My Last Days in the British Isles

Monday, 24 Oct 2016 | Views [258]

It seems like just yesterday but it was over three and a half months ago that I boarded a ferry from the mainland to England, not knowing what I'd find or even pretty much how I'd entertain myself.  The Schengen Agreement prohibited me from staying ... Read more >


Plymouth and the "Pilgrims"

Monday, 24 Oct 2016 | Views [510] | Comments [1]

Ranting Alert!  Thought I'd make a quick stop in Plymouth, England and check-out the Mayflower Steps -- supposedly the actual steps used by the Pilgrims back in 1620 to board their ship to America -- and did I get a history lesson!  Seems like ... Read more >

A King, a Doctor and a Jail

Saturday, 15 Oct 2016 | Views [244]

Spent the day driving to the Cornwall area in southeastern England -- if you look for it on a map, its the foot and toe part of England.   Arrived earlier than planned so decided to head off to Tintagel Castle for a couple of hours.  In ... Read more >

Lincoln Castle, A Victorian Prison and the Magna Carta

Wednesday, 28 Sep 2016 | Views [247]

Leaving Nottingham behind without as much as a glimpse of Robin Hood and his Merry Men, I headed off to visit Lincoln Cathedral, and on a whim, Lincoln Castle.  For some reason, the Catherdal gets "first booking" in most tour guides -- a beautiful, ... Read more >


Cambridge and Castles

Wednesday, 28 Sep 2016 | Views [296]

Finally made it out of London -- a two hour slog in stop and go traffic at 1:00pm -- not fun!  Cambridge ws my next stop -- somewhat disappoointing but it has potential.  Disappointing in that I didn't get to visit any "tourist" attractions ... Read more >


Adventures in London

Monday, 26 Sep 2016 | Views [252]

Drove from Salisbury to London -- again, heavy trafic, but we made it, checked into the hotel and and headed off to explore the nearby neighborhood.  It became apparent that London is very much a multi-cultural city with a very heavy middle and ... Read more >


Stonehenge

Sunday, 25 Sep 2016 | Views [332]

Morning came early -- taking the ferry to England and had to be at the dock by 7:45am to check-in.  There's been quite a few novels written about the romance of taking a "slow boat to nowhere" -- those authors have obviously never taken a ferry ... Read more >
