I have stuck my mobile phone out on the windowsill of my hotel room and made it ‘do wi-fi’ and here I am; on my laptop, online in the middle of the Lake District! I’m in the rainiest county in England and England is the raniest nation in… probably the world, and yet the sun is shining, the skies are blue and it looks set to stay that way – amazing!
As well as the compact flash cards I am filling at a rate of knots, I have a whole stack of Polaroids (oh, they look amazing – Polaroid film was made for this landscape), rolls and rolls of film and eyeballs full of wonderful sights – the reason I wanted to get online so badly though was to share my latest piece of writing that has been published in the guardian today!
The Lake District; it’s very hilly, they make amazing gingerbread and there are sheep EVERYWHERE!
Wish you were here.
