Cricket on holiday

What can you do when you want to watch how England are getting on against India via the sky go app but you’re out of the country so can’t watch “normally” due to copy protection?

Simple, fire up a personal VPN (that uses your home connection avoiding the costs of a third party, after all you’re already paying for the electricity) and normal service is restored! On a side note, this has the potential to be a very long, attritional but close series; England for me but the Indian top order are a delight to watch as they’re all stroke players.

Oh and sign me up for the James Anderson batting master class!

Answers on the back of a postcard care of trial and error I think, so watch this space

Derby – London – Paris – Barcelona by train

Looks like a journey to add to the bucket list – what a better way to see France/(parts of) Spain quickly other than at 36,000 feet!
