Luca Vuerich hut

This mountain-top hut with a sweeping panoramic view of the Julian Alps in Italy is free to stay for anyone who knocks on its door.

Except, you’ll have to hike 8,300ft up Foronon del Buinz Mountain to get to it.

Off home tomorrow so hope the customs control/passport men at the airport don’t mistake my wobbly legs tired/stiff walk for anything suspicious!?

great chess

A couple of weeks back, one of my year 6 pupils was lucky enough to go along to the House of Lords and play in a simultaneous [10 matches] game with Gary Kasparov! Something he’ll remember for life I hope. He managed to stay alive for 20 moves.

We also got to visit and play at the London Chess Classic last week. 500 children in a hall at Olympia playing chess is wonderful for the future of the game.

At a slightly higher level.
