Continuing South

One of the significant things about our adventure has been that we’ve been able to visit sites that have been significant to us in terms of literature, art and film as well as those significant historically.  Today was a cool day for this.... Read more >

Haggis, Edinburgh and Happy Birthdays!!

Thursday, 1 Oct 2009 | Views [257]

I definitely feel twenty-four. Twenty-four seemed old a couple of weeks ago, but now I think I definitely feel twenty-four. I think it’s a good age. A good point in my life and a good, strong age. Edinburgh was a fricking sweet place to spend my birthday.... Read more >

Bath and Avebury

Oh Lordy, make me rich rich rich so I can buy me a summer-house in Bath. Just a little one would do. I wouldn’t need much room as I wouldn’t be in very often. I’d bathe everyday in the baths, obvi, eat Cornish pasties everyday, again obvi, and spend all ... Read more >

Stood on Nelson’s HMS Victory in Portsmouth today. Such a good day on the harbour and by the seaside. Ticket to see the HMSes and their museums and have a harbour tour was quite good value. I pretended I was in Hornblower...truth be told that I was Hornblower ... Read more >
