…You never hear about people cycle-touring in England is because it supremely sucks! The last few days have reminded me of the first few days of touring through the Peak District.  I was struggling and pushing all the time.  However, now ...

And so it all begins, we left Knowle behind at 8.00AM, 1 hour later than planned due to 3 hours sleep the night before! It was a nervous jounrney down the M40 through thick fog, thanks to Rog for the lift. We bought the last few things we needed from ...

With a few extra days before Hamlin needed to fly back to Belgium, we made the decision to fill the time by seeing a little of Wales. It would only be a day and half, so little being the operative word. Leaving Liverpool, we crossed over the border ...

Why Not Fly?

A travel blog entry by foolsgold

This is a top pick!

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 ...

Had a pretty good sleep. Better than Cathy. But we'll be right. June presented us with the most magnificent home-cooked English breakfast on top of a great choice of cereals, fruit and juices not to mention the continuous supply of tea. Once we were able ...

We've come a long way since our first post on Travelpod and, having stayed in 107 different beds during our Big Trip 2010/11, you would think we might be a bit fed up with guest houses? But no! In fact, we decided to turn things on their head a little ...

The day started pretty relaxed. It was nice to not have to leap out of bed early to rush off to the next destination. We had a very nice breakfast at the hotel then wandered over to the bus stop to see where Cathy lived before moving to Australia. ...

I spent most of the week slaving, that's right whip crack, at my Nan's house, doing some decorating for her. Had a great time, and I don't think I could have a better employer. Turned up with a hangover one morning, and she said, don't worry about it go ...

I'm amazed that it's been so quick to arrive, after everything I'd read in the news about the massive backlog of passports being processed at the Passport Office! Maybe mine was done quickly because it was only a simple, straightforward passport renewal, ...

What to say. First we headed out to New York on the good old AA. The usual rituals, packing the luggage and weighing them to get them as close to 23KG as we can (or a bit over). In New York we camped at the BA lounge for a couple of hours before we ...

I've never been a big lover of the south of England, its very flat and uninspiring, southerners can be a strange breed, and in general there seems a lot of hot air about nothing. So with a few days to spare before we sailed on the 12th we were a bit ...
