Farewell to Old England ...

Sunday, 17 May 2015 | Views [350]

I hope not. But I'm being realistic. I may not get to my beloved England again. That doesn't mean no travelling. I'm an addicted traveller - wanderlust is never far away. But I chose this Trafalgar Tour in the belief that I might not get back. It has ... Read more >

Trafalgar by Bus

Saturday, 9 May 2015 | Views [250]

With the overseas contingent of my family returning to Australia later in the year, I won't have that motivation to brave the long flight again. This may be my last trip to Europe and to my beloved England. So the last week of this trip has been - in ... Read more >

I (Heart) London

Monday, 19 Aug 2013 | Views [402]

Back to London via Ryanair. Perhaps I don't need to expand on that! I was looking forward to getting back to a country which understands the value of queues. But fate was not ready to leave me alone yet, so having arrived at Stanstead Airport the ... Read more >

A Host of Golden Daffodils

Tuesday, 11 May 2010 | Views [423]

The day after the ceiling incident, Luke and I took off to the Lakes District. We stayed in a little gingerbread house in Windemere. Of course, it isn't really gingerbread. It is built of local slate, but at a distance it looks like gingerbread. Or maybe ... Read more >

The Sky is Falling!

Tuesday, 4 May 2010 | Views [442]

No. Not a comment on the British Elections! Luke and Kerstin live in an old Victorian Townhouse that has been made into three flats - one on each floor. They are in the ground floor flat. When I visit I sleep on the sofa bed in the lounge room. During ... Read more >

Maybe it's because I'm a Londoner..

I farwelled Bookworm at Istanbul airport. It has been a challenging holiday physically, but we've survived and thrived. She will have her own stories. She should be back in Oz as I write. The flight to London was full of Aussies who'd been at Gallipoli ... Read more >

Searching for Avalon

Monday, 29 Jun 2009 | Views [439]

I've just finished my Celtic Pilgrimage to Devon and Cornwall. If there is such a thing as past lives, I'm sure I've lived one in this part of the world. The standing stones - Stonehenge and Avebury as well as the hundreds that just dot the landscape ... Read more >

Lovely Old Buildings

Tuesday, 23 Jun 2009 | Views [445] | Comments [1]

Just a quick update before I head for the wilds of Devon and Cornwall. In recent days I've done some day trips from London - one to Winchester and one to Cambridge. I went to Winchester specifically to see The Old Mill. In 1969, my friend Marg and ... Read more >

Mother England

Wednesday, 10 Jun 2009 | Views [602] | Comments [1]

When I was younger (so much younger than today...) I lived in London for 2 years. And it has such fun memories for me that I love it despite its peculiarities. So I'm forgiving it for the two things about today that I'd forgotten are so much part of ... Read more >
