2021 Goals

I wrote my 2020 Goals in Mid January. Who would know what we would be facing only a few months later. The global pandemic wiped out a load of what we had planned for 2020!! So in writing my 2021 goals what have I thought about? Well some of what we set out to achieve in 2020 actually happened. I didn't list all of my goals in the post but one of the personal goals was getting a promotion at work. That happened in May. Sadly all our travel goals of course went out the window as things shut down. So my 2021 goals are really a sort of 2020.5 or a 2021 "Hybrid". With some carry over from 2020…

Lapland Silverstone

Just before xmas we headed off to Lapland Silverstone. For me (and anyone who knows me) I'm a massive petrol head. The fact that we did Route 66, Indy 500, and multiple other race events should give you this clue! So for the ability to take our own car onto the world famous Silverstone Race Circuit was something that we couldn't turn down. To add even more to this the track was being lit up with lots of lighting and effects. Given that this is the day job and something I'm equally passionate about the whole Lapland experience was like a perfect match!   So one cold December evening we headed off to Silverstone. As we approached the circuit from…

Top 5 Posts of 2020

As part of my 2020 goals I set out to do this blog more than I had in the past! I think I've achieved this. The following, levels of interaction and stats prove this!

RHS Wisley Glow

I've spent my life around lighting and doing events. I don't talk about it much on the blog.However it's a big part of my life and even when I'm on the day "off" I don't mind spending my time looking at lighting either! So when I was asked by my old company if I wanted to see what they had been up to in the run up to Xmas at RHS Wisley Glow 2020 event I jumped at the chance. Making our way down to the RHS you were greeted by the entrance being all lit up. There was the winter feel with small stalls offering things like xmas cheeses, fudge and winter Cider drinks. This year hasn't been one…

Five places that I want to visit off the beaten track…

2020 has been an awful year for travel. If you've read my other posts on some of the plans for this year I'm really sad it's not happening! However it's not all about the usual places to travel to. I've also got a bucket list of the places that perhaps aren't in all the travel guides. There are plenty of reasons behind each one. However here are five places that I want to visit off the beaten track... Officially I've been to North Korea. Well when I say officially I've been into the DMZ area between North and South when I was working in South Korea a few years back. Since then I've been totally fascinated with the country and…
