Where better to have some total R&R than in the mountains! A week in the Drakensberg is just what’s needed! Perhaps I’ll find a cave I can retire to, while I’m out and about! (Images courtesy of Google).

Its April 2017, my first full year away from home has come to an end, and I have 6 weeks of well needed R&R ahead of me! I’m starting in Qatar this time round, and then heading home to SA. Looking forward to spending some quality time with family and friends. In the […]
Time to catch up with old friends, swop tales and swill beer. What better place to do it in than Canterbury, a cathedral city in southeast England, which ironically was a pilgrimage site in the Middle Ages. Ancient walls, originally built by the Romans, encircle its medieval centre with cobbled streets and timber-framed […]
Rye is an English town near the coast in East Sussex. Streets that are lined with medieval, half-timbered house and a 14th-century Ypres Tower will make for some fabulous photography opportunities. A fabulous way to spend my birthday week!
My brother stays in Hungary and has been after me for ages to come and visit and meet my four year old niece, so that was one definite. “What day is it?” asked Pooh. “Today!” squeaked Piglet. “My favourite day!” said Pooh. And what a day for me it is too!! This trip started off […]
Time for a break from caring again, and this time it’s off to the Gloucester countryside for me. I’ll be staying with a good friend and his wife, for a week. Looking forward to meeting Mrs M and spending time catching up with Mr M! Also ex-pats, we’ll have loads of home stories […]
And so, after 9 years, Anfield here I come again! One of my best friends is a Liverpudlian and time in Liverpool with him and his family is a must do, and of course a game to be watched aswell as a visit to my teams’ homeground and hopefully get some autographs. […]
Newcastle-upon-Tyne – even the name sounds like a holiday destination! Through social media, one of my daughters got back in touch with a school friend who is now resident in the UK, in Newcastle-upon-Tyne, to be precise, and I got invited to spend a week there! I cannot wait! Besides catching up with […]
Being as how I will be in London this weekend, I figure I may as well start test driving the pubs, and Covent Gardens is a brill place to start! With that in mind, the Nell Gwynne, one of Britian’s oldest pubs, is my first port-of-call! Apparently there has been a pub on this […]
Enroute to the UK and one of the coldest winters in many moons, I am stopping over to see my daughter and her family in the land of sand – Qatar. A return visit for me, hopefully this time the weather will be cooler than before, being as how the northern hemisphere is heading […]
