  • A week in LondonWow, what a week we have had. It has continued at the same pace it started. We have done all the main hot spots and Monopoly board walks/roads and sights. The kids have been blown away by the buildings and Posted by Mosairamble in The Mosai Ramble | Dec 10, 2018
  • Sharing London With Good FriendsOur last day in London was going to be busy, we were meeting our friends Jocke and Eva Alspund from Sweden. Jocke and our daughter-in-law-Bekki are cousins. I’ve written about them before, we met on Facebook, then in Finland 2 Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Dec 8, 2018
  • The London Eye and Westminster AbbeyFinally, a free day in England. We’d planned to go to Stonehenge and Avebury today. I wanted to see both sites but without a car, we needed to take a tour. A tour would have been fine except that strong winds Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Dec 6, 2018
  • One More Performance, Les MisWe had a few stops to make today before this evenings performance. I had to get to a camera shop. Just before we left home I found that my lens cover was missing. It had been Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Dec 2, 2018
  • London TownA marathon 24hr travel day flying via Zurich with a 4hr stop over was hard work. Swiss air was amazing tho. Turns out Lexi doesn't sleep well on planes but luckily got a couple of hours in the terminal waiting Posted by Mosairamble in The Mosai Ramble | Dec 5, 2018
  • The Tower then Royal Albert Hall1st a walk to the Tower of London. Last year I’d missed seeing where Anne Boleyn lost her head and since I’ve read several books on the wives of Henry the 8th I did want to see both where she Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Dec 1, 2018
  • 1 Night, 2 Concerts in LondonAfter a full day of walking yesterday, we were tired and decided that with 2 concerts tonight, back to back, we’d take it a bit easy. We have never been to Westminster Abbey so decided to stop there to see about Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Nov 30, 2018
  • Shopping, Walking and a Concert in LondonOur first plan for today included over 9 miles of walking, but we soon figured out that it wasn’t going to be realistic. I’d found online that The Tesco Superstore had wines that were our every day at home and we Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Nov 27, 2018
  • Viva España Riviera!The view out of our window was downright nutty. It was a gorgeous sunrise coming up just to the south of the Rock of Gibraltar. In the foreground were a dozen container loading cranes lining the edge of Posted by bendurbin in DurbsAbroad | Nov 27, 2018
  • A Visit to ParliamentAfter a train ride from Winchester, we arrived in London. We love London, it is bustling with people and this time of year is completely Christmas. It was early but we got our room, dropped our stuff and set out for Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Nov 24, 2018
  • Downton Abbey aka: Highclere CastleWe have been Downton Abbey fans since it began, had Downton dinners, 7-9 course dinners, hired kitchen help complete with aprons, and of course dressed the part. So today, after buying tickets to visit 2 other times, we were really Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Nov 22, 2018
  • Sightseeing in Winchester EnglandWe’d planned to go to Stonehenge and Avebury today, as it appeared on the map to be closer to Winchester than London. I looked up tickets and could not find an easy way to get to both places, so we Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Nov 21, 2018
  • A Day Trip to ChawtonI love Jane Austen, I’ve read her books over and over. Poor Dale has watched every movie based on her books with me. So seeing that Winchester was close to where she lived and wrote, we had to go. Fortunately, the Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Nov 20, 2018
  • How the Other Half Live in LondonAfter a warm and sunny start to our time in London, a cold easterly wind swept in with rain and forced us inside. But where better to be than in our local store – Harrods. In 1840 Charles Henry Harrod Posted by Hawkson in Blissful Adventures | Nov 20, 2018
  • Winchester and the Great HallIt was the performance going tonight that brought us to Winchester. When we decided on London and the concerts we wanted to see we also checked out the Globe. We’d had such a great time at the Globe that we Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Nov 19, 2018
  • Day 1 in WinchesterThe plane ride was good, a picnic with complimentary wine and cheese and crackers that I’d brought were a great way to start the flight. After customs, we found the Posted by Miss Chris in Grandma on The Go | Nov 18, 2018
  • West Sussex WanderingsOur B&B near Chichester and Bognor Regis is lovely and very comfortable. We have a great breakfast each morning and today our host even did a load of washing for us. On our first night we headed to a local Posted by Holdensam in UK, Cruising & Christmas Markets | Nov 18, 2018
  • Last minute BombayAfter an atrocious disembarkation (an hour spent standing around in the overcrowded dining room for our "priority express" disembarkation) we took a taxi to the airport to pick up our little Citroën C3. We were probably fleeced by the cabbie Posted by Holdensam in UK, Cruising & Christmas Markets | Nov 18, 2018
  • The West of EnglandAnother rushed time as we only do 1 night stops. Left Bath on Thurday and arrive and David's for lunch , both of them made us very welcome and after lunch took us on a tour of their beloved Chilters Posted by oldnick in My bucket list | Nov 16, 2018
  • Top of The Rock (of Gibraltar)An early start for us today - our tour meeting time was 8:15, so that meant an alarm was needed, just to be sure! We awoke to a misty (and slightly chilly) morning - very different from what we'd gotten Posted by Holdensam in UK, Cruising & Christmas Markets | Nov 14, 2018
  • BathIt's a nice day so we bus into town and go walkabout, surprising what I remember and I only check Google to check my bearings. Showed Marie around town and through the Abbey area and all the streets and alleys Posted by oldnick in My bucket list | Nov 7, 2018
  • YorkWe have returned to Manchester now after a lovely couple of days in York with Liz & Paul. On our first afternoon, they took us down for a scenic cruise along the Ouse. We braved the chill wind and sat Posted by Holdensam in UK, Cruising & Christmas Markets | Nov 2, 2018
  • Up to the Dragon’s Back - Woodbridge to WalesI haven’t written much on here thus far. The last 3 weeks have flown by with such utter speed I can’t quite believe it. We’re now parked up behind a community pub in a tiny Welsch town called Cwmdu after Posted by GittadeRidder in 'To Our Children' travellers | Oct 29, 2018
  • Heading NorthYesterday morning we picked up our little red Suzuki Swift and hit the road. Andrew managed to find his way out of Manchester and onto the motorway as we headed north towards Newcastle. It was a pretty uneventful trip and Posted by Holdensam in UK, Cruising & Christmas Markets | Oct 30, 2018
  • Manchester MedleyOut & About We started our day buying some weekend travel passes for the Metrolink trams, which went from Piccadilly station right across the road from our hotel.
