Peak District Walking Weekend

For the last bank holiday in May, Nimesh and I organised a group of friends to go walking in the Peak District.  We were really lucky with the weather and managed to do hikes around Bleaklow, Kinder Downfall and Castleton. 

I can't wait to do it again!

 

Cans Festival

If you're a fan of grafitti, then you'll love the Cans Festival.  The Cans Festival takes place in Leake Street, near Waterloo Station and features a whole tunnel of graffiti art including some by Banksy.

 

 

Porsche vs. Ferrari Experience

Chrissy and I did a Porsche vs. Ferrari experience at the Prodrive circuit near Warwick in September 2008. Despite the torrential rain, it was a lot of fun.

 

The winner was definitely the Porsche Turbo. I definitely need one of those in my life!

 

Weekend in Warwick

(plus a little of Stratford Upon Avon)

After doing the Porsche vs. Ferrari Experience on Saturday morning, Chrissy and I spent the remainder of the weekend checking out Warwick, Warwick Castle and a little bit of Stratford Upon Avon. 

 

Despite the terrible weather, we had a  good weekend.

 

Glastonbury 2008!

In June 2008, I accompanied Wibby and her mates for five days of music and fun at the Glastonbury festival.  It was a real eye opening in terms of the sheer amount of music to listen to, strange sights and even stranger tribes of people. 

 

Flight Crew

Chrissy and I went to a friend's 40th fancy dress birthday party in January. The theme was come as what you wanted to be when you grew up.

 

I went as a pilot and Chrissy as an airline hostess.  While Chrissy looked fabulous in her short dress, everyone told me I looked like a bus conductor.

 

Barbican Centre Visit

Neelam and I had a walk through the city and checked out the Museum of Terrestrial Art Exhibition at the Barbican Centre. 

The exhibition was a bit weird but I had a good time with Nee and managed to take a few good photos like the one opposite. 

 

Oliver's Christening

In September, Dan invited me to be a god father to Oliver, help with the christening and take lots of pictures to remember the occasion.

 

 

 

 

 

 

New Forest Weekend

 

In June, Chrissy and I went up to the New Forest to do some walking and check out the forest's wild ponies that roam all over the national park. 

 

We also checked out a little bit of Beaulieu and Buckler's Hard.

 

 

 

Learning To Dive In Egypt

 

A 20 year dream finally realised - learning to scuba dive.  And what a place to do it, the Red Sea in Egypt!

 

I even got attacked ... by a clown fish.

 

Enjoy the photos. Nearly all of them are underwater. 

 

 

Lake District Weekend

Over the Easter Weekend, Chrissy and I went up to the Lake District to do some walking and attend a friend's child's naming ceremony.

 

It was a great weekend of walking, drinking friends, all kinds of weather ... and lots of glorious snow!

 

 

Banksy Exhibition
 

 

Gerald Laing Exhibition ... and a bit of Brick Lane

  

 

New York, New York

In late 2007, I managed to convince my bosses to let me work from New York for a week.  On the weekends, I travelled around Brooklyn, Coney Island, Greenwich, Soho, Harlem and several other places I can't remember. What a great city!  In all of my visits to New york, I could finally see myself living there.
