    London to Bangkok

    September 1, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 18 °C

    The long awaited start to our Asia trip! And 'Long' was definitely the word to describe today. 3 flights with stops in Amsterdam and Guangzhou (China), serious bum ache from sitting down for so long, and completely confused about what time it was and whether our beef noodles were breakfast or dinner.Read more

    May 29, 2019 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    A week's rest and recovery in England. Jess's birthday celebrations, wedding dress shopping, walking and developing films. It was great to see everyone and eat and drink a lot, especially enjoying quite a few wines and beers!

    The Dark Hedges

    October 12, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 11 °C

    This road was planted with beech trees to make a dramatic entrance to the manor house at the end. Now it is one of the most photographed places in Ireland, especially since being used for filming scenes in Game of Thrones. We were lucky again to arrive when there was lots of sunshine but not many people.Read more

    Carrick-a-rede rope bridge

    October 12, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Not sure what we thought when we bought the tickets for a 100 feet (30metres) high rope bridge. Tom was quite good actually but I needed to be lead over by the ticket man. I was the most pathetic among elderlies and kids, was just looking up to the sky while crossing, one man clapped...

    Dunseverick Castle

    October 12, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Not much of a castle these days but what's left is in a pretty spectacular place. We managed to climb up without too much complaining and spent a while enjoying the views and the T-shirt weather (!) At the top. But not too close to the edge!

    Bushmills Distillery

    October 12, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ☀️ 12 °C

    Interesting tour and whiskey tasting at Bushmills Distillery, the oldest in Ireland. Whiskey is a cheater it steals other drinks flavour and colour from the barrel, which was used before for rum/cherry/bourbon/port. Also those trees are black which are around the distillery so the police could easily discover the secret whisky making places in the forest. Vera really doesn't like whiskey, even if its 12 years old.Read more

    Giant's Causeway

    October 11, 2016 in the United Kingdom ⋅ ⛅ 12 °C

    Unbelievable place, very very strange and mysterious. We were really lucky to be almost the only people there and spent ages taking millions of photos and exploring the stepping stones.
