Accommodation on the NC500

Pete and I spent a week driving around the Highlands the first week of August and these are the seven places we stayed along the NC500 route. I booked the first four nights up the east coast and Pete chose the three places on the west side.

Dinner at Alchemilla

A couple of weeks ago I went and visited my mate Ben (previously featured in the kitesurfing post) down in Nottingham. I came from work in the Yorkshire Dales and had a bit of FOMO because my boss had been to a great tasting menu dinner and was raving about it. I wanted that, so I did some research on fine dining in Nottingham and convinced Ben we should go to Alchemilla (it didn’t take much convincing). We also invited Ben’s mate Rob – he’s coming kitesurfing with us in September – and we booked around a week in advance. Luckily they had availability during my stay. We had to give about 3 days notice for dietary requirements and 24 hours for disabled access (you can kind of see the ramp in the background of this photo).

Stuck in Doha

Budaful Budapest

Well I’m shit at blogging, last one was from July! My bad! Finally back at it with this blog about my trip to Budapest in November. 

Remember my mate Dan from the Colorado Ski Trip and from last year’s trip to Warsaw? If you don’t remember (and can’t be bothered looking at the previous posts) Dan is a full time wheelchair user with a spinal injury (paraplegic).  He’s also my travel buddy.

I’ve just gotten back from an amazing week on the island of Lemnos, Greece.

If you’ve been a long term reader of my blog, you may remember my mate Ben from my 2017 Colorado Ski Trip. He’s been on a couple of trips kitesurfing trips with Access Adventures but now it was time to go solo! And invite me along of course.
