Hello. So this is my blog and so this page shall be one of those ‘written in third person’ bios. So let’s get on with that.
“Gura Hamu was born and raised in the sunny vacation town* of Grimsby on the north coast of England. As soon as was practical, he left to pursue a life of accidentally being in nice places and meeting good people whilst earning money through various forms of engineering and at one point teaching English. For a long time now he’s been based in Japan for reasons he’s forgotten and spends as much time as he can on family, motorcycling, snowboarding, writing or otherwise being outside. Most things can often be done outside if needs be.”Me
OK, well that’s that. As for this site, it’s been going for a while now, since February 2003 in fact, across various publishing platforms, and before that, I had an old school hand crafted ‘home page’ which I nurtured from 1996 to 2008 before putting it out to pasture and then somewhat resurrecting it for more technical and indoor activities. As time passes, I mark more of the older posts here as private to help keep the web less cluttered.

The phrase ‘nani kore’ means ‘what’s this?’, and its something I still say a lot apparently.
* There’s a good chance I couldn’t defend this statement in court.
