No trousers on the tube 2017

Back on Sunday 8th January, I took part in the no trouser on the tube event. It started in New York in 2002.  It has continued every year over there and since spread across the world.  Each year, around this time, the “no pants subway ride” as it is known in the states occurs.  There’d […]

Happy New Year 2017! 

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 […]

Movember 2016’s efforts

For a total of 28 days I worked hard.  Very hard.  I grew this beauty.  Ummmm yeah. But I had to cut it short. Here’s a short YouTube video I have made: Samuel x

Newcastle a few weeks ago

For too long it has been the same; I go to a few different places and become comfortable with the familiarity.  I frequent them, have a great time as always but do not seek anything new. I decided to change that.  I wanted to go somewhere different.  In conjunction with my friend Seb, we decided […]

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 […]

Gay night out in Manchester

I am not quite sure how much I managed to miss writing a blog post after my gay night out in Manchester.  It was a moment of brilliance.  How? Anyway, back on August 6th I got the train with Seb to Manchester. After a quick stop off in Nottingham, we arrived late afternoon and walked, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Bicycles, Bins, Bombs and no plan B

Lots of B’s. Bicycling, Bins, Bombs and no plan B. I finally got round to creating the following video. I have a tendency to film everything and anything. On the Sunday evening when I arrived back in Wellingborough the idea of beginning the seemingly humungous task of editing it was daunting. With no one to […]

Doing January

The month of January is about to end; the first month of the year of 2016 gone.  How did that happen?  I’ve “done” January. The year of 2015 was very eventful. But I want to make 2016 even more so.  The first month was a relaxed one, but still quite eventful and now I feel […]

Royal Critical Soho

On Friday I got the train down to London. Every so often, East Midlands Trains sends me via email a £10 money off voucher for any journey to or from London St. Pancras so a return was only £9.10.  I decided I wanted to go exploring and do something different so after arriving in London […]

Notting Hill Carnival

On Monday 31st August, I went to Notting Hill.  It was a wonderful atmosphere. I went down with my sister Tiffany and met my friend Giles Gear, who went with his friend Calum Suggett.  We briefly met my sister’s friend Kiara. Finally have I got around to editing together some footage I shot on the […]

Marx, laugh and Brighton

Hello, Recovering from the tail end of a light cold reminded by an intermittent tickling cough, and listening to the rain as it patters down on my bedroom window, here I reflect on a wonderful few days a week ago. On Tuesday 21st I got the train down to London, bicycle in tow.  From St. […]

Critical Pride

Hello there. Oh, I headed down to London last Friday 25th June. I partook in June 2015’s Critical Mass.  If you have stumbled upon this blog, or have somehow missed the plethora of posts from me about it before, Critical Mass is an assemblage of predominantly cyclists which occurs on the last Friday of every […]

‘Cycling’ holiday

We planned to cycle from Wellingborough to the south coast but we ended up taking our bicycles on the trains.  We had a ‘Cycling’ holiday.  On Wednesday 17th June, Seb and I got the train down to Southampton with a stop off at London St. Pancras and short cycle to Waterloo. In retrospect, I am […]

World Naked Bike Ride 2015

I took part in the World Naked Bike Ride in central London. Yesterday Tom and I met on Blackfriars Bridge, hired our bicycles and headed to Clapham Junction.  Assembling at 2pm, numbers were scarce, so we headed to a lovely little cafe for about 40 minutes.  Back in plenty of time for applying some body […]

Interrailing 2015

Paris, Rome, Venice, Munich, Berlin and Amsterdam. I went travelling from Tuesday 19th May until Thursday 4th June. Here is the main photo album. Over the next few days this will be corrected and padded out with more information.  Photo credits to Seb. Here’s what I got up to in just over two weeks when […]

Anti-Tory Protest?!

On Saturday 9th May  2015 I attended some anti-Tory protests. First of all I met with Akram.  I have known him since 2008 ish time online and this was the first time we met.  We got on really well and I showed him a few sights. After meeting Seb, saying goodbye to Akram and meeting […]

VOTE!

I heard the other day that this is “the most important elections in a generation” but I’m sure I only heard this only five years ago.  Perhaps it is the most important in one election cycle or generation.  Nevertheless, I think all elections are important and it is imperative that you cast your vote today. […]

We were about to climb!

Big Ben tour

Yesterday (Thursday) my Mum and I went down to London for a  tour of Big Ben.  Amazing!  Stunning. There’s some work happening near to Westminster Bridge and there’s this sign: After passing through airport-style security in the entrance to Portcullis House, we sat and waited for it to begin.  I hadn’t looked into it any […]
