Kilimanjaro: Beyond My Comfort Zone – Part 2

With my Kilimanjaro summit dream dead and gone (for this trip at least) I was brought back to Moshi in a ramshackle, bouncy 4×4 truck, driven by a park ranger obsessed with two mobile phones. On the plus side we encountered a troop of baboons hurtling along the road ahead of the truck before they…

Strange in the Sticks

There’s no denying towns and cities have their share of the weird people and places, but I believe if you want a full dose of strangeness the countryside is the place to go. Many years ago I read a short yet sincere email in FHM magazine where a European visitor asked a question about London.…

I had considered doing a series of ongoing posts during my driving sessions right up to my test day but I figured it wouldn’t make very interesting reading. Instead, after some thought,…

Things That Piss Me Off – Stagecoach Cambridge, UK.

Stagecoach Cambridge have proven themselves to be lacking in every department where customer service is concerned. I’m pretty sure I’ve been in a bad mood recently and will snap out of it sooner or later, but whilst I’m here I may as well have fun with it! I’ve recently added a nice new section to…
