England is now better known for vibrant cities with great nightlife and attractions, contrasted with green and pleasant countryside. It's said that Ireland, once visited, is never forgotten; the landscape has a mythic resonance, the country's history is almost tangible, and its people seem put on earth expressly to restore faith in humanity. Wales is just what you picture it to be: rolling moorlands, tongue-twisting place names, Rugby Union... But also fantastic walking, cycling, fishing, water and adventure sports as well as some fine festivals. Scotland's' people are feisty, opinionated and fiercely loyal. The countryside is a wild, beautiful tumble of raw mountain peaks and deep glassy lakes.

Harry Potter and the Last Hurrah

Fri, 9 Jun 2017 | By the_koetsys | Views [9]

After driving along the extraordinarily scenic west side of Loch Ness on our way to Fort William, we took a detour to a place named Glenfinnan to view the Glenfinnan Viaduct. This particular viaduct has been made famous by the Harry Potter films. As ... Read more >

The North Coast 500

Wed, 7 Jun 2017 | By the_koetsys | Views [19]

I discovered the North Coast 500 route quite by accident whilst scouring the internet for places to visit and roads to travel in the north of Scotland. The route takes you on a clockwise circuit of north Scotland, commencing and finishing in Inverness.... Read more >

Isle of Skye

Sun, 4 Jun 2017 | By the_koetsys | Views [16]

I would have liked to have titled this story "Blue Blue Skye" but given the brooding dark clouds and bursts of rain, it didn't seem quite right. Allow me to tell you that this place is breathtakingly beautiful. Unfortunately, it seems that the ... Read more >

Thursday 1st June - Malta to Birmingham to Martlesham Heath

Sun, 4 Jun 2017 | By paulfirman | Views [41]

Overnight we have arrived back in Malta, from where we will fly home later today. It is an early start for us as we have to be out of our room by 8am. However our suitcases have already been taken and the next time we see them will be at Birmingham Airport.... Read more >

The Loch Ness Monster

Sat, 3 Jun 2017 | By the_koetsys | Views [27]

Rather than drive around Loch Ness, we decided to take a cruise for about an hour. Well worth it as the commentary on the boat was very informative. I can also tell you that a south south west wind blowing down the Loch has one reaching for thick coats.... Read more >

Castling

Sat, 3 Jun 2017 | By the_koetsys | Views [29]

This part of our journey is designated as the castle exploration phase.  Potentially three days of inspecting some of Scotland's myriad castles. We travelled to the car rental headquarters to pick up our car, only to discover that our special ... Read more >

Wednesday 31st May - A very welcome day at sea

Thu, 1 Jun 2017 | By paulfirman | Views [45]

We awoke very late this morning and had a leisurely breakfast before a few laps of the promenade deck. Whilst sitting on our balcony we had several Sea Turtles come past us enjoying the warm sunshine and calm seas. It is almost eerie this morning as ... Read more >

Tuesday 30th May - Now we can see why Rome was not built in a day!

Thu, 1 Jun 2017 | By paulfirman | Views [40]

We got up fairly early this morning and were greeted with yet another glorious sunny warm Italian day in the port of Civitavecchia, the port for Rome. After a good breakfast it was soon time to join our tour "Rome On Your Own". On the bus was Veronica ... Read more >

Edinburgh - the Venice of the UK

Wed, 31 May 2017 | By the_koetsys | Views [21]

Is it a strange title? I suppose so, but why l titled this story as such will become evident soon enough. Like many European cities, Edinburgh had an old town and a more modern, larger part. The city is dominated by the castle which can be seen ... Read more >

British Airways and Novatel

Wed, 31 May 2017 | By the_koetsys | Views [38]

Every trip starts with an expectation of adventure. Perhaps adventure is not an appropriate description of the circumstances that befell us on this occasion. As many would be aware, British Airways had an IT malfunction that saw BA flights cancelled ... Read more >

Monday 29th May - Coincidences and The Leaning Tower of Pisa

Tue, 30 May 2017 | By paulfirman | Views [65]

Again the sun was shining as we woke up in La Spezia, in the Ligurian area of Italy between Genoa and Pisa. What a surprise we had when the phone rang just after breakfast and it was Norma and Bernard, two very dear friends of ours from Bolton who we ... Read more >

Mon, 29 May 2017 | By paulfirman | Views [55]

By the time we woke up at 7.30am we had already dropped anchor in the bay of Villefranche, and 900 passengers from our ship were on their way to the Monaco Grand Prix taking place nine miles down the coast. We decided to head in the other direction! ... Read more >

Saturday 27th May - Ajaccio, Corsica or should that be Napoleonville?

Sun, 28 May 2017 | By paulfirman | Views [51]

We arrived very early into Ajaccio, the sun shining on the stone buildings around the port. A delicious breakfast and we were on our way to explore a little bit of Corsica. The first thing we saw was a big, yellow, double decker, open-top bus offering ... Read more >
