Ian’s Travelblog Adventures 2017- Where on Earth (and beyond!) is ITA going these Days?

It’s time to get organised- if I can find the time that is!

Okay, I will admit the hiking might have seemed to have flown South for the Winter and needs a new GPS system to find its way home again. Not that I’ve given up on it, but time, money (LACK OF BOTH), resources (old boots etc) and work has meant putting updates off time and again, though videos have been pretty-well kept updated, it’s been a nightmare, not quite of Elm Street-proportions, but close enough!

So, I merged both Tiglet’s Travels and ITA last year, creating ‘Tigletverse Travel and Photography’, with one Facebook page (please Like!) and not much up on Pinterest recently. The Blog/Storysite badly needs updating, but I thin I may have found a better page/platform…

Nothing interesting happened here today

CnKlJGwXEAAg6TyWell, I think so, honest!

Anyway, School’s out and the Summer is here, so there’s a little interesting nugget for you! How do you define ‘interesting’ anyway? Depends on your perspective I suppose. And I do have a very broad perspective, even if I do say so myself.

I know there has been a lamentable and deplorable lack of updates/reviews/travels/events and other stuff (apart from IW- which has two episodes to go!) So this summer I’ll be catching up and preparing for my 6th Bloggerversary!!!

Yep- that’s right, six years I’ve been doing this, so it’s time to get organised and have a revamp, a change, something new, a bit of re-branding maybe.

I was hoping to go to Wales, but catching a cold and snivelling all over the place kicked that plan out of the stratosphere. I had googled ‘how to get over a cold in 24 hours’…

The Mona Lisa Twins- California Dreaming

Mona lisa twins at bw16I have to admit that when I was a Student, I never really spent much time down in the Cavern Quarter on Mathew Street, the birthplace of the Beatles and where many, many bands have played over the years.

It might be hard to believe, with all the videos I’ve made of The Mona Lisa Twins, a few other bands and Beatleweek last summer, plus all the footage that didn’t get edited or shared on Youtube or Facebook or the blog.

Last summer I did let my inner Beatlemaniac out into the street to play, as well as getting into a 60’s groove, though I know I really need to get a new record player, get Hard Day’s Night and the best of the Beachboys down from the loft and repair a few scratches, oh yes- Vinyl will come back soon!

In the meantime- this short, three track album gives…

Ian’s Travelblog Adventures- Hadlow Road along the Wirral Way

Standard

DSCF0202Hadlow Road Train Station is a disused station perfectly preserved as a museum along the Wirral Way, which was the main line between Hooton and West Kirby, back in the day.

I stumbled upon it when I hiked along the whole of the WW back in 2012, but this was first time I got the chance to video it.

It is a nice stroll from Hooton, but took about 40 mins, rather than the 20 mins I thought it would take!

I did a bit of filming for the next episode of Dr Rrr! And luckily found a person who took a couple of shots of me as well, but was a nice quiet morning amble.

I couldn’t find an official website, but Neston has a section that gives all the details-

Welcome to the Year of the Monkey!

Happy Year of the Monkey!!

2016-year-of-the-monkey

I felt a definite buzz as I headed into Liverpool for my first ever Chinese New Year yesterday.

I guess it’s one of those things that I kept missing or putting off, but ever since October, when I began listening/watching Chinese/Taiwanese Artists like GEM and Mayday, it’s been creeping up slowly, but I finally made it!

It helps that I’ve been playing Dynasty Warriors 2 and 3 on the PS2, brushing up on Three kingdoms history, though it’s a bit complex, like Chinese Language, as it was Autumn 2013 I thought of learning Chinese, but found that there are several variants, and that Mandarin and Cantonese are both complex and well-complicated to learn, it isn’t just a matter of saying ‘Ni Hao’ and learning conversational Chinese, but there are Min, Wu, Hakka and other variations to boggle me! Watch this video and you’ll see what…
