London calling… again

Back in London this weekend. We’re between destinations at the moment, and enjoying a mini-break before we head off again. So whilst one of us went to see Hamilton (which by all accounts was amazing and well worth going to see if theatre’s your thing), I went to the British Museum to check out the…

Sunny springtime Sunday

Home again, home again, jigedy-jig. Our time in Scarborough has come to an end, for the moment at least, and today we made our way back home. After two earlier mornings, we took the opportunity to have a slower start today, not leaving the hotel until 10. As we were both still feeling quite full…

Scarborough on a Saturday

Yawn, what a day! We were up early today, and as the hotel doesn’t do breakfast right now, it was off down to the Harbour View Cafe (TripAdvisor) for a bite to eat. Oh what a bite it was too! Stuffed to the gun-whales to say the least! If you’re ever in Scarborough and looking…

Feeling Fine on Friday

Run away! Ruuuuun away! Don’t mind if we do! We’ve escaped the doldrums for the weekend and fled to the coast. A two-night break away to take the coastal air, clear our heads of all the work palaver, and enjoy ourselves. We’ve found ourselves a nice little package for two nights in Scarborough, which I’ve…

Bye-bye Bobby!

All good things must come to an end… but gosh, darn that was quick! Did it really have to be so soon? This morning we were up early again, down for breakfast and out the door and away across town for our first attraction, Edinburgh Zoo (TripAdvisor). We had an appointment with a knight, Sir…

Away up in the highlands!

Yawn, thank goodness for coffee! Today we were up early, so early that we couldn’t stay for breakfast, we were due outside the Rabbie’s office (TripAdvisor) for an 8am departure! What were we doing there at that hour? Well, today we went on their West Highland Lochs and Castles Tour! This is how our day panned…

All around the Old Town!

It was ‘up and at em’ this morning, not a minute to waste! We started the day with a pretty decent breakfast from our Apex hotel, the usual continental and cooked fayre, then headed, quite literally, across the street to the Grassmarket (TripAdvisor)… market. It’s a weekly feature to Edinburgh, and we’d heard about it,…

Happy Birthday to… Bob!

So this week I turned the big 4-0. It’s not something I wanted to make a big deal about, so rather than have a huge party, with lots of people, and a massive bill, I chose to runaway to Edinburgh for the weekend. We caught a late morning train from York, up along the eastern…

Biggest Adventure yet…

So, to cut a long story short, I’m married now… as of today… roughly 15 hours ago in fact, and this is what happened: Our day started early… some would say too early for a wedding day, but there you go, I’m a morning person, and unfortunately my now spouse is being forced to accept…

Going up in Aberystwyth

Hello, hello! Welcome back to another scintillating tale of adventure, of culinary delights, of utter twaddle written here for our, and hopefully your, amusement. In other words, another attempt at 500 words to aid in filling your inbox! This morning we were up and off, bags packed, breakfast eaten (nothing tasty, just left over cold…
