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…

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…

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…

THE ADVENTURES OF CAPTAIN JAYNEWAY & THE LYKE WAKE WALK

The Adventures of Captain Jayneway   The Lyke Wake Walk You haven’t had much sleep. You tried to go to bed early because you knew you had to get up ridiculously early, but spent much of that minuscule time wriggling about in bed thinking about what you were about to get up to do in a…

SIX FEET UNDER…

SIX FEET UNDER… Six Feet Under… Actually, it was more like about six meters under. Unless you’ve been living under a rock or maybe live on the other side of the planet, you can’t have missed the fact that it’s pissed it down with rain in North Yorkshire. This week, it rained non stop for two…

AUSTRALIA | TASMANIA

With Thailand, Bangkok and Koh Samui behind me, and a whirlwind trip to New Zealand, my second home  (lived there for five years)… The next leg of my epic trip took me to Tasmania… This leg of the trip was a long time overdue. I first met Greg and Anna when I was on a…

SO, THAT WAS 2011… AMAZING!

Well, that’s the end of it. After being back in the UK for a couple of months, it’s so easy to forget the first half of the year. Well maybe not forget, but it is a fading memory. I managed to fit quite a lot into 2011 and I can’t wait to do it all…
