Shepherds, bears & boy did we get lost

One of a lot

Wympole & Wratsworth

Lost Lost Timmy and Gingers fault!

Our little trip to Romania started off in the Hotel Concrete! actually it was a very smart hotel made of, yes concrete, well recommended. Then our mini bus we hired arrived with two young Romania ladies, Timmy and Ginger who were going to take us to Prince Charles holiday pad in the Carpathian mountains. Oh dear after a two-hour drive we were lost and the only way to the other side of the mountain to get to Prince Charles small farm was to negotiate the mountains following forestry tracks in a minibus!!!!!!!! Best part of this saga for me was my role in becoming the new rally driver of the minibus, yippee what a drive. Must have driven 10-15km over the mountain not really knowing where we were going it was a huge space and no one to ask directions.

About Sadeik

You may ask why "Sadeik" well it means friend in arabic. Worked in Jordan a lot doing tree surgery you see. I have worked in forestry since I left school with a two years in Telecom. Went back to forestry and tree surgery as it may not have paid as much but was far more interesting and dangerous. Spent a lot of years mountaineering, caving and canoeing too. At 29 I went to Bangor University to study Forestry and soil science then did an MSc in Water engineering all very interesting. By a quirk of fate in 1995 ended up helping sort out the woodland and park at Wimpole, funny thing was then I only intended to stay six months or so, but 18 years later I'm still here learning all the time. That's the best bit, if I wasn't able to learn something new every year I would not have stayed and as you get older you realise that the grass is not so green in the next field after all. In fact my patch is getting greener while much of the rest is getting browner.
