Tiptoe through ...
..the tulips are changing as I ride further north, with longer stems and a wider variety of colours, though still smaller and more flared (and prettier) than the ones I am used to at home. Of course the excitement of finding different colours in the monotony of the steppe calls for a proliferation of tulip photos!
These lovely blood red tulips appeared to the north of Shalkar.
Rowena and Bolashak praying to Mecca? No - taking yet more photos of tulips.
Spent most of childhood living in Malaya before returning to school in London. Taught for ten years then moved back to Welsh roots to raise sheep, ponies and young family. Married with 3 children. I am raising money through the ride for my husband Iestyn Thomas's charity Challenge Aid www.challengeaid.org which raises money for disadvantaged children worldwide through exercise. I breed ponies under the Cwrtycadno prefix see www.cwrtycadno.com
