All About Ardachy


Hi I’m Trevor. I joined Bookcrossing in April 2006 when I was living on the Black Isle in Scotland and discovered the ‘Books on Bens’ webpage that swan-scot had going. ‘Ardachy’ was the name of the Bed and Breakfast I ran with my wife and I started by releasing books in our guest rooms and local beauty spots. I loved the way that BookCrossing integrated my three interests which were reading, walking and photography.

In 2008 we moved back to East Anglia for family reasons and I became even more active, attending my first BC Convention in Amsterdam and my first UnCon in Swindon. I help manage a number of OBCZs in the Colchester area and regularly attend meet-ups with other BookCrossers. I started Essex BookCrossing and BookCrossing Around Colchester and volunteered as a Region Manager. I also became a member of the BookCrossing team on Kiva which you will probably see me promoting at the UnCon.

My preparations for the UnCon mainly revolve round my roles as Region Manager and Kiva Team Captain but I am also looking forward to meeting old friends like swan-scot and getting to know BookCrossers I have not met before. Having recently taken 1700 books to a festival in Colchester, together with karen07814 and others, I look forward to seeing even more books at the UnCon.

Surprisingly, I do have time for other interests and these include walking, cycling, politics and real ale ( not necessarily in that order! ) and I can be found at various places on the internet including twitter as @ardachybc.
