With a friend in the Cotswolds

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 1 Sep 2015 | Views [192]

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

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 31 Aug 2015 | Views [162]

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?

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 27 Aug 2015 | Views [210] | 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

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 16 Aug 2015 | Views [260] | 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 >


Peak Districct of hills

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 14 Aug 2015 | Views [201] | Comments [1]

I need a vacation from my holiday! I've spent every night of the last week looking at areas to visit, and places to stay. The first planned 6 weeks of my travels have been a real blessing; only the buses and trains to figure out in between. I gave myself ... Read more >


Grand Gardens, and Famous Houses

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 8 Aug 2015 | Views [218]

Well so much for my attempt to keep up to date! At any rate here's what I've been up to. Within 4 days I walked through 3 old houses (ancient in American terms) and their gardens beginning on the small end with Beatrix Potter's home and ending with ... Read more >


High in the mountains

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 1 Aug 2015 | Views [177] | Comments [2]

Well I finished my hedge today! It looks fantastic! It was a bit cloudy again, but not much rain. Since I finished up with the last couple details on the hedge in the afternoon my host suggested I just go for a walk with the rest of my day. I'd been ... Read more >


Gardens in the Lake District

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 1 Aug 2015 | Views [119] | Comments [1]

On Sunday I bid farewell to Scotland as I slid smoothly along the rail back into England. After 3 trains, 2 buses and a ferry I arrived in the Lake District for my first WWOOFing experience. I'm staying with a couple who work as professional gardeners ... Read more >


Isle of Arran

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 30 Jul 2015 | Views [107] | Comments [1]

You really can't go anywhere in Scotland, or probably in all of the British Isles without finding some sort of Castle. The Isle of Arran is not exception. From the outside the partly destroyed castle in Lochranza harbor does not look like much, but inside ... Read more >


Tighnabruaich

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 30 Jul 2015 | Views [133]

Located on one of the many peninsulas on the West coast of Scotland Tighnabruaich consists mainly of one hotel and many houses facing the harbor with it's collections of small boats. As seems to generally be the case I spend the most on traveling from ... Read more >


Glencoe

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 26 Jul 2015 | Views [166] | Comments [1]

It's said to be one of the most beautiful glens in Scotland. Due though to once more being demoted to a bus instead of a train from Arisiag I ended up with more time to peruse Fort William while I waited for my plan B bus from there to Glencoe. I waited ... Read more >


Arisiag by the Sea

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 25 Jul 2015 | Views [142] | Comments [1]

From the little village of Arisaig on the west coast you can see the Isle of Skye, Rum, and Eigg just off the coast. I was supposed to take the train here, but as the rail workers were on strike I ended up in a bus instead, along with many other disappointed ... Read more >


On to the North: Loch Ness

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 23 Jul 2015 | Views [156] | Comments [1]

On my way north to Loch Ness I saw for the first time the vast moors of Scotland. There is somethings impressive and awesome in the miles of vast hills painted in a range of green from light to near brown like an artist's palette. I reached the most ... Read more >


Middle Earth: Perthshire

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 23 Jul 2015 | Views [401]

Well now let's see if I can catch everyone up on the beautiful places I've been, and do a bit better about posting consistently! After Edinburgh I arrived in the twin towns of Birnam and Dunkeld, separated by the River Tay and probably smaller than ... Read more >


Around Edinburgh

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 18 Jul 2015 | Views [515] | Comments [5]

Between there being so much to see and the fact that it stays light here until 10 pm I have run out of time in the day to update my travels and still get some sleep. So here's a bit of catch up. I thought it might be easier to summariz my experiences ... Read more >


Royal Windsor

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 10 Jul 2015 | Views [597] | Comments [7]

Being logged out and losing everything I've written is getting really old! For the last two days I've spent most of my time within the 900 year old walls of Windsor Castle. No photography is allowed inside the buildings, so my opportunities are reather ... Read more >

Day 1: Arrival

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 8 Jul 2015 | Views [216] | Comments [2]

It's been 24 hours since I left home. Within that time I've had about 4 hours of sleep, and gone through seven time zones. Now it's 23:00 as most clocks will read here in the UK. I had written more, but when I was timed out it went away. So it's time ... Read more >
