  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! So, looking for interesting places enroute from one client to […]

    Old friends, new explorations! A good friend from SA had relocated to Kinsale in Ireland – a country I hadn’t visited yet. I didn’t need more than a few seconds to take up her offer of a visit! Although I only had a few days, I intended making the most of it! Very […]

  With almost 3 weeks break in-between jobs, it’s time to explore, so I’m heading to Bath and Chelmsford.   First stop is Bath, a town known for its natural hot springs and 18th-century Georgian architecture. Honey-coloured Bath stone has been used extensively in the town’s architecture, including Bath Abbey, which has some stunning stained-glass […]

  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).    Please follow and like us:

  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!   Please follow and like us:
