WINTER SUN

Winter is overrated. Punctures, wind, rain. Misery. And all for what?

This year Tom decided to skip the month of November entirely and decamp to Javea on the Costa Blanca. Home to expats, cheap chorizo and many big mountains. He sent us back some photos of the trip – and yes, those ones of him were shot with a self-timer. The sad bastard.
