These Old Shoes

My old trainers

I can’t help but feel that this blog is getting a little self-involved. So instead I want to talk not about me, but a pair of old trainers, that after 3 years of loyal service are going into retirement.

I wouldn’t ordinarily blog about items of clothing, but I feel a certain affection for these old friends. You see, they have enjoyed quite a journey during their lifetime, traveling further than any of their predecessors.



With quick stops of at:

  • Bangkok, Thailand
  • Dubai, UAE
  • Washington DC, USA

Okay, I admit it. This is a veiled attempt to again talk about me! I just find it fascinating that the last three years have seen me travel much further than I ever have before, yet on the grand scale of things there is still so much more to see.

My new trainers have a lot to live up to.
