Paddling the Nile
The first ever paddle down the Blue Nile from source to sea. 5,000km through wild rapids, war zones, crocodile and hippo infested waters, disease, terrorists, guns, arrests; the works...
Newly married amongst the neon glow and dumpling vendors as we bumble our way trying to figure out the world's most populous nation at this exciting time in it's history...
The Great Canadian Bike Trek
23 years old and naive, I set off in the middle of Canada's barbaric winter perched on a woolskin seat-cover peddling solo from one side of Canada to the other...
Four five months paddling down the River Nile, I just couldn’t get the Pink Floyd classic The Nile Song lyrics out of my head. I wouldn’t normally be one to belt out psychedelic rock music, but I guess singing it took me to a comfortable place when everything else seemed so crazy.
For all the times I sang The Nile Song it would be rude not to include Roger Water’s lyrics on my site. In 1969 when David Gilmour played guitar and sang for the Soundtrack from the Film and More recording, he wouldn’t have thought it would be sung to crocodiles on the Nile 36 years later. Enjoy, I did!
I was standing by the Nile
When I saw the lady smile
I would take her out for a while
For a while
Oh, my tears wept like a child
How her golden hair was blowing wild
Then she spread her wings to fly
For to fly
Soaring high above the breezes
Going always where she pleases
She will make it to the islands in the sun
I will follow in her shadow
As I watch her from my window
One day I will catch her eye
She is calling from the deep
Summoning my soul to endless sleep
She is bound to drag me down
Drag me down
