I haven't really wandered far of late but hey, that's all going to change over the next few weeks!! But until then I thought I could fill you in a little on the town where I live!! Dundee is on the east coast of Scotland at the mouth of the River Tay, about an hour north of Edinburgh. It has the most beautiful location and whilst the city itself is not without it's problems - it sure manages to get a grip on you. Many of my friends who arrived for a couple of years have been trapped within it's black hole (me too of course!!) It was once famous for jute, jam and journalism (home of the Beano and Dennis the Menace and marmalade!) but now more so for biotechnology and computer games. Nearby is the beautiful Tentsmuir Beach, the town of St Andrews with the oldest university in Scotland (opened in 1413!) and the Angus Glens - plenty of places to take part in outdoor activities!
But just to remind you that I live in a city (albeit a small one) here's a picture of my favourite view in the City at the moment - the majestic urban windmills slowly turning and generating green energy for a local factory.
Today I was also taking part in the Race for Life in Camperdown Park - 3500 women running or walking 5km (3.2 miles) to raise money for Cancer Research. Just one of hundreds of Race for Life events across the UK this summer. I ran my 3.2 miles in 28 minutes which I was pleased with!!
