BECOMING MORE FISH-LIKE & DIVING WITH SHARKS (AS A KID) - SHARM, EGYPT

Around the year 2000 Dad found a new hobbie; Scuba diving. It quickly became the central focus of any free time he had for the next few years, and after some time it lead to stacks of diving equipment around the house, countless weekend diving trips booked and eventually a 15,000 gallon/3m deep diving pond with 50+ fish in our back garden.

Towards the end of '05 Dad paid for Dan & me to start taking lessons. At first I hated it, I think we both did; every Wednesday evening, spending hours reading over theory books and watching horrendously boring tutorial videos in a small musty room on Old Street, knowing you had to come back and do the same routine next week. Nowadays you don't have to do as much theoretical work - it's not fair really.

A much less hairier version on me, learning to dive in '06

THE CLEAN, QUIET CITY OF POT SMOKERS & PROSTITUTES - AMSTERDAM


Before I went to Dam, the only people I knew who had been were the rough kids in school, looking for a place to smoke even more weed then they already did around London. I was never really interested in going, until I came to Uni and met a few others who had been and seen some of their photos. I realised what a beautiful city it was, but it was mainly the architecture and layout of the city that really attracted me.

AFRICAN SAFARI & PARADISE ISLAND - TANZANIA

Taken by Nicole from the other jeep.

- A quick little disclaimery thing; I’ll try and describe the whole trip as best possible, just like I did in the last post about Kili, but no matter how good the pictures or literature, nothing ever compares to the real thing. If you get a chance I’d advise going and doing these things yourselves – experience is key.

THE AFRICAN ROOFTOP; CLIMBING Mt KILIMANJARO - TANZANIA


I've always been an outdoors type of kid, a fat kid who may not have been real energetic when I was younger, but I did love being out and about in the great outdoors nonetheless. I'm a lot older now (and in a lot better shape) so being outdoors has been a lot more fun, especially when I've had one of my dogs with me. Relaxed beach holidays have never been an interest of mine. I've been on a few when I was younger - examples of when my Mum would get her own way. I've always wanted to experience countries I go to on active holidays, rather than visit and relax in them, something I think my Dad got me into when he would get his own way. I always preferred when Dad got his own way.

 Whats up guys! I’m Jamie, a 20 yr old from London and welcome to LifeLogged - a Travel and Lifestyle blog. I’m a pretty rough and ready looking kind of guy, I get called Viking, Jesus, Caveman - that type of thing quite a lot. I don’t mind though, I know my beard is pretty sick.
