Arnos Vale Cemetery

1 November 2013:  We went for a walk in Arnos Vale Cemetery in Bristol yesterday – it was a glorious Autumn day, perfect for a walk around the 42 acre site.  I love the way the old gravestones are positioned on the banks of a wooded hills and the way the trees and wildlife are taking over.  Cemeteries and graveyards are some of my favourite places to visit and we always make a point of seeking them out wherever we go.

The Enchanted Forest of Oma

June 2013: We’ve just got back from a road trip along the northern coast of Spain and up the Atlantic coast of France in our campervan.  Whilst in the Basque region of Spain we visited the Enchanted Forest of Oma.  These decorated trees were created by Spanish artist Agustín Ibarrola in 1984, although I believe some of the trees were painted more recently.  It was a bit of a hike in the hot sunshine, but it was well worth the effort.

Northern California: Road Trip

March 2013: I’ve just flown back from six days working with the Monterey Symphony in California to launch Play Me, I’m Yours Street Pianos across Monterey County – great fun!  After two days hard work, I had two rest days before flying back to Bristol.  I spent one day exploring Carmel-on-sea and driving around 17 Mile Drive round the coast line around the famous Pebble Beach Golf Course and my last day driving along Highway 1 along the Pacific Coast in an area known as The Big Sur – spectacular scenery!
