Following on from my trip to the Philippines, I headed to Kuala Lumpur in Malaysia for a few days before flying back to the UK. I had already visited KL back in 2013, but wanted to revisit for more exploration! KL is a big city but so much easier to get around than Manila and…

For my main vacation for this year I decided to head back to the Philippines. I planned to stay in Manila and also Puerto Princesa on the island of Palawan. I was going mainly to catch up with friends but also to do a little more exploring as I didn’t really see much of Puerto…

After leaving Gloucester, I then headed down to Bristol for the next part of my vacation. I spent 3 months during this year’s hot summer so it was interesting to be back here in winter. Preparations were in full swing for Christmas and there was a wonderful German-style market in the Broadmead area. On the…

      On vacation and arrived in Gloucester this afternoon. It’s lovely to be back after almost 6 months. So what’s a boy got to do? Visit the cathedral of course! Decided I would go to Evening Prayer at 16:30 which was in the gorgeous but intimate Thomas Chapel. There was just two of…
