“It’s impossible to look down on Earth from space and not be mesmerised by the fragile beauty of our planet.”


“Don’t let anybody tell you that you can’t do something you’ve set your heart on.”


“Did spaceflight change my perspective? Absolutely. Did it change me as much as becoming a father did? Not even close.”


“Who knows where the inspiration that will carry someone onward for the rest of their life may come from? The possibilities are limitless.”

Loving the fresh autumn sunshine. Headed to #Dublin today but time for a quick blast on this beauty. Thanks @UKTriumph for letting me try out the Tiger 1200 Rally Pro - what a bike!

Today is the Autumnal Equinox when the Sun is exactly above the Equator & day & night are of equal length.

I love this time of year, it’s a great time to be outside making the most of the daylight & stable weather before winter comes.
