  • Spring = sprungAfter welcoming Juliet and Sam back to their own home on Friday, it was time for us to embark on a little bit of a roadtrip. It was a fairly unremarkable journey, apart from the iPad telling us to Posted by Buccas in 2016 - The Year of the Nink | Mar 22, 2016
  • England (Hogwarts and Brighton)Hello! On the 15th, I went to Hogwarts, and it was fabulous. I spent six hours there in total experiencing a wide range of emotion, the most prevalent being awe. All of you should be aware how Potter-obsessed I am, so Posted by jennamiller in And So The Adventure Begins... | Mar 21, 2016
  • Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and DorsetWe woke to a misty morning in Cheddar, however the day improved as we travelled on towards Landsend.

  • Bumbling about in Botts GreenI think we’ve just about got the hang of living here. We’ve had Aga-fried eggs, and Aga-baked potatoes, and Aga-dried clothes. We’ve walked the dogs through the fields every day, we’ve shopped at Tuckey’s butcher, and we’ve opened Posted by Buccas in 2016 - The Year of the Nink | Mar 17, 2016
  • A is for AgaThis blog entry is being written on the set of Escape to the Country. Nan and Aunty Marg – you would be incredibly jealous of our current location! But let’s backtrack for a minute to clarify how we Posted by Buccas in 2016 - The Year of the Nink | Mar 11, 2016
  • South Wales, Hawkesbury Upton and the CotswoldsOn Friday, the 29th of January, it was with excitement that we boarded the National Express bus from Bournemouth to Newport.

  • The adventures of Fish Boy and Mud FlapsWhat a wonderful weekend! We have done some serious adventuring and exploring, and we are now all fluent speakers of French (and I use the term ‘fluent’ very loosely). We started with a job interview in Ripley (believe it or Posted by Buccas in 2016 - The Year of the Nink | Mar 7, 2016
  • A is for AsdaThis morning was always going to be tough. For starters, there was the issue of the Polish vodka the night before.

  • Let it snowOur final morning in Manchester dampened our spirits – quite literally. The rain was lovely to watch falling on the church windows but less lovely to walk in, so we caught a taxi to the station. En route Posted by Buccas in 2016 - The Year of the Nink | Mar 3, 2016
  • FreedomYesterday’s goal was to be free. Being ninks, we are developing our abilities to scout out free stuff and make the most of it. Thanks to some tips from Andy, we had a good crack at it! First stop Posted by Buccas in 2016 - The Year of the Nink | Mar 1, 2016
  • London and BournemouthOn the night of the 18th of January, Lynelle's birthday, we said our farewells to New York and boarded our Norwegian Air flight to Gatwick, London. Once again we experienced great service and a very comfortable flight. We landed at Gatwick Posted by denis.lynelle in Lynelle & Denis | Feb 29, 2016
  • Farewell Singapore, hello UK!Yesterday was fun, if your definition of fun involves sitting on planes for about 15 hours (bearing in mind that approximately 7 of those hours came with a bonus soundtrack of screaming children). The day peaked early with a Posted by Buccas in 2016 - The Year of the Nink | Feb 28, 2016
  • Day 11-12As you probably know, there’s lots of race car talk happens when Oli and JT get together – no changes there. What happened this time is that I needed to get some gear for Targa next year so we headed Posted by EMTHOMSON in JT's 60th Anniversary World Tour | Jan 27, 2016

  • London Day 3Another bitterly cold day, 3OC this morning – yes it is winter, but still not attuned to waking up to darkness as daylight doesn’t happen until after 7.30am, and then it’s dark again at 4.30pm.
