Stretching whilst hiking

Those of you who have seen me exercising in the past few years, will have noticed that I stretch the heck out of my Achilles tendon before doing anything. After a few years of doing this, my Achilles tendon is finally starting to feel healthy again 🙂


The picture was taken during a day hiking trip in Brandenburg. Thanks to Janie for taking the photo.

Abseiling in Jordan

The last time I went abseiling was in 1992. That time didn’t go so well, mostly because we had a silly teacher barking orders at us rather than just letting us hoppity hop our way down the cliff! This time went much more smoothly and was really quite easy 🙂 This was in a small canyon in Jordan, near the Dead Sea.

Thanks to Anarchy Productions for the pictures, which I stole from their video footage.
