And so here we are, three days in and it’s been fun. Cold but fun. I’ve started to realise how imperative to this project the people who I meet along the way are going to be – they’ve provided me with knowledge, wisdom and fundamentally, insight into this incredible landscape.
I’ve been blessed with glorious sunshine (the majority of the time) which has added to the romance of this beautiful country. Unfortunately my heater broke on the second night BUT thankfully a nomination for the Fujifilm Distinctions Awards sees my somewhat imminent return to London and thus an opportunity to pick up my back-up sleeping bag and some additional supplies.
I jump on board the Caledonian Sleeper tonight to arrive in London bright-eyed and bushy-tailed for the award ceremony tomorrow evening before jumping back on board the sleeper tomorrow night to continue the project. I’ll let you know the outcome of the awards but if you’re in London be sure to check out the exhibition at Bayeux, 78 Newman Street, London, W1T 3EP.
In the meantime, here’s my truck looking much more at home than in the streets of East London – if you look closely you’ll notice she’s even smiling!
