I started this site mainly to hold the photos from a four-month round-the-world trip I took in 2005. Travelling is one of my main hobbies, coming a close second to the planning of the next big trip.
I've lived in London all of my adult life, after coming here for university in 1982. A few years before I started this blog I moved to Bermondsey and bought an ex-council flat on the sixth floor of an estate a few blocks from the river. I can see Tower Bridge from my kitchen window! I'm not showing any signs of getting tired of London, and I really enjoy the industrial history and contrasts of this part of south east London.
