I got it from my Dad and he still continues entering competitions to this day. Back in those days it was a case of entering by sending...

I have been to Tenerife twice. The first time for four months, the second for just a week. The first time I went I was looking for a job as it was my first port of call on what I hoped would be a round the world trip. If I didn’t get a job I’d […]
