Solo Travel x Group Travel: A comparative study

Sat, 30 Jul 2016 | By keziakos | Views [179]

Crossing the Channel

Wed, 20 Jul 2016 | By john_and_lynne | Views [52]

I've been crossing the English Channel/La Manche since I was 20 years old back in the 1970's. The crossing hasn't changed very much except for the introduction of the Chunnel under the Straits of Dover back in the 90's. Odd to think this great engineering ... Read more >

The Journey of a thousand miles

Tue, 5 Jul 2016 | By claire_missy | Views [91]

This story began in Cork Airport and now, on the second leg of the journey in Heathrow, the two airports are as different as can be. Cork Airport so small,  it could fit Heathrow, maybe five or six times over? That may be an exaggeration. Cork Airport ... Read more >
