Stuff I like:
- Running, cycling and swimming. I'm signed up for the Edinburgh Marathon in May, the Kelso sprint triathlon in August and the Gullane Beach Olympic-distance triathlon in September.
- Books. As many books as possible. Especially
19th century novels (preferably by dour
consumptive women or Trollope) and history (but not historical
fiction, which is mostly very bad). Or
poetry. Or anything really, except chick lit
or sci fi.
- Travelling. Especially for a long time with not
very much money. Especially overland trips
such as this trip and this trip (earlier trips not yet digitised). Especially to places
where I don't speak the language (which, come
to think of it, is pretty much everywhere). This is absolutely my favourite
- Having people round for dinner, going to the
pub and generally social occasions.
