About Me/Contact


As a rule I hate these ‘About’ pages but on this occasion I think it is important that I provide some information about me so the blog has some meaning to those who may come across it.

I was made redundant in February 2009 from a job which I had done, with the same company, for nigh on 21 years. I developed an interest in photography in 2001 and now class it as my main hobby and interest. One day I may even be able to make some money out of it but for the meantime I am fuelling this interest by being an active member of the Wrekin Arts photographic Society based in Wellington in Shropshire and the internet based DAPA Group.

I have had numerous sucesses with my photographs being exhibited in countries such as America, Spain, Italy, India, Sweden and Qatar as well as throughout the UK.

A full list of acceptances can be seen here

Currently travelling around Europe with my wife and our dog Jack in our motorhome.

If you would like to contact me then please feel free to comment on one of my blog submissions.

Congratulations on getting this going so quickly – you were only musing over the possibility on Monday! It’s an interesting read and I look forward to keeping abreast of your progress and news as you travel around Europe.

Thanks David. The initial use will be to blog about the Arts Festival which will ease me gently into this new world, however, I can see all kinds of stuff being added as well!

hi Steve,

Thank you for keeping your fascinating blog up to date, its truly wonderful.
I feel like I am there with you at times..and I know what you mean about everything being closed in French towns!! Did my fair share of travelling thru them when kids were little.
Keep blogging!!! I love it. Gives me a little escape from life in dreary ice and snow-bound Leighton Buzzard.
lots of love
ps the photos are magnificent, Olivia is desperate to talk pics with you, she has a new mega professional Canon and is showing real potential.

Hi Steve,

I must say that I am most impressed with the quality of your photography !!!

In my younger years I was very into photography myself, and still have a Canon Eos RT and my trusty old Nikon FM2 hiding in the loft….35mm is so passe these days !

However, once I realised that I had no real talent my interest waned. You, however, have a great eye.

Having looked at your blog, I’ve realised that you are already south of where we will be house-sitting in Eymoutiers….perhaps our paths may cross soon.

We are now in Pego, Spain, but have to head north into france and be in Eymoutiers by Thurs 28th Jan.

Will let you know our route and maybe we can finally actually meet !!?

More soon, Steve & Sonia

Hope some of the information is of use, where are you planning to go?

Just read the ream of emails twixt you and HP.

Don’t you just ‘love’ the set-piece paragraphs and the cosy personalising.

I suggest, with the evidence you already have on file, that you worry not about voiding the warranty and either replace the hard-drive yourself or by a shop.

On your return give HP one chance to reinburse you then issue County Court proceedings (about thirty quid) for recovery of ALL costs.

Worked for me with both Sony and EBuyer when I had similar problem – both resulted in full refunds of over £1000 by return.

SO bl**dy frustrating isn’t it.

Whilst you are in Silves, don’t forget to call into Racal Clube. That is where they hold the Algarve Salon.

Do you think it would still be on Pete? We must have walked past the place today looking at the map. Might have a wander up now and see actually.

Actually, looking at the web site the building we walked past earlier today was the Racal Clube. Closed for renovation at the moment unfortunately. It looks like a converted church, very pretty building. Thanks for the heads up though Pete.

Having taken a bit more of a look through your blog I have to say your photos are really beautiful – they immediately demand attention!
Best of luck.

Hi, will post more details, but briefly, we would appreciate any info relating to long term (maybe full timing abroad) vehicle insurance, seems to be max 30 days on all UK companies, is it easier to insure in France for example or are there UK companies that do it?
Thanks for the Blog, interesting reading.

Try talking to Comfort Insurance, they do full timing insurance but at a premium! Full timing abroad could pose a problem, best of luck with it and thanks for the comment.

Happy Christmas Steve and Lorna, I met you in Alvor, I was on my scooter.
Your blog is really interesting, I’ve enjoyed it reading it very much.
We are coming out on the 27th and if you are around we’ll pop in to say hello.
Stay safe and have a lovely day.

Hi Paul, missed you on the 27th but thanks for the comment and nice to meet you 🙂

Hi Steve, great Blog.
From your experience do you think myself and my girlfriend would get away with wild camping around vernwy in a small tent?

26 03 2013
Steve Green

Can’t see why not, a tent is a little more discreet than a motorhome. I’d wait for fairer weather though!

Hi Steve,
We’ve not stopped our travels as I’m writing this from Spain, but the blogging has stopped unfortunately. Thanks for the comment and I’m glad the information has been of help, though sime of it may be well outdated now.
