I had a fantastic week cycling around the Inner Hebridean Isle of Mull. I love the West Coast of Scotland – rough, tough and beautiful landscapes and wildlife combined with a really arty culture – I had my first sighting of a real iPad in a cafe in Tobemory as well as seeing a Sea Eagle taking a fish back to its nest. The weather was, um, variable – heavy rain when you’re living in the world’s smallest tent is not fun! (see pic right)
On the other hand, pedalling up through a beautiful glen in the sunshine with eagles overhead can’t be beaten. And it was great to practice some camp craft after (too) many years of creature comfort – although I’m still no Ray Mears it has to be said.
Anyway, it is great to be back and I’ve got a full agenda – facilitating a recycling workshop tomorrow, giving a presentation on Sustainability in the Process Industries to IPSE in Newcastle on 8 June and a strategy workshop in London on 10 June. Plus I’m trying to get The Green Executive finished off by the end of June.
