Helen's blog: to record Lexie's first travel experience and visit to her family in England. ---------------- I guess having two parents who both have wonderlust for travel, and who met while living oversea's, it shouldn't be suprising that Lexie took to the skies, and travelled such a long distance, like a duck to water. We followed all the advice kindly given, fed her on the ascent and descent, and she didn't even peep the entire journey, and happily passed the time, sleeping (at least 8 hours!), playing with her toys and winning over the entire cabin crew, and nearby passengers, by smiling, giggling and screaming with delight at all attention given. That's my girl!! So many people commented on what a gorgeous, and happy baby she is - thank goodness for that! On arrival at Birmingham ... read more

Saturday 10.4.2010 day 178 Exchanging our laptop as it did not work The other day we got a new laptop as the old one stopped working but the battery pack would not clip in so we had to go back to the shop and exchange it today. We also got some boxes to send some of our excess stuff back and did some more food shopping. It is a nice sunny day so we are now chilling on the farm listening to music with the window open. As it is so sunny we are having cocktails I am having a Long Island Ice tea yum..... I should be packing the boxes to send but that will have to wait till tomorrow. ... read more

Wednesday 7.4.2010 day 175 Shopping in Great Malvern and Worcester Today we were looking for some computer equipment and a bag to put out extra things to send back home in. You should see the pile of books we have. On the way we went past some very nice country side and saw cows and sheep on the road. We first went to a big shopping centre but could not find what we wanted then we went in the high street (city centre) of Worcester and still could not find what we wanted so we went back home feeling a little down. ... read more

Last year I set about walking the Shakespeare's Avon Way. This is a long distance walk of 88 miles following the River Avon from its source near to Naseby in Northamptonshire to where it meets the River Severn at Tewkesbury. The walk does not follow the river bank from beginning to end as that would be impossible. The Way does its best to keep as close to the river as it can but every now and again one is diverted away from the Avon and this means the occasional walk along country lanes. Last year I set off from Naseby and got to Evesham in 4 days leaving me to complete the stretch from Evesham to Tewkesbury. Today was set aside to do the 8 mile stretch from Evesham to Pershore. This was a pleasant walk ... read more

Day 394 We set off after work to Vicky's (our landlady/house mate) to her mum's house in Malvern (voted the one of the most beautiful and picturesque countryside of England. With a quick stop at Worscester for a pic of the cathedral glistening under a near full moon, we arrived at her mothers beautiful English house filled with traditional furniture, hundreds of tea cups and the most amazing dolls house I'd ever seen (It could have kept Carly entertained for hours) unfortunately it was time for bed! Day 395 After a much needed sleep in we cooked ourselves a traditional English breaky (well almost minus the black pudding and sausage) and set off up the Malvern hills with the dogs. (As we were dog sitting Vicky┬┤s dog Tash and her mums dog Pippen for the day). ... read more

25 April 2009 Our intention was to have left at the beginning of April on a two month trip with the van to Greece. Unfortunately while we were away skiing in January Wendy fell over a snowy kerb while crossing a road carrying her skis and broke her leg. Thankfully the break is now healed and we are leaving tomorrow for a seven week tour around Germany. We have chosen Germany because we have driven through the country several times on our way to somewhere else and always said we should find an opportunity to visit properly. This seemed as good a time as any. We plan to start by working our way down the Rhine, go south to Lake Constance and come back on the east side of the country, visiting Berlin and the Baltic ... read more

05 - 07 April 2009 We had two nights with Ruth during which I had a lovely walk with her dog and we had a very enjoyable iChat video talk with her son James and his wife Bobbie who live in the USA and were on holiday in the Bahamas. On the way home we stayed overnight with Emma, Sam and the boys who were trying out there new tent at Brean just north of Burnham on Sea. I think they found camping at this time of the year quite cold, particularly with the wind blowing off the Bristol Channel. This very enjoyable week has shown us that there is an awful lot of the U.K. that we need to make time to see. ... read more
