Welcomed Again

Monday, 14 May 2018 | Views [86]

Sometimes it is a rare gift to meet a person you can connect with from the first moment, and a friend you will talk about almost anything with. Since my last trip I've maintained an email connection with someone like this, and 3 years later she was the ... Read more >

Over Hill and by Sheep

Tuesday, 10 Apr 2018 | Views [110]

From Scotland I journeyed to what is probably one of the most beautiful sections of England, the Cotswolds, or "sheep hills". Great former wealth was brought to this area during the wool trade which I believe carried through the late 1800s. When wool ... Read more >

Findhorn

Tuesday, 10 Apr 2018 | Views [113]

I won't be the first to say that time is an odd thing. The days at Findhorn were long, but enjoyable, and yet so soon after arriving it was time to leave again. I was showed to my shared cottage by one of Eileen Caddy's son's, who spent some of his childhood ... Read more >

Old Friends and New

Friday, 6 Apr 2018 | Views [93]

Since I'd been forced to take the early bus from the Isle of Arran (7 am) due to the road work I arrived in Glasgow about 4 hours before my bus was scheduled to head north. Hopefully I approached the ticket counter and asked if I could swap my mid afternoon ... Read more >

By way of Ferry

Thursday, 5 Apr 2018 | Views [83]

From a lovely attic bedroom in Lochranza I overlooked the harbor with the lights glimmering out from the houses across the water at night, and the old castle somewhere down on the spit of land in the middle. To reach the Isle of Arran you must take about ... Read more >

Back Again

Friday, 30 Mar 2018 | Views [95]

I'm back again across the pond, this time with a little more familiarity, but still plenty of opportunity to add to the "do this differently next time" list. I'd say 1 in 3 people still smoke, they still have a great accent, the underground is now somewhat ... Read more >

Last Week in London - Part 3

Friday, 29 Apr 2016 | Views [55]

After parting ways with my friend in probably one of the most iconic parts of London I made my way back through the tube stations to the north part of London, collected my bags, and back to central London I went again. Even with the wonderful public ... Read more >


Last Week in London - Part 2

Friday, 29 Apr 2016 | Views [206]

Midway through my week in London I'd arranged to meet two friends of mine from home, who were both studying there. This time I got the right tube station and arrived on the dot despite not knowing how long the journey would take. After catching up on ... Read more >


Last Week in London - Part 1

Friday, 29 Apr 2016 | Views [186]

Arriving in London in early October was in a strange way like returning home. Until I returned to England I hadn't realized the subtle tension of being somewhere I didn't speak the language. Scrambling to remember the words for "I'm sorry. I speak English," ... Read more >


Brief visit to Innsbruck

Friday, 2 Oct 2015 | Views [238] | Comments [3]

Vienna marked the most eastern point of my trip. From there I headed west. Our neighborhood really does get around. In Innsbruck I stopped for one night to meet up with 2 of our neighbors off on another cycling trip from Innsbruck to Italy. The timing ... Read more >


Vienna

Friday, 2 Oct 2015 | Views [128]

My 8 day bicycle trip through Austria ended in Vienna. Rather than pay for 2 extra nights in a hotel I looked for a local to stay with. Everyone seemed to be on vacation, but in the end I found a single woman to stay with. She'd just returned from a ... Read more >


The Danube

Wednesday, 23 Sep 2015 | Views [135]

My second day (in Austria) was beginning of a 7 day tradition of waking up around 7 am, having breakfast around 8 am, and making sure my bag was packed and left in the lobby for transport to my next hotel before 9 am. For several mornings I had to keep ... Read more >


Arrival and Day 1 in Germany

Wednesday, 16 Sep 2015 | Views [133]

Arriving in another country always makes for a day of information overload, but even more so when you barely speak a word in the new language. If you have never felt like a lone minority it is an experience you ought to have. Then the challenge is to ... Read more >


Bath

Tuesday, 15 Sep 2015 | Views [126]

My last stop in England before departing for the rest of Europe was Bath, the town famous as a Roman spa, and as the place where Jane Austen spent many years of her life. Once again my hosts here were different, and as usual never exactly what I expected.... Read more >

Near Blenheim Palace

Saturday, 5 Sep 2015 | Views [118] | Comments [1]

Back on the train again I traveled north for only the second time in almost 2 months to see someone I'd met before. Not far from Blenheim Palace I spent another 2 wonderful days with my previous hostess from Pembrokeshire. That evening we went for a ... Read more >


Bradford-On-Avon

Saturday, 5 Sep 2015 | Views [107] | Comments [1]

After the last evening of extreme walking I was very glad to simply settle down on the buses and trains for several hours. For many weeks the trains running east from Bath have been replaced by buses while the train lines are being converted from diesel ... Read more >

Walkin' in the rain

Friday, 4 Sep 2015 | Views [130]

I spent a warm, sunny day traveling from Avebury to the coast of north Devonshire over the course of about 5 hours. So far I had had decent weather almost everyday, except for my travel days. For some reason I think the weather gods got a bit mixed up ... Read more >


Stone and wheat: Avebury

Friday, 4 Sep 2015 | Views [129]

I'm afraid if I do not learn to summarize better you will be forever a week behind me! Yesterday I bid farewell to Great Britain as I headed to Germany, so I hope I can fill you in before I begin much of my journey here. It was still raining steadily ... Read more >

With a friend in the Cotswolds

With the calm light of evening I pulled into the Stroud station in the Cotswolds where I'd arranged to meet my Italian friend from Arisaig. After we'd been pointed to the right road through the roundabouts, and collected a few things from the store for ... Read more >


Pembrokeshire

Monday, 31 Aug 2015 | Views [121]

Time to celebrate; I'm almost done figuring out where I'm staying for the next month and it's only 7:30 instead of midnight! So now I have a chance to bring you up to date with my travels. From my WWOOFing in north Wales I traveled a little less than ... Read more >


Where is she?

Thursday, 27 Aug 2015 | Views [152] | Comments [1]

No, I haven't fallen off one of the cliffs in England. It's been all I can do though to keep up with what I'm doing the next day in between pouring through pages of information on how to reserve European train tickets (oh so complicated!), reading through ... Read more >


North Wales

Sunday, 16 Aug 2015 | Views [210] | Comments [1]

North Wales near the English boarder is not known for its tourist attractions, especially without a car to drive farther afield. My second week of WWOOFing with an English couple in Wales was filled instead with the simple pleasures of the country, and ... Read more >
