  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).

  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!

  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 […]
