In a word..nightmare !!! We arrived and they told us they had no record of our reservation, they eventually realised that they had misspelt our name even though we emailed it to them. We were then taken to our room by the young man that was at reception. We asked him where the car park was and he said the street was fine. On asking where the nearest Metro station was he pointed in the direction and said 10 minutes walk and then disappeared. The best was yet to come ! After sleeping on a sloping bed (sore back for the next three days !!) despite the rowdy return of our man from reception and his mates from a night out we went next door to the actual hotel for breakfast. A room full of young women from a hen's night swearing and yelling about their adventures the night before as the manager sat and listened intently. Breakfast wasn't bad, but we ate quickly to make a quick exit. Checked out to find a dog on heat behind the reception counter and the manager, who had also cooked breakfast, gave her another pat. She apologised for the loud behaviour of the women in the breakfast room and we left. When we were looking for accomodation we looked up websites etc. for places we were looking at staying. Bewick Hotel boasted car parking facilities, a bar and restaurant. We didn't see any evidence of any !! The stay here really left a negative impression of the city.

... 40 it's Llandudno and by 50 it's the horrors of The Chelsea Flower Show (spare me please) A bit has changed since Every Han. I'm in a relationship now and a graduate. Two years of student loans and full time nightshift work means moneywise I'm better than before, despite having spent literally thousands this year.
In Every Han I experienced one of the coldest cities on earth, this time I'm eating my way through one of the hottest (not Eindhoven!)

However Quayside is very impressive especially The Millennium Bridge which moves up at certain times during the day. An engineering wonder! Took a look at the Baltic (Museum of Contemporary Art) and the Sage (Music Hall) before collecting Andrew's car and driving to Blanchland through the Pennines - what a barren area it is on the higher parts - can just imagine it snow covered in winter. Our lunch venue was ...
We leave Woodbridge and head to the coast visiting a couple of little towns along the way, Pretty scary roads but beautiful countryside. We make our way north and end up in Sunderland for the night which is on the coast. It raining and almost blizzard conditions when we arrive and very difficult to find accommodation, Eventually we get some and then rooms had to change because wifi wouldn't work, Enjoyed some nice fish and chips int he new ...
... are excluded from many sites), controls, higher costs and many people travelling long distances to their favourite sites. Many of the private sites are clearly of a different class with people camping much closer to their homes, utilising a creative range of vehicles and tents and even hanging up their washing! Washing machines are few and far between. Not sure if this means that we are dirtier than the Aussies or don't stay away from home for as long. So far we ...
... still listening to their stories. They were from Glasgow. One of the ladies was obsessed and very proud of Glasgow and reminded us regularly our holiday wouldn't be complete if we didn't visit Glasgow. It was also interesting to get their perspective on the current political debate in Scotland. 1 old biddy is voting Yes and the other is voting no. Very interesting to see the outcome.
Toby said he slept ok. I got no sleep as our ...
