Three weeks to go... and sh****ng myself! After three years of plans falling through due to lack of money, unreliable travel companions and probably a subconcious desire to sabotauge because I just knew I wasn't ready, I am FINALLY going to quit the 9 to 5 and get back to basics! So I'm off to Addis Ababa in just over 3 weeks, to work in the city with a travel company and volunteer in an orphanage in my spare time! I intend to stay for 6 months. Talk about jumping in at the deep end! :)... read more

Mary had asked us to plan where to go on the Bank Holiday on 29 August 2011. I suggested visiting Oxburgh Hall which we visited with my mother in 2005. We remembered the red brick wall, moated manor house, church, vegetable garden, and woodland walks. As we arrived at the Car Park, we decided to do woodland walks starting from the church. We followed the numbers and arrows. There were wooden sculptures, e.g. rabbit, squirrel, owl, heron and a green man and we saw them while following the signs. The woodland trail took us to the woodland surrounded by lush countryside, viewpoint to the manor house, and a little stream. John and Mary had planned doing picnic and brought folding chairs. However, it wasn’t warm enough to do picnic on 29 August and we decided to ... read more

Afternoon... I have been wanting to start a b log about my travels for some time now, but just haven't been able to get around to goes. My name is Wes. Originally from Canada, I now live in Norwich in the UK. I've been travelling for a few years, although to be honest I haven't been to nearly as many places as I would like! (I suspect that goes the same for the majority of travellers here!) As I mentioned, I'm originally from Canada, Windsor Ontario to be exact. List of places I've been: Canada (Lived) USA UK (Lived) India Italy Spain Bermuda (Lived) I hope to add in more content over the next while about places I've been and lived. If anyone had questions, please get in touch. ... read more

Hello blog-followers! I arrived in London (from Dublin, Ireland) a few weeks ago so have a lot to update you on, so here we go.. Working at a kids summer camp was the push for me to get out of Oz and explore the big wide world, so before I got settled for the 6 week challenge I set aside 3 days in London to do some sight-seeing and enjoy some time on my own before surrounding myself with crazy kids, long days and action packed activities! London - Day 1 I caught the tube (London’s easy & efficient way to travel) and took a peak inside Westminster Cathedral before setting foot to visit her Royal Highness (the flag was flying, signalling she was home) and watching the change of the guard at Buckingham Palace. The ... read more

4 days now until myself, Stephanie and Jonathan embark on our two month adventure! Starting to get nervous now and I feel totally unprepared but I'm not quite sure whether you can be completely prepared for such a trip. I graduated 2 days ago from the University of East Anglia and am enjoying this time now to party with friends who are all dispersing on their own adventures. I have grown to love university but now is the time to leave, grow up, see the world and challenge myself. I will blog again soon once the journey has commenced. New York - here we come! xxx... read more

Just back from a great weekend in the 'big sky' country of England; Norfolk. Scott, Adam, Myles and I headed off out of London early Saturday morning arriving at Kings Lynn around 9.30. We were soon heading towards the start of our walk, which was a section of the famous Peddlers Way / Norfolk Coast Path. Our kick off point was a standard British seaside town called Hunstanton. We jetted out of there pretty quickly. The first part of the walk was along and behind the sand dunes and past a bird sanctury. To our amusement there were a number of bird watchers around. Their equipment must cost a fortune. We then did a 'U' in land, which offered fanastic views back to the coast. We walked past huge fields of wheat which were a lovely ... read more
