Conkers to you mate!


Getting closer to home the scenery has been gradually getting more familiar. The flora and fauna are more like what I’m used to, weeping willow trees, larches and silver birches etc., rather than the evergreens in the far East. The autumn colours are just starting to come out too.

This morning I saw a couple of conkers. I haven’t seen those for a few years and I got a real pang of nostalgia! They’re such petty things when they’re shiny and new.

The sky is looking more familiar too. The vapour trails of passenger jets have returned, they’ve been absent for a long time. I didn’t necessarily miss them, but it’s nice to have them back!


About Sophie Whiptank - aka Bart

I'm just a bloke doing some stuff, the more interesting bits I post on my blog. Scroll down far enough and you'll see me riding from Melbourne Australia to Birmingham, England in 2014. But now I'm working on another project, a single cylinder motorbike engine at 2750cc!
