Hot and Sandy

Travel writing, pictures and stuff for people I know. Quite a lot of cycling talk, and some semi-controlled ranting. Hiking, outdoor and two-wheeled stuff, perhaps a little computing when it's worth talking about. Meandering thoughts.

I'm home from my trip abroad. Had an awesome time in Dubai and Hong Kong: the perfect combination of beach-side chillout with urban break. Swimming in the Gulf, where the water is like a slightly cool bath, then mixing with the crowds and intense lifestyle of HK. I will write some more about things I've seen and done (the Sheikh's air-conditioned stables were a surprising sight), but for the time being there are some photos of Dubai and HK online. Work is stepping up, so I expect to be pretty busy for the time being. I am also planning to sell off some bike bits, so if you need anything and you're in the London area, drop me a line!
