Autumn colours

(Two entries in one day? Surely not!)

Inside the Great Conservatory

A beautiful afternoon for wandering around Syon Park, and another item ticked off the list. We arrived just in time for the last guided walk around the grounds, given by Syon’s head gardener, who had an amusingly dry manner and obviously knew more about plants than I could ever hope to! Quite inspiring and well worth the couple of quid admission.

Lunch time walk

Guards Club Bridge

October is good for taking photos. Today I spent my lunch break wandering around a tiny little wooded island in the middle of the Thames. Apparently not working in Central London has some pluses, after all :-).

168

I’ve uploaded a ton more photos from Sydney, Melbourne, the Radio 1 Athlete gig and Dan’s Birthday to the Flikr page. The Thailand photos can wait til another time, as can a picture of me to add to my profile.

Apparently I have 168 photos up there now – not bad for a critic, eh? Either I’m going to have to upgrade soon or else progress on the new “regenero-wabson” is going to have to be speeded up…

Update: Did I mention I’m in London this weekend? Call me if you want to meet up! 🙂

The day I met Jo Whiley

Radio 1 came to Northampton today, in the shape of Jo Whiley and her crew and staged an intimate gig at the Picturedrome just up the road from here, featuring Athlete. Me and Dave went along to get tickets from Market Square where they were giving them out beforehand and I ended up on the radio talking to Jo.

Athlete’s performance was top-notch – possibly the best gig I’ve ever been to, in fact. Tomorrow I’m off to Virgin to buy a copy of Tourist. This is what music is all about!

Sadly Harold wasn’t in!

Thai Noodles

Whenever you’re stuck for somewhere to eat in a random place around the world, you can always trust the Rough Guide to locate a suitably unique establishment for you.

So today the mental preparations for Bangkok began with the eating of vegetable and tofu Thai noodles down a small side street in Byron Bay. I wish I could stay here for longer, and I also wish that I’d remembered to take the photo before I started eating the darned food.

Yippee for cybercafes that let you access the contents of your memory cards while you surf though! This place is on the ball.

Sydney

It had to be done really, didn’t it?

Me in front of Sydney Opera House

Tomorrow morning I fly up to Cairns and the hot and wet conditions in Northern Queensland – very different from Sydney at the moment, which continues to creep into Spring.

More blog (and email) updates to follow, I promise!
