Thought for a friend

July 5th, 2011


Nelson cathedral. Inspired by Ute I’d ridden with back in Germany. Together with her husband Manfred. She’d lit a candle in Regensburg cathedral. For safe travels. I’d followed suit. But today wasn’t quite the same. Lighting one for a friend. Hers a different journey. Spirited fight against an aggressive cancer.



Nelson City

July 4th, 2011


Today’s Kiwese word or phrase: "Frugget". Small warship

Nelson, I’d discovered, was a city. Not a big one mind. But it did have a cathedral. Nor was it the smallest of cities. Certainly bigger than St Davids in Wales. But a city nevertheless. A few notable visitors over the years. His Royal Highness The Duke of York. October 2005. Coincidentally Chairman of The Outward Bound Trust’s Trustees.
