Exciting Times

Hey Everyone Just a quick one today to say a few thank yous, especially to all of you who have been reading our Paris story and have offered your congratulations on our engagement!

Paris – Part Two

There is a useful app available to travellers in the city called Next Stop Paris, which became our bible when navigating around the Metro. Over all, I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting, as it gives specific instructions of changes to make to get yourself from A to B, has a user friendly interface,... Continue Reading →

Walking: Goathland

Sunday nights in the 90s involved surviving the horror of Songs of Praise and the Antiques Roadshow (the theme tunes to which still send shivers down my spine), taking the weekly bath, then settling down to Last of the Summer Wine and whatever BBC One or ITV drama was currently snaring the millions of viewers with only four channels to choose between.

Walking: Kilburn and Byland – Attack of the Big Bloody Bull

Sammy and I lived in Wiltshire for a while, and at one point we were located very near to the white horse at Westbury. There are sixteen of these enormous horses carved into hillsides around the country, mainly in the south of England (including eight in Wiltshire alone), so they are a sight that we...
