The aberlour a'bunadh (left) is mustard!

My New Year’s Resolution? To drink more world whiskies. Starting with Japan.

Tyre tribulations

Behold, have you ever seen a puncture quite like this?  I swear, a Stinger would have done less damage.

Not what you want in the pouring rain on the way home from work.  I took shelter in the doorway of a block of flats in order to change the tube (then still had to change the tyre when i got home) – of course I picked flats that were some kind of supported housing and had residents begging from me.

It certainly beats the shard of ’12.

North Norway Ice update

I have finally updated our guide-blog with the info Ian Parnell provided back in (rather ashamedly) February. I can only apologise for the delay – babies have that effect.

He has written a great article in this month’s Climb magazine (Jan ed.).  A preview can be found here but the full article includes some fantastic photos.

I’ll be picking up a copy, if I ever actually make it to the climbing wall again...
