I picked him up at the airport
U.K Megalithic Tour - 10 Days on the Road
Me, Rich and Jay, my 'Modern Explorer
' friends, hired a spaceship
called 'Shrooms' and travelled from London to the Orkney Islands, just North of Scotland, then down to Landsend near Penzance in search of Megalithic sites such as the famous Stonehenge.
Jay flew in from San Fran so I showed him around London for a few days, then on the 1st March we picked up the spaceship and Rich, to start our Tour.
It was a real pleasure to be able to share my passion for megalithic sites with 2 great friends, who share my interest. Driving around the U.K, sleeping in a tent on the roof next to fields full of stones and filming a documentary matched any of my experiences during my last 10 years of travelling.
