London

The route from WEL to LON

Cycled 80 miles from Wellingborough to London

Dear Diary, I fancied a very long bicycle ride. I wanted to repeat the ride I did a couple of years ago. I loved the feeling of setting off cycling from my house and during the same trip, cycling along Whitehall. On Tuesday 15th August 2017, I awoke a little late – it was around [...]

Me in front of the Pride police car

London Gay Pride 2017

This was my third time at London Pride, where I watched the parade and absorbed the atmosphere. It is a wonderful event. I think it is the ambience and the sprawling crowds. One is free to be how they want to be, to wear what want to wear and celebrate who they are. Wider society [...]

Spoons bar crawl

Protest, crawl and ppaaarrttayy

I had a bloody good time. On Saturday 11th February I was scheduled to work and did everything I could to get the day off. I managed it. The week before I had met up with Tom who had said about the idea of doing a Spoons bar crawl. That Saturday was also the day [...]

Everywhere in cities

Two cities

I meant to write this last year. Opps. I never got round to it. I went to Paris on my own back on November 21st. The accompanying photo album was waiting on my desktop to be uploaded here along with an article. Then it went to the front of the queue. It was joined by [...]

Thousands of people lined the streets of Whitehall to voice their opinions. This was in response to Trumps executive ordering banning the entry into the US from 7 Muslim majority countries. It [...]

Happy New Year everyone! 2016 was a pretty great year for me. A huge thank you to everyone who made it wonderful. Life can be taken so fast so it’s important to grasp it and enjoy it. Live it! Carpe diem. YOLO. I shall make 2017 a special one. The plans on how to do [...]

Me, Jemima and Giles

Consecutive weekends and coincidences

I meant to finish and publish this piece soon after the 2nd October.  It is now November 10th.  Ouch.  I kept putting off finishing it and eventually it fell down my to-do list and almost fell off.  Ohhhh.   I thought to myself as I began composing this post over a month ago, that you [...]

In G-A-Y

London night out

A few weeks ago, on Friday 26th August I went for my first ever proper night out in London and I LOVED it. Firstly I met Seb at around 12.30pm in St. Pancras. We walked along to our hotel in Euston. After a rest break, we left and cycled down to The Shard. Since its [...]

Now can you see me?

World Naked Bike Ride 2016

I recently took off my clothes and rode a bicycle around London for my third World Naked Bike Ride. It has now become an annual event and one which I would not miss. The event is a series of protests and one of making statements. It calls on society to reduce its reliance on cars [...]
