The question I pose as the title to this entry is a difficult one for me to answer. The reason I posed the question is that I found myself feeling slightly cheated after visiting York. It was a city that I had been looking forward to explore for a while. ...

It's not going to be cheap to do it this way round. Especially when you consider that a round the world flight can be as cheap as 650 these days. And it's not, as many people suspect, that we're scared of flying. Quite the opposite. In fact, I get ...
