After a 3.5 hour ride in the cold winter rain, I have been able to update my Castelli CW.3.0 Gloves Review to include their waterproofing credentials: http://www.chirundu.com/cycling/castelli-cw-3-0-gloves-review/ #cycling #Castelli +CastelliCycling RaceWear

Was up early this morning & noticed the almost full moon outside my window, so quickly took a couple of photos through a pair of #Celestron Echelon 20x70 #Binoculars with my phone using the Carson Universal optics adapter. The full review of which I wrote here: http://www.bestbinocularsreviews.com/blog/carson-hookupz-universal-smartphone-optics-adapter-review-11/ - I don't think that they are too bad for a first try and am sure that with a better photo app on my phone, time and some more practice, they will get better still. +CarsonOptical +Celestron  #digibinning   #digiscoping

Along with a pair of #Binoculars, #Minox  UK have very kindly sent me the MINOX ACX 101 HD Action Camera to test & #Review

Initially I have mounted it onto my #Lazer  #helmet but will also try it on my stem & handlebars on future rides. #cycling #actioncamera   +Lazer Sport NV   +MINOX Webcasts

Owner Best Binocular Reviews, Ex safari guide, cyclist now living in France/Zimbabwe
Introduction
I currently live in the South of France, but was born and grew up in Zimbabwe. I am passionate about wildlife, travel and am a keen bird and wildlife photographer. 

I am also  a qualified Field Guide (safari guide) and have worked on and managed safari lodges in South Africa. 

I own and run Best Binocular Reviews, Chirundu.comthe Safari Holiday Guide and a few others that do their best to keep me behind a desk, but am always looking for an excuse to get back into the bush.

Most importantly - I am the husband to my beautiful wife, Sharon and father to my fantastic daughter Kara.

Great little restaurant, we had a very good 3 & 4 course fixed price lunch - the food was good to very good, the interior was nice and cosy, but as it was a nice day, we sat out on the front terrace which was very pleasant.

We had some great seafood as well as a good steak and peri-peri chicken all in a beautiful old house. Also had a cracking Irish Coffie to finish with. Highly reccommend.
