Sydney, and thank god it was sunny. I had been up since 5am…

THE DUBLIN DIARIES

NEW YEARS EVE IN DUBLIN I said years ago that I wanted to spend New Years Eve in as many different countries as I could. Some times it just can’t pan out that way for one reason or another and even if I have done it in Budapest, Australia, Fiji, Amsterdam and New Zealand, I have skipped…
