Sea Kayaking in Sardinia – Our Last Day

With the sea kayaking finished, Anna and I had an extra day in Sardinia. Breakfast was a somewhat quieter affair today as some of the party had already left. It was just Hannah, Vicky, Anna and I. The fare was the same as previous days, although the eggs seemed to have moved up a notch...

Sea Kayaking in Sardinia – Day 3

The final day of sea kayaking already and the itinerary looked good. The weather looked nice as well as we all piled into the minibus after breakfast for the short drive to the beach of Tramariglio on the Capo Caccia Peninsula in Sardinia. The drive there was pretty spectacular as we followed the road along...


Sea Kayaking in Sardinia – Day 2

Day two of kayaking and we had already fallen into a familiar routine.

Anna and I therefore booked a little adventure to go Sea Kayaking in Sardinia. Morgan didn’t really want to come with us so...

Testing the EV Charging Infrastructure

Morgan and I have just got back a long weekend away which was a good excuse to test out our new Hyundai Kona EV on a longer drive. At about 500 miles in total we were going to have to rely on the UK’s charging infrastructure. We weren’t too worried about it, despite the various...


Trekking in the High Atlas of Morocco – A Mount Toubkal mini-Adventure

Wow! I don’t say wow very often, but ‘Wow’, what a weekend that was! A crazy weekend in Morocco visiting the markets of Marrakech and magnificent mountains of the High Atlas, with a sunrise summit of the highest peak, Mount Toubkal, at 4167m. Things started fairly frantically on Thursday afternoon while Anna was heading back...

Wow, what a weekend that was! I left work on Thursday afternoon with a fully loaded van. Three bikes, kit for a quadrathlon, surfboards and my surf ski as I had a busy weekend ahead of me. First thing was a drive to my parents house in Gloucestershire where I had dinner and spent the...
