5 houses in 4 months

A Tale from Transylvania. The video was shot two years ago but I have only just finally finished editing. The story is about how we had to get the roofs on 5 houses before the winter snows. We had 4 months to do it – did we make it in time?

The view from my seat in Marsa Matruh.

I’m sitting where so much of my book and diary’s have been written over the last six years. Each time the chair, if you can call it a chair, is different. Normally the seat has died and now in its reincarnated state; with new pieces of wood, steel or plastic added to the original design, […]

A Tourist in Sharm El Sheik

They say one of the problems of travel is you don’t fit in when you come back home, but you also never really fit in where you have decided to make your knew home. I live in the desert, I speak Arabic enough for any one to see I am not fresh off the plane […]

A tourist in London

I’m sitting in a coffee shop in Charlotte st. It’s 8.12am. It’s weird, I’ve been a tourist, a person completely disconnected with a city’s ways, many times.

Runescape and football

“Dad Dad!” “What Angus?” “Someone’s hacked my Runescape account?” “Shit!”. It used to be that real Dad’s used to teach their kids to play football or watch them at least on Sundays. ‘New Dad’ spends his time understanding, or at least I do – what Runescape is all about. Angus lives in an online world […]

After picking up Helen Grossman, a friend from the UK from Cluj Napoca Airport we went and did a bit of exploring in a remote gypsy village on the way to Breb. Have a look at the pics below. .

In need of slight renovation

On Sunday I found the time to do a little bit of exploring with a guy I know in Baia Mare. “We go where no tourist go.” he said “Must people in Baia Mare never hear of this place, and they never been here” When we arrived after bumpy up a dusty track for half […]
