A Year Back in Norwich

Almost a year ago to the day I returned to Norwich again after a 4 year absence. I had previously lived in Norwich (or Norfolk) from 2003 – 2007 and 2012 – 2014 but I have always said it feels like home and the main reason for leaving each time has been to make the necessa

A look ahead to 2018

After an epic end to 2017 with my new niece Dottie Rose Davies being born, it’s time to look ahead to the next 12 months! A lot of people mock New Years resolutions but I think if it’s an opportunity to stop and think about what you have got up to in the last 12 months and

Well another 12 months is coming to a close so I like to look back on the last 12 months to reflect on whether it has been a good year or not and to set myself some goals for the new one coming up. In my looking ahead to 2017 I listed quite a few things I wanted to achieve so it seems

Weather for Penguins

After a decent flight from Tampa to Pittsburgh (empty so row per person), I landed and had a fairly short journey to my hotel which was sandwiched between the Baseball and American Football stadiums. I had arrived pretty late and it was starting to snow, so I didn’t venture too

Welcome to Miami… Bienvenidos a Miami

It feels like I have spent 0 time in Birmingham or My Apartment over the last couple of months, and packing for the final week of work to go straight to airport was a pain but it’s a lovely way to kick off my December/January time off after this ludicrously short contract. The c

Leaving Latvia and onto Lithuania

For my last day in Riga, I spent most of the day in the KGB Corner House on a tour.  This was not some regenerated museum, it was a KGB building which was in tact with the prison cells and other rooms left as they were when the building ceased being a KGB building only in the early 90

First taste of Africa… Marrakech

After returning home from Dubai, a quick stop off to see my best mukka before his 30th and then I was back to London (Gatwick this time) ready for my first trip to the African continent. Hard to believe how short a flight it is to Morocco really, and it was a very welcome short flight

Off to the desert… Dubai!

Not kept this going throughout because really Dubai hasn’t got a huge deal of culture I would say.  This is definitely more of a chillout holiday for me as is my next one but hey ho… here goes. This trip has come a bit quickly all of a sudden!  I handed in my laptop and ph
