Well, it was wet again today, so we left the climbing gear in the van and climbed Tryfan via the north ridge and down via Bwlch Tryfan and Llyn Bochllwyd. Proper rain saw us wet through to our pants but that s just part of the adventure

Wet and High Adventures Long Term Instructor Development Course. The forecast was for rain but it didn't appear as bad as expected so we headed to Tryfan Bach to get some routes done. Andy was looking to lead some routes. We climbed a number of routes from Diff to Severe and had a few small rain showers. That is until our last route when it came down with vengeance and soaked us completely on the top pitch.

I have just returned into Port Ghalib after a great week at sea on Red Sea Adventurer on a Wet and High Adventures trip. This trip took us to St Johns and Fury Shoals as well as dives at Elphinstone.
We saw Oceanic Whitetip Sharks, a Whale Shark, Dolphin, Turtles and all the usual Red Sea Fish.
Thanks to the awesome guides, Elke and Tarek.
There will be a video uploaded once I get home in a few days

This weekend I have been at The Overland Event in Oxfordshire. This is a weekend gathering for Adventure Motorcyclists interested in overland travel. There was a large variety of speakers and a number of manufacturers present which made for a good informative weekend. Even the wet weather didn't cause a problem as there was plenty of cover available.
I grabbed the chance to test drive the Triumph Tiger Explorer XCx (low seat version). Yep, Triumph are making a full size adventure bike for short people :-) This is the first 1200cc bike I have ever been able to get both feet down.
