Woolly says – We are quickly approaching our sixth year with travelblog, time seems to have raced by in many ways and yet been reluctant to move at other points. Throughout our time here we have loved being part of the family and community that not only runs the site but travels and blogs as well. Each day has provided me with fascinating blogs to absorb as well as for filling my role as a moderator in the total removal of spam, I look forward to doing this for many more years to come. Jo and I have been working on a new website, it is still very much a work in progress so please bear with Jo on this, as I have completed the basics of setting it up, I think it only fair that ... read more

Woolly says – I had put my paw down with, well a firm paw! Earache all the way down the hill and past Dudley Zoo, will she never stop! He’s very cute when he’s riled! Our discussion had resulted in my begrudgingly agreeing to go along with his royal fur-ness and re-visit for the 28th time (yes you have read that correctly) the Black Country Museum in Dudley. Having taught in Dudley Borough for more years than I care to remember this is the yearly school trip (if you’re lucky, I had to do it three times during the one academic year!) that every pupil goes on and that requires teachers to accompany them, namely me, but in fairness it was a place that Woolly had yet to discover so lead on mammoth!

Woolly was looking a little jaded following the birthday celebrations of the night before. Woolly says – She can talk! With copious cups of tea and coffee consumed I hustled Jo and daughter Zoe outside to meet up with friend Daisy, who was joining us for our adventure. I had been looking forward to this outing for weeks and having begged and pleaded with my big brown eyes Jo had finally succumbed to my charms and said she would take me to Dudley Zoo. We’re going to the zoo tomorrow, the zoo tomorrow…….. He is hard to resist sometimes and although I’m not a lover of zoo’s it was the first time since our Safari in Portugal last year that the mammoth would see some animals. Woolly says – Even better than the animals is the ... read more

I think I'm ready to go anyway, bags are all packed and well within the weight limit, although I'm convinced I've forgotten something! Still don't think its sunk in yet that I have passed finals and am going to Nepal tomorrow! After all the messing around this week with the flights, I will be amazed if I turn up at Heathrow and actually have a place on my flight to Doha and I make it onto the connecting flight. I will be even more amazed if someone turns up at the airport to meet me in Kathmandu, not convinced that I managed to get my message across about the change in schedule, we shall see! Will try and keep this as updated as much as I can, but no idea at the moment how often I ... read more
