It’s all happening

For some reason it’s taking me a little while to figure out how to start this post. Let’s see if I can get this post going.

You might have noticed a little countdown ticking down on the sidebar over there. Or you might not, because you’re reading this in feedly or some other RSS reader. So this is a bit pointless.

Let me get right to the point. Read more

Project 365: 2014 – March

Project 365: 2014 - March

March started off fantastically. Nearly two weeks out of the country, on holiday. First, a few days in India for a fantastic wedding. Followed by a few days in Bahrain with the OH. The rest of March really couldn’t compare.

Fairly pleased with my first 3 months of Project 365. Though, definitely skipped more days in March. It couldn’t be helped. Well, no it could. I’m just making excuses.

If you asked me this time last year whether Bahrain would have been a holiday destination of mine. Twice. Before 2013 was out, there would have been one heck of a confused look on my face. And yet here I am. It’s the beginning of 2014 and I managed to squeeze in two trips to the little Middle Eastern island that is Bahrain between September and the end of the year. And they were both fantastic trips. Read more

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas everyone!

Bahrain sunset

From a pretty damn sunny and pleasantly warm Bahrain. This is definitely a different sort of Christmas for me.

Hello (and see you soon) Bahrain!

Hello (and See you soon) Bahrain

And I’m back. Well, I’ve been back in the country of tea and biscuits for nearly a week, but getting thrust back into work and having a slew of TV shows to catch-up are just the perfect excuses I’m using for not having blogged until now. Why I didn’t blog while I was in Bahrain? Well, I have no excuses for that.

I had an excellent time over there. Though, and there seems to be a running theme with this post already, I sadly didn’t take that many photos. At all. Excuses? None. Apologies? LOTS! Eh.. a few.

Bahrain was not at all what I was expecting. Though, to be honest, I hadn’t really formed a picture of what to expect from the tiny place. An island that would fit comfortably within the M25 surrounding London. It’s hot. That’s for sure. The heat hit me as soon as the doors opened at the airport. I had walked into an oven. And it was only 10am. Adjusting to the heat took some getting used to. But hopping from an air-conditioned car to air-conditioned buildings soothed that pain fairly easily. Read more
