Big Green Gathering

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 27 Aug 2007 | Views [523]

Following the disappointment of Latitude and its distinct lack of hippies and the like, we’d signed up at the last minute to do Big Green Gathering (near Cheddar) for a different stewarding group, Green Stewards. It was interesting to see ... Read more >

WOMAD/WOMUD

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 27 Aug 2007 | Views [2118] | Comments [1]

After yet another balloon flight cancellation in Marlborough we headed for the WOMAD site, near Malmesbury. Avebury is one of our favourite places, being a much larger stone circle that Stonehenge, so we made a detour through it. The stones ... Read more >

Great Eversden (nr Cambridge)

UNITED KINGDOM | Monday, 23 Jul 2007 | Views [1264]

Unfortunately, but predictably, we got stung for MOT repairs to Vinnie. Of a list of a dozen or so faults I managed to fix about 5 of them, armed with just a pocket knife. For the rest we needed to leave Vinnie at the garage in Cambridge for nearly ... Read more >

Latitude 2007

This festival, in its second year is supposed to be like a mini Glastonbury, supporting a range of contemporary performing arts such as poetry, theatre, comedy as well as music. It’s set in a beautiful estate park near Southwold… and there ends the ... Read more >

Cambridge Revisited

UNITED KINGDOM | Wednesday, 11 Jul 2007 | Views [609]

In Cambridge we've managed to catch up with loads of friends. Kim and Ainslie, Guy, Shelagh and wee Anna, Mel, Alex and Dan, Penny, Roger, Jenny, Richard et al! Within a few minutes of arriving we were walking down Mill Road and Mel cycled past - nice ... Read more >

Toe Update

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 6 Jul 2007 | Views [1273]

In my not-so-professional opinion and with full consideration of the available facts, I’m now pretty confident that the ‘sore toe’ (see Southampton Beer Festival) should be redesignated ‘the broken toe’. Nearly four weeks later most of the bruising ... Read more >

A Kentish Girl

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 6 Jul 2007 | Views [876]

The next day we had our longest drive to date – across to Birchington in Kent to meet up with a long lost cousin, Trevor Brook. He and his partner Irene were very welcoming and had more information about the family than I could take in in one ... Read more >

Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts 2007

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 5 Jul 2007 | Views [1487] | Comments [2]

We left Bath and headed back to Glastonbury/Street through the Mendips. Vinnie didn’t like the uphill bits and narrow lanes much. We parked up at our favourite spot in Street and did the last minute shopping stuff in Glastonbury itself. Tom was on the ... Read more >

Bath

UNITED KINGDOM | Thursday, 5 Jul 2007 | Views [419]

Bath is a town planner’s victory! Lots of glorious buildings in harmony with each other. We took ourselves on a walking tour starting with the Royal Crescent then the Circus (where I found 2 quid yay!), then the baths old and new. We’d spent that ... Read more >

Street/Bristol

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 15 Jun 2007 | Views [597] | Comments [2]

We spent a night in a car park in Street, a village just south of Glastonbury (and where some Bockett’s lived in the 1400’s) ready for our morning balloon flight over Glastonbury. But alas, it was cancelled due to icky weather. Street has ... Read more >

Glastonbury

UNITED KINGDOM | Friday, 15 Jun 2007 | Views [485]

After breakfast with Vic and Peter we headed to north with a detour through The Wallops. I’ve always wanted to go to Nether Wallop since a comedy festival was televised from there in the 80s (fundraising a new church spire or similar). We then headed ... Read more >
