Wye did we avoid the Wye Valley?

Jess and me have been climbing together for nearly ten years and although there has been ample opportunity to climb at the Wye Valley, we have avoided it. I know the main reason is that everyone we talk to about it is quite negative about things, a common phrase I've heard is that people 'don't... Continue Reading →

OFD Upper

It has taken me so long to write about this weekend caving that I've already posted about our first day in Dan-yr-Ogaf, whilst I catch up with writing. To be honest I've had a couple of lazy week/weekends and therefore should have had these posted weeks ago, but for some reason I've not got round... Continue Reading →

GB Cave… finally

So a few years ago we went caving with our friend Tim and last weekend we picked up where we left off! Quite a gap between the trips, but we have been somewhat busy!! When we stopped caving a few years ago, we had done quite a few trips to Swildons and Fairy Cave that... Continue Reading →

Scuba Diving Guide Experiences

It has taken me a long while, to get around to writing this article. Partly due to the motivation to write about past life experiences, when my current experiences are less than interesting! It’s fair to say that my time as a scuba diving guide was for the most part fantastic. The opportunity to get... Continue Reading →
