My Adventures
I've had my share of adventures, and insofar as they coincide with my having a camera and a website, I try to include them here:
When I visit my folks, my abode of choice is a wooden shack we built in the garden.  Designed at the back of A-level maths classrooms and built from the remains of old dairy buildings, what it lacks in central heating it makes up for in character and hammocks.

A year working for an Engineering Consultancy firm may sound glamorous to some.  Three days cleaning up after a Branston Pickle explosion will soon change such rosy preconceptions.

A few friends and I developed and perfected the Brave and Noble game of Glassball while at university.  Basic equipment required: standard-issue university ashtray, 13 Stella bottles and one ping pong ball.  Read this dedicated blog to find out more.

They said it couldn't be done.  They said it was a stupid idea.  This pair of madcap thrill-seekers - Colin and myself - spend a day seeking out and photographing every Number 67 house in the area.

As anyone who has had the privilege of a university education will tell you, it's all about the pranks.  Throughout my three years, when I wasn't busy napping in lectures, I was subtly relabelling local specimens of modern art.

Coventry, the incubator of such greats of jet-powered flight as Sir Frank Whittle, is riddled with memorabilia.  At any rate, you'd be surprised what you can find if you look hard enough.

The open road, the dusty highway.  When you've got to get to Scotland, and you've got to get there fast, this is not the way to travel.  Nevertheless, from someone who has hitched in almost as many countries as his brother, I highly recommend it.  
Hitch-hiking in the British Isles
Montenegro, a country of glorious scenery and a night-sky nothing like Coventry's, the location of a mission trip during university, and a subsequent visit shortly after.

The Logos Hope, a 12,500 tonne car-ferry that I helped convert into the world's largest floating bookshop.  Run by a crew of 400 volunteers, this ship is now sailing around the world.  Summer 2009 saw me return to share in their transatlantic voyage to the Caribbean.

Building a canoe is something more people should try.  My wife and I built our own at my parents' place in the summer of 2012.  My dad runs canoe building weekends through his business,

If you're looking for my personal blog, Footnotes, I don't know what to tell ya.  It's gone, folks.  Move on.  I'm a professional now, you know.  Can't be putting all my crazy online now, can I?
