Homeward Journey - Singapore

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 15 Jul 2008 | Views [490]

The London to Singapore leg of the journey was with British Airways and two of the TV screens in our row weren't functioning. Not long after take-off neither were the overhead reading lights - 13hrs on a plane with two children, no TV and unable to get ... Read more >

Leaving UK

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 9 Jul 2008 | Views [357]

Hi all. I'm writing this from the departures lounge at Heathrow Airport. It took 2 hours from driving the hire car back to the Europcar office next to one of the runways to finally being able to slump in a chair with a refreshment. We had to do some ... Read more >

Leaving Cardiff

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 27 Jun 2008 | Views [443]

We left Cardiff for the last time today which felt quite strange. Each time we have ventured off to explore, we've returned to Cardiff. While we are looking forward to all that Oxfordshire holds, today's trip begins the last part of our journey before ... Read more >


St. Fagan's

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 26 Jun 2008 | Views [343]

We couldn't leave Cardiff without visiting St. Fagan's - an open-air museum showcasing Welsh life through the centuries. It is composed of buildings that have been transplanted, brick by brick, from all over Wales. It is set on 80 acres of countryside ... Read more >

Tintagel - Birthplace of King Arthur

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 20 Jun 2008 | Views [985] | Comments [2]

Driving back to Cardiff it was difficult to resist the lure of Tintagel on the coast of North Cornwall. According to legend it was here that King Arthur was born. Though the main castle was built in the 13th century by Earl Richard of Cornwall, he was ... Read more >

Cycling to Padstow

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 16 Jun 2008 | Views [538]

After a quiet day yesterday in Marazion we decided today to drive up to North Cornwall to cycle the path that runs along the river from Wadebridge to Padstow. The track runs along a converted railway line so it's nice and flat, but it's about 5 miles ... Read more >

Arriving in Cornwall

UNITED KINGDOM | Saturday, 14 Jun 2008 | Views [1110]

'At the far end of England, a land of rocks and mooreland stretches itself out into a blue-green sea'. So begins the story 'The Mousehole Cat' by Antonia Barber, which we have been listening to on CD since we first arrived in the UK. It's about a cat ... Read more >

Hay-on-Wye. Second-hand book capital of the world

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 10 Jun 2008 | Views [1533] | Comments [1]

We took the pilgrimage to Hay-on-Wye last weekend - booklovers heaven. It's a small, picturesque town just north of the black mountains about 1 1/2 hours drive north of Cardiff through quaint Welsh villages mostly with unpronounceable names. They call ... Read more >


Cosmeston Medieval Village

UNITED KINGDOM | Tuesday, 10 Jun 2008 | Views [2415]

On Sunday we spent the afternoon at Cosmeston Lakes and Parklands about 15 minutes drive away just on the other side of Penarth. The Parkland contains a reconstructed medieval village that we'd seen on one of Terry Jones' (of Monty Python fame) programs ... Read more >

Not Nottingham

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 9 Jun 2008 | Views [567]

With a little bit of research, we've been able to make travel days into highlights for the boys by taking routes that pass child-friendly attractions and scheduling our journeys around them. Even a quick stop for petrol part way to Scotland provided ... Read more >


Diggerland

UNITED KINGDOM | Sunday, 8 Jun 2008 | Views [1810] | Comments [3]

Travelling with young children is certainly a different experience to our previous trips to Europe. Our recent visit to Durham on the way to Hull is a good case in point. Durham is well known for its impressive cathedral and we were eager to take a look.... Read more >
