A pensive David contemplating where he might go and write about next. Love the moustache & leather jacket! Perhaps it will be a motor bike trip around South America?!

Steady on Mr Camel…love the old black & white pics – you look very relaxed up there David!

Ahh yes those early memorable biking holidays always ended up at a pub…

…and yes those marvellous family walking holidays too…Charlotte by his side always ready to help out

Relaxing at the beach house in Suffolk… or are you in fact somewhere exotic in New Zealand? Perhaps a bach on the Coromandel David?!

Now where are those elephants? Botswana 2011

Family sailing holiday in Greece or Turkey….but hey, you just can’t beat a decent cup of PG Tips first thing before that early morning swim!
