Revisiting the Bucket List

I've reviewed my 'Bucket List' now that I've ticked off a few items, and decided to add a few more for good measure.

With the sand between my toes…

I'm off to Sitges to celebrate Pride, get some sun and enjoy lolling around naked on the beach for the weekend...

Surviving my first WNBR

Taking part in my first ever World Naked Bike Ride was exhilarating, freezing and hilarious...

WNBR: Another one for the bucket list?

Next Saturday, London sees its very own WNBR: World Naked Bike Ride. And I'm taking part. What?! Well, it's been on my bucket list for some time, but I've either been out of the country for work or holidays when it's taken place for the last few years. Next weekend, I'm actually in London. And ...

The tyranny of body hair

Surviving my first German sauna

I spent an exceedingly pleasant birthday weekend in Berlin last week. Friday morning to Monday evening was not nearly enough to take in the whole experience, but despite historic sites all around me, I spent more time in the sauna than any other place. Let's rewind. We were staying in the Hilton, which has a ...

Winter blues: Craving the sun on my skin

Right now, I'm looking back on December a little wistfully. According to my (unreliable) memory, December 2016 was a lot milder and drier than January 2017. The last couple of weeks in London have featured some really bone-chilling weather and, despite the facts of the matter, I don't see any longer 'stretch' in the evenings. ...
