We've done it again! This time we biked from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel, but they still don't have a dedicated Stroke Unit to cope with this devastating condition and major cause of death. Click here to find out more, and please help this fantastic cause. Thanks!

Virtual Northern Ireland


Have you ever wanted to visit Northern Ireland, but haven't got around to it yet? Now you can get a feel for it in #VR prior to booking your trip(s).

VR panorama: Waterfront Hall & Law Courts, Oxford St, Belfast. *Doesn't lead to Oxford.

I've been playing with Google CardboardCamera - an app that allows you to take 3D Virtual Reality pictures on your smartphone and view them with a Google Cardboard Viewer.


Anyway, the lovely people at VisitBelfast gave me one of their special viewers, produced for the new Belfast Go Explore VR app (check it out on Google Play or Apple Store), so in honour of the occasion, here are some of my own VR shots of Northern Ireland for your Virtual pleasure!

Simply download the file from the link (these are DropBox) - you should get a file ending in .vr.jpg - then add the file into a folder on your Android device called /DCIM/CardboardCamera and then launch the CardboardCamera app. It should automatically detect the files, and if you have a VR viewer such as the one above, you can be magically transported to a mystical world of wonder (i.e. Northern Ireland). Enjoy!

Let me know in the comments what you think of these, and don't forget to sponsor my cycle ride to Nazareth for the Paeds Department in Nazareth Hospital! Spread the word - thanks!
