Kota Kinabalu, Borneo; May 2017

KK is just a town - a hub to get things done. There is nothing particularly remarkable about it. Well, that's not true - the night market is excellent. It is, however, a great place to stage other activities from. The mountain bearing a similar name brought me to the town. I'd built in a … Continue reading Kota Kinabalu, Borneo; May 2017

Niah National Park, Boreno; May 2017

Niah is a national park centred around the¬†huge Niah Cave which has anthropological significance. There is a lot (relatively speaking) of rainforest surrounding the cave, but I didn't have time to explore that and was focussed on the cave including its burial sites and paintings. I had to repeat steps of my previous journey, but … Continue reading Niah National Park, Boreno; May 2017

I was a little anxious about the beer as my tastes have moved on since … Continue reading Black Sheep Brewery & Middleham Brewery, Yorkshire Dales; November 2016

Ancient Delphi, Greece; October 2016

Apparently Zeus worked out that Delphi was the centre of the world by setting off two eagles from the extremities of his domain and seeing where they met. Seems flawless to me and I assume those cars we all¬†think Google are photographing streets are actual perpetually colliding to map the world accurately. Delphi's provenance aside … Continue reading Ancient Delphi, Greece; October 2016

Norikura-Dake & Around, Japanese Alps.

A great few days here walking and climbing. The hiking season was still a little way off as they get a lot of snow here. So it was ice axe and crampons and cutting steps which is very tiring, but it was worth getting onto one of the Norikura peaks for some great views. The … Continue reading Norikura-Dake & Around, Japanese Alps.
