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…

Keeva!!!!

So today’s a BIG day for me… after over 2 years of being without my hound, the infamous Keeva (my Siberian Husky), we’re finally reunited! Today my parents immigrated back to the UK and brought my doggie with them! It’s been a bit of a process, certainly one I’d have been struggling to get through…

You’re a wizard (or a witch)!

Cue Hedwig’s Theme, yes, we went to Hogwarts! We came down last night, staying at the Premier Inn (yes, we do stay with them an awful lot) in Watford, so we’d be really close this morning – there’s parking at the Warner Bros. Studios, so I wanted to make sure we’d get one before it…

The inside of my history book

When I was in Yr7, we had a history book called Life B.C., it was a fantastic book for 10-11 year olds, great mix of fact and a bit of hands-on historical recreation. One of the things I remember most though, was the pictures. Pictures of Grecian urns, Roman columns, the Rosetta Stone, and canopic…

Wimbledon

Now, for anyone who’s wondered whether or not you can actually afford to go to the tennis, yes, you can! Just don’t be suckered into buying food at the event, it’s a massive rip off. There are plenty of M&S or the like nearby, and believe me when I say, spending 10 mins browsing there,…

From North to South in 12hrs

Ahhh, intrepid readers, welcome back! When last we spoke it was from the sometimes-sunny and dizzyingly wet climes of Scotland, specifically, downtown Dumbarton. That’s a long way north of where this post comes from, as about 430 miles further north. Yes, folks, we’re in London! This morning we set off from our cozy and warm…

Across the bonnie waters

Today we set off from the Lake District, after a very pleasant night’s rest and an exceptionally filling full English breakfast, stopping only to top up the fuel tanks before we hit the road; first destintination, Gretna Green. It was somewhere around Penrith that we had this crazy idea of posting a photo on Facebook,…

We’re off again!

Once upon a time, two travellers had a wonderful idea to set off exploring their favourite corner in the United Kingdom. It just so happens that their travel dates were around Summer Solstice, and the momentous and much maligned European Referendum. Together they set off from their homes with an overnight stop planned for near…

It ain’t over just yet…

So it’s been a long time since the last post, both on Facebook and on the Blog, and you didn’t really miss much. To recap what wasn’t posted; we travelled down to London from York, went to the Making of Harry Potter at Universal Studios, caught up with some friends in Richmond, spent the day…

London, you’ve been Pik’d

Staying in Richmond has its advantages, for one we’re only a short distance from Hampton Court Palace, which was where we were today… for pretty much all morning… because you know, why not? So on the bus we hopped and off it chugged, and I do mean chugged, it lurched, it stopped suddenly for invisible…

Err, what day is it?

My deepest and most sincere apologies for the extreme tardiness of recent days as to the lack of publishing any blog entries, it’s been a rather… interesting… time for us, one of which you’ll no doubt enjoy reading in the following paragraphs. To begin with I’ll revisit our time in York, or rather our final…

Days Six and Seven

Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside… It’s a famous, or infamous, line from a well known and cherished song, my parents know it, my grandparents used to sing it to me when I was a child (and other songs/rhymes I’ve long since forgotten all the words too), and it’s still true today….
