    It was memorable for all the wrong reasons. Overpriced. Dreadfully undertrained and inexperienced staff, and for all its quiet country location it was so noisy. No traffic - no noisy talking, just the quacking of 100s of ducks!! And the smell from nearly dry duck ponds was awful. The room was beautifully furnished and very comfortable. They had a quaint idea of providing milk in a communal fridge down the corridor but not once during our stay did we ever find milk, or anyone to replenish the jug. One of my biggest disappointments, but I have to admit to just being really grumpy about the lack of service etc, was the fact that here we were, in beautiful Somerset, in summer, and all the flowers in the rooms and entrance areas were .... plastic. I couldn't believe it. Amazingly they quote rave reviews but I think they need to take a fresh look at themselves. No staff were around from about 8:15 p.m. tll after 7:00 a.m. At £80 per night this was very poor value for money.

    We were woken early by the ducks and guinea fowl so we made an early start to have breakfast in Ilminster. This turned out to be a lovely little town the only downside was that there was nothing open and it was not until 9:00 o'clock that we found somewhere for coffee and breakfast. And even that wasn't simple. Opening hours said it was open at 9: …

    Having read about Gran Paradiso national park early on in the trip I'd bookmarked it as a 'go if possible' I felt I needed just one more taste of fresh air, solitude and wilderness and I'm really pleased I did go because it was lovely. It's near Aosta, close to the border with France and accessed through a small Alpine village at 1545m called Cogne. They had a massive tarmac park for Campers and I was the only one in it. I took a day's hike into the park and ...

    I waited around in the airport for about 5 hours until I boarded my final flight. When I got on, it was extremely quiet, I had a row to myself, as well as the rows surrounding me! The flight was so quiet, it was easy to sleep as everyone had a row to lie down on. I watched a few films, had some naps and are the food and drink that was brought to me. It may have been ...

    ... Said Miss Washington in awe of her guest. "I shall leave you to it." "Thank you." Barney said turning back to his call. "So, how's Benson?" With all of his various dealings done, Barney ended the call to Dubai and found Miss Washington working in the garden. Barney took this opportunity to conduct a little exploring. It didn't take long before he made his first discovery: a toad. "Oh look!" Said Barney to Miss Washington, "Mr Toad has come ...

    ... the Mary Celeste (note not 'Marie' - that was just Conon Doyle sexing the story up) had been a pub then it would have been this pub. I wandered round, no customers, no staff, I even prodding myself to make sure I was there.....I walked around, ah eventually life and Lynn came out and I asked for a sandwich without even glancing at the comprehensive menu....

    Now I'm not the fussiest person alive and I'd rather have a great cheese and onion sandwich than ...
