if you head about 30 miles east from my house, you can camp on these semi-private dunes and watch wild ponies roam the wetlands and beaches

:D Kay...that's how I feel about the ponies. people FREAK OUT when i tell them they exist, but mostly they're a nuisance when you want to camp. they try to eat paper towels and bags of charcoal...anything not nailed down inside your tent! then if you try to confront one, say a single pony who saunters into your campsite in the middle of the night to eat your napkins, suddenly he calls 5 of his buddies out of the bushes to surround and intimidate you! giant out of control rabbits is all they are....lol....

Hey guys. I live in northern Tanzania in a village called Usa River. It's a pretty relaxed kind of place!

Image

This bridge is near my house and it's about a 25ft drop. Not fun at all.

Image

Whipped my phone out to capture a nice view of Mt. Kilimanjaro when I arrived at work one morning. I live in the shadow of an active volcano called Mt. Meru which stands around 5,600m/15,000ft. On a nice, clear morning when you can see both Meru and Kili, you have no choice but to take a moment to admire their magnificence.

Image

The disused railway track. Some of the cast iron fittings were made not far from my home in England. The buildings on the right are the old train station. People live in them now.

Image

Shoe shopping Maasai style.

Image

I was driving home after a stay in the Serengeti and had to pull over to get a few shots of these Wildebeest. This shot was taken near to Oldupai Gorge, where fossils of human ancestors ranging from 1.9 million years ago to around 17,000 million years ago have been discovered.

Educator yes...the Portland School District
Multi-tasker-who wouldn't want that :D

I think surrounding counties might be even easier to find work. Most of my teachers from High School are now teaching in Portland...so I'm guessing it's a good market???

The only problem I can see there is that I'm English. Not sure how much demand there would be for a foreign teacher. I'd love to move up there though. It really does look incredible.

Here are some pictures of my hometown, Chester in the north of the UK. It was founded 2000 years ago as a Roman fortress and is full of history.

Image

That's the Eastgate Clock which was erected to celebrate Queen Victoria's 60th year on the throne.

Image

This is the view off the right-hand side of the bridge with the clock shown above. As you can see, Chester is a very beautiful old city with a lot of preserved buildings. It hasn't changed much in the last 500 years.

Image

Now here is Chester Cross. In the middle there is Chester High Cross which was built in 1476. It was torn down in 1646 during the Civil War but the head and base were saved so they're still original. You can see the unique split-level street that we call 'the Rows'. One of my favourite things to do there is see this guy:

Image

HEAR YE! HEAR YE! Yes, we do have an official Town Crier!

Image

This is the wonderful Chester Cathedral. There has been a site of Christian worship there since the late Roman period. There was a church on the site throughout the Dark Ages but the cathedral itself was first constructed in 1097. It's an incredible place to walk around and I love sitting in the courtyard imagining the monks and abbots waling around there back when it was a monastery/abbey.

Image

Here's the remains of the Roman Amphitheatre. This was always a great lace to meet up with friends, drink beer and smoke a joint or two.

Image

And finally, being a fort, Chester was surrounded by walls on all four sides (the original city was shaped like a playing card. Whilst the walls have been damaged and repaired multiple times over their history (you can see where cannonballs have broken through, for example), they're still standing and going for a walk around the walls is still a favourite pastime of mine.

So there you have it. Chester. It's awesome! As a bonus though, here is a photo of one of my favourite places to spend a day: Beeston Castle. Built in the 1220s but demolished in 1646 during the English Civil War.
