Seeing the City of Culture with new eyes #1 – first time visit to the UK.

Posted on August 27, 2018 by Sioux under General

  With my assignment complete, I was looking forward to an enjoyable break. I had accommodation arranged at a lovely little flatlet with everything we needed for the time we were there.   Paul had spent a few days in London with his brother and was now headed north to Liverpool. After meeting up with […]

Same territory, new eyes.

  I had a few days to spare between finishing work in Liverpool and starting at my next assignment, and had managed to secure a ticket to watch my favourite team playing at their home ground!   That plus the fact that Paul had planned an impromptu trip to the UK, to see his brother […]

  I had a 2 week assignment back in Liverpool, but with the weather being cold and wet, I didn’t venture out too much. I had much to look forward to, once the assignment was done. I had managed to obtain a ticket to a football game at Anfield; aswell as Paul having planned a […]

  Scouring Google maps is an excellent way of making new discoveries! I found Warwick Castle, which was not far from where I was staying.   As it was raining softly but steadily, I headed to the station and took myself off to Warwick for the day.                  […]

  It was raining when I awoke, so I had a leisurely breakfast and then headed out, suitably attired. A fairly long walk to my destination; but pleasant in the cool air once the rain stopped.  The beautiful 500 year old cottage set in idyllic surrounds, is a 12-roomed farmhouse where  Anne Hathaway, the wife of William […]

People usually are the happiest at home – Stratford upon Avon #2

Posted on August 5, 2018 by Sioux under General

  I slept in, had a late breakfast and after a quick pit-stop at The Encore, a restaurant in an 18th century building, I went to meet my tour-host. We had arranged to meet at the most appropriate venue – The Royal Shakespeare Theater. Having not been able to go in the previous day, I […]

The fool wanders. A wise man travels! – Stratford-Upon-Avon #1

Posted on August 2, 2018 by Sioux under General

  With a four day break between jobs, I planned a trip to Stratford-Upon-Avon. It’s a beautiful area and of course historically important as the birthplace of William Shakespeare, widely considered to be the greatest playwright of all time. I also know a theater aficionado who lives there, and he had agreed to take me […]
