    We stayed there for four days and had a lot of fun with the other tourists. It is close to the city centre (walking distance) and the staff is really friendly and it's cheap and clean. The bathroom's are a bit small and I would not buy the breakfast because it's expensive for not much. Rather buy some stuff and prepare it in the kitchen.

    Flew through the night by the light of a full moon, above the Arctic Circle, over the tip of Iceland and down to the British Isles. Opened the shade of our plane to a warm, soft sun flowing over a collage of primary colors...the blue, blue sea, pitched red roofs and some of the greenest rolling hills I've ever seen- and I'm from Oregon!

    ... going up. It didn't help that Richie's knee became sore from his operation and my hips and knees both became sore, not to mention the muscle fatigue but despite all that we had made it. First time for me, 2nd time for Rich and we are proud of each other for doing it. At the bottom we stopped and spoke to a chap who was involved with a charity. It turned out that a very impressive 3 summit challenge in 24 hours was taking place by 24 teams of firemen..OMG, fit or what. They were ...

    ... overly theatrical air of the tour, it was very interesting to see the layout of the old city. So dark, dank and smelly apparently with up to 12 people per room and only one toilet bucket.

    There was also a medium who visited this close in 1992 and said that one of the rooms contained a little girl ghost who had been abandoned during the plague and who had lost her doll. Since then people who visit bring toys and there is an entire chest full of them. Creepy stuff.

    ... gift.

    Entering Wales we saw the second of our motorway 'hiccups' in Frank (our pet name for the van) as a loud rattling noise began whilst coming round a round-a-bout. Holding our breath and audibly praying to our little plastic Jesus that our gearbox hadn't packed in after only 600 miles, we pulled over to the hard shoulder. After a tense minute of turning the wheel back and forth whilst PM crawled about underneath ...
