Trinidad

We left Vinales before the sun rose, and spent the best part of the 8 hour bus journey in and out of sleep, reading, and chatting. We finally arrived in Trinidad late afternoon, we quickly found our AirBnB and dropped our bags, before heading out to explore the colourful streets of Trinidad.  Trinidad is a … Continue reading Trinidad

Vinales

We arrived in Vinales by bus, a long one. Immediately after stepping off the bus we were swamped by dozens of people offering to take us to their lodgings or offer us their services as a taxi driver, thankfully we required neither as we had a home-stay booked within walking distance of the town centre … Continue reading Vinales

Havana

Harri and I flew into Havana via Madrid. We landed just after 2000 local time and then had to spend the next hour trying to get through immigration, probably the slowest passport control either of us has ever experienced. Finally, we managed to get through, had our passports stamped, signed a health form and handed … Continue reading Havana

100 Days of running 5km every day

So today marks the 100th day I have run at least 5 kilometres every single day this year, starting from 1st January 2020. I have run 655km in total so I have actually averaged just over 6.5km a day. My accomplishment has included some very late night runs (2330 is the latest start I have … Continue reading 100 Days of running 5km every day

I will be starting at Old Kent Road and travel around the Monopoly Board (in the order … Continue reading Monopoly Ultra Marathon

Kotor

We arrived late in Kotor Bay after the bus journey from Albania took a couple of hours longer than expected because of the border. We woke up and wandered through the cobbled streets of Kotor Old Town which is full of little streets which connect big open squares, with restaurants and cafes. After breakfast in … Continue reading Kotor

Albanian visit

Departing Heathrow on Friday evening we flew to Belgrade with Air Serbia, landing just before midnight. With over six hours to wait we wandered around departures until we stumbled upon some comfy, sofa-like chairs. We push a few of them together to make a bed, set an alarm and went to sleep. Harri was out … Continue reading Albanian visit

Inle hot springs

Having seen everything on Inle Lake that we wanted to we decided we would explore some of the surrounding area and chose to cycle to some natural hot springs about 12km away. We hired some dodgy bikes from our hotel (mine only had one brake working) and set off. When we got there mid-morning we … Continue reading Inle hot springs
