So i am all packed up, after having to re-pack my case only once, and am ready to go. For those who asked for the details, I fly today at 2.50pm to Abu Dhabi where I have a 2 hour layover before the next flight to KL. I arrive in KL local time at approx 1.50pm on Wednesday. I am to be collected from the airport and then taken to the hotel where I will be staying until i find a lovely new ...
All packed and ready to go, we headed down to the train station. We caught the 9:45 from Wool to Poole, where we then picked up the coach to London Heathrow. I dropped Lucy off at the station entrance and left her looking like a bag lady for fifteen minutes while I dumped the car back at home then had a brisk walk back to the station. Our 3396 mile trip to the Big Apple has begun... South West trains did us proud ...
... amazing backdrop. We travelled on to London where we said goodbye to most of the group. We arranged to meet the rest of the travellers for a drink in the bar of the hotel we were staying at. One drink led to another and we ended up having dinner with Brad and Tammy. We enjoyed a lovely meal and heaps of laughter. Emails have been exchanged and hoping our paths cross ...
... Mary Rose museum (to be highly recommended). Returning via the Victory (Nelsons Ship) we try to recreate a photo Chris & I has taken some 55 years ago when our parents took us to see the Victory...Just got to find the original to see how close we were!
Another highlight, little Oli, our 4 year old grand nephew, what a delightful ...
... to the Plough & Horses on Walshes Lane to witness another England débâcle. Our boys managed to sweat a draw from a promising position. "Don't panic!" should have been the order of the second half, but our boys showed their usual penchant for tortuous drama.
Another very cold night ensued to add to the pain of a solitary World Cup point! Life can be so hard!

TravelPod Member ReviewsThe Cloud Hotel Brockenhurst
We stayed here with a group of friends and the welcome we received and the attention to detail from the lovely owner and her staff was the best we have ever had as a group. Everyone knew who we were, who was stopping when and how many were in for dinner etc.
The hotel is spotless and the food excellent and plentiful. We had a smaller room on the top floor lovely views with a very small shower room but adequate for the purpose. Others in our group had larger first floor rooms with a bath.
The other residents were elderly but do not let the fact that these folk know a good thing and return year after year put you off!
