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…

Hutton to Hull to Kings Lynn

Wow, what can be said? It’s been a whirlwind couple of days, and as I’m now drinking a glass of Mulled Wine after a three hours of constant driving I’m not entirely sure I can a lot at all. Hutton, as you can expect, is a beautiful spot, the village is ‘the’ quintessential Yorkshire village…

After the first half…

Weston-super-Mare to Ludlow

Poole to Taunton

The day had kind of started with promise, an incredibly full ‘Full English Breakfast’ with all the trimmings and we were off out the door – to collect the car. We then encountered the remnants of our French explorations, a deviation. Yesterday afternoon whilst we were still in France we called Hertz to confirm our…
