5.0 out of 5 stars Certainly inspires me!, 12 Jun 2014

Alastair has a knack of encouraging without chastising and a microadventure is the perfect answer for those who just don't have the time/money/energy to take on a full blown adventure.

An adventure for 21st century people!

Great map which sits on my study wall.
Very clear and nice muted colours - other UK maps seem to have the bright, garish colour schemes. This one is just right!

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic bag!, 27 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I use this for my job as a secondary school teacher to carry several A4 sized diaries, planners and my ipad into work each day. I aslo bring work home for me such as 35 A5 and sometimes the same number of A4 exercise books for marking. These all fit comfortable within the 4 zipped compartments.
The bag is roomy inside, looks good and feels strong enough to last me for a couple of years yet!
Very please with this and well worth buying.


Falling Uphill: Dreams for the Young Adventurer and the Young at Heart
Falling Uphill: Dreams for the Young Adventurer and the Young at Heart
by Scott Stoll
Edition: Paperback
Price: 7.45

4.0 out of 5 stars Slow start but stick with it, 18 Sep 2013
The cycling quest undertaken by Scott seems incredible by us mere mortals and the sheer distances he covers go far, far beyond any journey we can even dream about!
The book itself starts off quite slow and I came very close to putting the book back on the shelf several times.
I struggled with the way the stories arose - not chronologically at all.
I continued however and started to get accustomed to the way Scott writes and actually quite enjoyed the book in the end.
Like cycling and/or travel then you'll enjoy this tome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just the job, 1 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was looking for a camera bag that didn't look like a camera bag.
Wasn't fussed about the material but wanted something that would keep my camera (eos 500) and zoom lens safe and secure.
This bag does just that - I'm chuffed with it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Taut thriller, 28 Oct 2012
This review is from: Texas Killing Fields [DVD] (DVD)
Some poorer reviews nearly put me off this film - don't despair.
This is a well acted and sometimes pretty scary thriller. The storyline develops well and the killing fields of texas are an added assett. I'd never heard about this area of the USA and it brings to mind the Bayou and other less-salubrious cultures of the country.
A good, intelligent and fast moving film which is well worth watching.
