Travelling Lightly

When I was planning my recent trip to the UK I toyed with the idea of travelling with just a small backpack, something like I would have used for school.  I was going from town to town, travelling by train or bus or subway, and didn't want to fight with luggage every step of the … Continue reading Travelling Lightly

Day 12 – London

Monday, April 17, 2017 My last and final day of an incredibly amazing trip. As I have been travelling with just a small backpack, I have saved my shopping for this last day so I wouldn't be carrying it on my back everywhere I went.  I did buy a few gifts for family in some … Continue reading Day 12 – London

Day 11 – London

I am finally making time to write my next post - sorry for the delay! Sunday, April 16, 2017 It is Easter Sunday, and as it is a holiday with many places closed or on reduced hours, I took the time this morning to wander about a few places.  One place I wanted to see was 221b Baker Street, home … Continue reading Day 11 – London

Wednesday, April 12, 2017 I will give you fair warning: this is going to be a long posting!

Day 4 – Conisbrough, Scrooby, Bawtry, & Austerfield

Sunday, April 9, 2017 It seemed like the world was content to stay abed on a quiet Sunday morning while I was up and at 'em ready to experience the day. I enjoyed a big Sunday breakfast with what I am sure was the best bacon I have ever had. Big English Breakfast, view from … Continue reading Day 4 – Conisbrough, Scrooby, Bawtry, & Austerfield

Day 3 – Gainsborough and York

On Saturday (April 8, 2017) I arose early to leave London and make my way to the next points on the map.
