          ... accommodation voucher and driving reference in separate poly pockets, arranged chronologically in one slim, professional-looking file. All for nothing. Because I left it there. On the chair. Eighty miles away at this point. Nothing like a sudden drama to make you reconsider whether it's safe for you to travel halfway across the planet without a ...

An hour long search in a very wet and boggy cemetery did not result in the location of one of Rhe's relatives who died in a fire in Maerdy with her young daughter back in 1909.

          We proceeded down the ...
