Pandering around Sicily

Ray's dream has come true. After the debacle of the initial car hire, we were able to use a local firm in Cefalu, get a car for half the price and with no extra charges for another driver and... Read More

Long day's journey into night

As we glided on the calm waters of the Mediterranean through the early morning mist, towards Naples, I couldn't help thinking "why would you want to go anywhere else?" Apart from the bla... Read More

Pompeii down under

After wandering around Pompeii for three hours, looking at ruins and fighting the crowds, I was hoping Vesuvius might erupt to put an end to my misery. The worst that happened was that we chose a cafe... Read More

Hello from KL 02/09/2013

We are currently sitting in a "French" patisserie at the airport. Unfortunately it is airport standard food in a quaint French setting. The flight was uneventful and let's hope the rest ... Read More

Thoughtsth from Edinburghth 5/09/2013

Hi everyone, we have just recovered from our 12 hours of walking yesterday, with a trip on the Firth of Forth (no lispths included). The weather has been great, blue skies and not too cold. Tonight w... Read More

On the road again 10/09/2013

Stayed at Spean Bridge last night, not under it, but in a cute b&b near the river. It has the smallest shower cubicle in the world. Just as well I don't have long arms. We are very close to Be... Read More

Never believe Ray when he says it's just a short hill to ride up. We spent 5 hours riding, 3 hours by the loch and 2 hours going up a mountain. I can barely move! And no, the scenery was not worth... Read More

Last Castle done and dusted 12/09/2013

We finally visited our last ruined castle in the rain today. Dunbarton Castle is on a rock overlooking the Firth of Clyde and we reached the top (700 metres) via 500 stairs. There weren't too many... Read More

Up the Brits 14/09/2013

There is nothing quite like a British library. We have had to resort to visiting the library in Ross on Wye to use the internet, as the wifi in our quaint B&B is not working for us. Yesterday it j... Read More

Over Wye 18/09/2013

Well we persevered with the river and finally got to the end. We paddled 14 miles in 4 hours, and it only rained tumultuously for 3 hours and 59 minutes. It rained because it was too cold to snow. I w... Read More
