Why Not Fly?, Nottingham, United Kingdom travel blog

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 ...

A travel blog entry by piholland

This is a top pick!

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 ...

Well its time for an update! To be honest back in February we were exhausted, tired of travelling, tired of writing and as strange as it may sound, craving for a bit of routine for a change of pace! The illness that I picked up in Loas had left me pretty ...

Well here it is, our final day on the Coast to Coast walk. Cathy and I slept well until the rooster next door started crowing at 4.20am. Not the ideal start, but we are all excited so there was plenty of nervous energy. Despite that, there is a sense of ...
