For our main holiday this year we decided to go to Thailand, as I had never been, and K hadn't been for 20 years or so.

We spent a couple of nights in Bangkok, 5 days in Chiang Mai, then chilled out on Mai Khao beach for a week before heading home.

For Easter, 2014, K and I went to Amsterdam. We spent 4 days wandering the streets, having drinks in cafes, and poking around a couple museums. We also spent a day at the Keukenhof, where I went a bit mad with the tulip photos.

Saturday was a sunny, crisp day, quite rare for this winter, and I found myself with a couple hours to kill in North Nibley, so I went for a walk on the hill above the village.

The tower in the pictures is the Tyndale Monument, raised in honour of William Tyndale. Also a nice place for a few photos!


Crumpler Light Delight

Crumpler Light Delight:

I have been looking for a good camera backpack for a while, and have tried quite a few different bags over the years, all of which have had their problems. My main issue has always been that camera bags seem to be built more for the enthusiast who wants to travel with 2 bodies and 500 spare lenses and nothing else, rather than someone who likes to travel light with just a body and a couple of lenses, but also needs plenty of room for everything else they may be carrying: a spare fleece or a waterproof, and a map as a minimum.

I got the Crumpler Light Delight as a bag to use for my new camera (Fujifilm X-E2) on a recent 2 week motorbike trip around Belize. The base (camera section) is quickly accessible and quite sturdy with a couple of Velcro dividers in, which took my camera (with the 18-55mm lens attached)  and it’s associated equipment (spare memory cards, spare battery, cleaning equipment and charger), with enough room for another lens when I get one. For this trip that space was taken by a small first aid kit. The top section fitted in maps, a mobile phone, a couple of changes of socks and underwear, a long sleeved shirt, a lightweight waterproof, suncream, insect repellent, sunglasses, a bottle of water and essential documents. It was a tight fit, and I had to travel lighter than I might have wished on occasion, but I got in everything I needed.
