To sleep. Perchance to dream! – Time out in Stratford-Upon-Avon

Posted on July 28, 2018 by Sioux under Green Door

    I had booked at a lovely B&B close to the station and not too far to walk into town.   My view wasn’t much and the room was small, but I had no intentions of spending much time indoors, so it didn’t bother me at all.   The place was clean, the hosts […]

  Travel in the UK is generally quite easy and I’ve decided rather than going back to the same “in-between-jobs-residence” all the time, I’m going to take advantage of trains and busses and do what I set out to do 3 years ago – travel!

New horizons, new adventures!

  After my 3 week assignment in Liverpool, I was looking forward to a 10 day break, spending time with friends in London that I’ve not seen for years, and renewing some training certification. Alas the time with friends was not to be. My anticipated 3-hour train trip from Liverpool became a 13 hour nightmare […]
