These Old Shoes

My old trainers

I can’t help but feel that this blog is getting a little self-involved. So instead I want to talk not about me, but a pair of old trainers, that after 3 years of loyal service are going into retirement.

  • Bangkok Thailand
  • Dubai, UAE
  • Washington D.C., USA

Okay, I admit it. This is a veiled attempt to again talk about me! I just find it fascinating that the last three years have seen me travel much further than I ever have before, yet on the grand scale of things there is still so much more to see.

My new trainers have a lot to live up to.

Funny how our belongings can come to take on a life of their own as we get used to them...
I love the photos of Oz from the plane on the way back from Cairns, they're beautiful. I love sky and cloud photos regardless but that Heaven and Earth one and the sunset are gorgeous. Brill!
