Paddling on the Wye 17/09/2013

Wye you may ask. Did I mention never believe Ray when he says it will be a pleasant three days just floating down the river? First day we had to go 20 miles (that's MILES). It started off grey and... Read More

At the beach 20/09/2013

We went to Bath yesterday and visited the Roman Baths. Listened to Bill Bryson and some other boring people who provided commentary about the site. Actually it was quite interesting, but a race agains... Read More

English scenes 21/09/2013

Not so sunny Scotland 7/09/2013

Adios Espagna, bienvenu France
