2018

So, That was Christmas then...


Christmas in Turkey, just for a change
With just a little sense of irony we had Christmas in Turkey.

Strange really to pick a country that doesn't celebrate Christmas, but as it's full of lovely people and good food it was a great adventure.

Luckily we picked a place far from the Syrian boarder.

Just to start the year off, the boiler's packed up, the dishwasher's broke and the bike has worn out.

Plans have been started to get fit for the Summer expedition - the Pennine Cycleway.

Probably best to start with the bike. It'll have to be ready for the Summer and there's no sense leaving everything to the last minute.

One must get one's priorities straight....
