A Break Away

First & foremost I would like to wish everyone a belated Merry Christmas & a prosperous New Year for 2019.

It's been almost a month since my last blog entry as some people had noticed & emailed me asking if everything was OK.

I have to confess, Im fine and that Karen & myself had slipped away for Christmas & New Year in the sun.

With mounting pressures at work & a long year of jobs around the house for both of us we decided to disappear and treat ourselves for Christmas & New Year,  so a few days in Abu Dhabi before boarding a cruise ship and heading to India for the festive period.

Whilst in Abu Dhabi we had the pleasure to visit the Grand Mosque, which was on our bucket list of places to visit, It did not disappoint an absolute stunning place to visit if your ever in that region of the world.

A couple of select pictures from our cruise travels to India & back to the UAE.

The gateway to India located in Mumbai (Bombay)

Your eyes arent playing tricks the tree really is bent one way then back on itself!

The QE2 now a floating hotel in Dubai with the Burj Khalifa in the background

Lots more pictures but I wont bore everyone with the holiday pictures & I hope everyone had a great festive period.  Thanks to the concerned few who emailed me asking if all was OK, I promise I will be back fishing again very soon.


  1. Happy new year and tight lines for 2019.

    The trotting gear been out for the last couple of weeks due to rivers being up and down, now running low and very clear

    1. Happy New year to you also Neil, I honestly haven't seen the state of the rivers yet, Im going to leave it till the weekend & see what happens from there. Tickets all sent off for renewal so restricted on where to go currently.

  2. A happy New Year to you too. Right down to business, there must be some trotting for grayling soon. Regards, Two Terriers John

    1. Cheers John, Im hoping to get the trotting gear out very soon as I never had it out last year at all so need to dust it off & get out for a few hours...watch this space :)
