Europe » France » Lower Normandy » Bayeux February 25th 2015

Normandy and D-Day are easily recognized words meaning the greatest amphibious assault in human history that brought the end of WWII in a little less than a year. I was privileged enough to get and spend a day touring the sights during my recent trip to France. I stayed in Bayeux which was liberated by the British and not touched during the war so the town is just as beautiful and authentic as it was before the war. Many of the restaurants and various places in town have signs thanking the liberators and welcoming veterans and maybe it is all a tourist ploy, but I did not get that feeling walking around the town. These people are still very thankful for the sacrifice that all the Allied troops made to liberate the French people from the ... read more

Europe » Spain » Andalusia February 25th 2015

A hearty hola to you dear readers from the sun soaked, cloudless blue skied and generally groovy part of Spain that is called El Rocio. Due to the heat your correspondent and the dog known as Cusco have been forced indoors to cool down - damn these hot February days. All this chatter of lovely weather can only mean one thing - I have got ahead of myself, as you have not yet been amazed, astounded and even perhaps interested in our journey here. Many adventures and tales of valor to tell, so settle back and read on beginning with the first day of our odessey ......... ......... which started in Barton on Sea, where I managed to reverse onto a post and rip a back panel off Claude - that is enough about the first ... read more

I 'd Just got back from Glasgow when there was a knock at the door, and there was Mervena, an Australian lady we'd met whilst in New Zealand. She and Alex had been jet boating together - while I had coffee and watched! She's come over for Crufts and looked us up. We've had a lovely time, despite the horrid weather, and seen a bit, and downed a few glasses!... read more

Europe » France » Île-de-France » Paris February 24th 2015

My second stay in Paris came after touring the D-Day sites. I brought the train back into Paris from Bayeux and made my way to the Champs Elysees. I walked along the famous avenue and admired the size and the many different people that I passed. I made my way down the road toward the Arc De Triompe. I was surprised at the size of the Arc. I had no idea exactly how large it was until I was standing across the street from it. Also watching the traffic drive around and weave in and out was amusing. Of course the area around the Arc was packed with tourist and with lots of tourist comes scammers and pickpocketers. I had an encounter with one, but I was well aware of what he was trying to do. ... read more

Hey Everyone! I'm Laura 😄. This time last year I was planning a trip to India. This indian adventure would change everything for me. Returning from that trip I couldn't wait to see what else the world had to offer and planned another thailand Malaysia and Singapore trip. Well.....that was it for me....stick a fork in me....I was done. So I started planning my great escape! But what to do and where to go? Well years before I had wanted to go to Australia, so it's a good place to start. Then that evolved into a trip to Dubai and a tour of China and Hong kong before i arrive in Australia. I gave up my job as an ITU nurse in a busy city hospital and sold all my things. So that's where I am ... read more

One night after the nightshift at my temporary job as a cashier, my boyfriend and I were closer than ever. March would be three months away by that point which is quite close to March and I decided it was now or never to put my plans into action. Literally, I was walking out of the shopping centre, it was a clear ngiht and he had sent me a really nice message, the timing was perfect and so I asked my dad if I could go to Japan. "Ok, but you're paying for it."- was his reply and by then I had earned £1,000 which is double the price fare anyway! This us my first independent trip alone, and it's to Asia! Japan has been my dream for 8 years and I feel the time is ... read more

I was asked to go to stay for a week in Glasgow, while Tom went to London for work. Guess what, I was delighted to go. I was kept very busy all the time, though at least I was allowed to sleep through the night, unlike Sophie. Martha does nothing but a give running commentary on everything, and Jack just watches. If you've seen Sophie's blog, the pictures may look familiar, because she STOLE mine.... read more
