In the spirit of old school days, very much upon return from my holidays (I am sitting at the airport drinking a very expensive beer), I feel obliged to summarise the happenings of the past month and a half.
I don’t often go all gooey and positive on you lot but right now it has to be done.
So, what did I do on holiday?
I hung out with my family, ate their food and drank their wine. A fair share of wine. And beer. But that was the plan, you see….
I ordered sunshine and I had sunshine. I wanted fog and I got fog. Then the gentle spring rains came to remind me of the true frizz in my hair. The days were long and evenings fragrant with promises of great things to come. Great things always come and money gets printed daily, so what do we worry about?
I shopped for bargains and struggled with choice - again.
I found good tea and drank gallons of it, the rest of the crop is in my suitcase. It is not Czech tea, just for the record.
I hiked and cycled and hiked again and got lost in the woods. Then I found myself. Or my way should I say.
I saw deer, snakes, woodpeckers, hares and met a few friendly pussycats.
I got sandblasted on the beach - this, also, wasn't in Czech. I went to Norfolk briefly, which is not in Czech but the in UK.
I drank beer with my bare feet in the grass watching the lazy river flow in the afternoon sunshine.
I drowned myself in violently yellow fields of oilseed rape and sneezed all over it.
I smelled lilac and rolled in grass full of daisies and dandelions.
I ate sausages cooked over open fire.
I met new, very cool people. I ate cheese with them washed down with some beer and wine, just so you know.
I saw old friends for reminiscing sessions.
I saw old friends and planned our future.
I laughed A LOT.
I scaled old city streets and explored castle ruins.
I nearly broke Instagram with my daily load of snapshots of everything for which I would like to apologise.
I breathed clean fresh air.
I slept under the stars.
I did a lot by myself and had a blast, enjoying every moment and had a really good “me time”.
I recharged my batteries and brought some earplugs with me.
Bring it on, Cambodia!

Never still, always on the move, looking for the perfect capture... Cambodia is currently my home, presenting endless opportunities....
In this blog you will find no profound wisdom.
Just accounts of daily life, sometimes about photography, often about wine, occasionally about travel adventures and sometimes about nothing at all.
