Chiavari & Lavagna

Weekend break on the Ligurian coast. Quiet (except for the church bells), chilled (except for beach run), nothing bonkers (except for the bonkers amount of rain).

Six Parks Challenge

Another park in the mix for a nice start to the week. Not gonna break any records but having a wicked time. And – a year on – I still LOVE my running shoes.

First day off from the course. I woke naturally at seven which was nice, and actually such a pleasure to see my bedroom & bathroom by daylight, and then outside, the plants & fields around the property, to see them properly. Quick getting ready (am used to that now!) and I popped out of the gate (didn’t know there was a gate) to the rice fields. I’d been around here when I went to Sari Organic the other evening but I hadn’t seen anything, it being dark.

running around the SWs

Over the last few months I’ve been doing a bit of running around the SW postcodes and it’s been fun. Actually at times it’s been knee-bashing (compared to usual off-roading), dark, rainy n grimy, and sometimes just way too my-gear-is-better-than-yours (yes, worse than Australia) BUT on the whole, good’n’groovy.

running around the Merstham Lakes

I’ve stretched my legs a few times around the Merstham Lakes now. Each time I’ve found new parts to explore and there are still more intriguing footpaths and options that I haven’t taken. I’m really pleased that this area has been paid attention – the conservation and the accessibility – because it’s really pretty and valued a lot by the locals.

South Thailand Islands

Dad joined me for ten wicked days in Thailand. We stuck to the South, exploring the islands & bays, in fact Dad didn’t spend one night on the mainland!

We travelled light and along the way took creeky mopeds around town (all three of us on that, really…?), ultra-slick speedboats to the Full Moon party and hitch-hiked to the airport.

Although it was out-of-season we met a lot of brilliant people: locals who wanted to share their regional dishes; little’uns who wanted to share our wallets; backpackers who wanted to drink; honeymooners who wanted to chat; walkers who, er didn’t want to walk; hosts and guides who wanted to help, laugh & hang.
