... we head out to explore.
We just got back from walking around the area near our apartment. We had dinner and the hostess recognized our accents and told us that she has family in Alberta and it turned out that our waitress was from Ontario!!! We needed a travel adaptor for the computer and met the nicest guy ever at the Apple store. He even looked up an ...
... my way around the place with all the familiar items, pictures and smells I finally broke down as I walked into the third bedroom with the old bunk beds we used when we were little. I have been avoiding thinking about my Grandpas passing but there was no avoiding here. I miss him terribly. But his home will hopefully help me get past this odd sleep cycle I have. (As I write this at 2:45am!!!!!!) I am going to show Dan ...
... paths in a similar direction to the day before. We didn't make the 55km goal for the day only hitting 40km as I wasn't feeling great in the afternoon and we decided to turn around rather than get stuck in the middle of nowhere! We made a good decision as I was still not feeling well enough the next day however after a day off from cycling and a train ride to Liverpool I am ready to get back on the bike :) Rodney, however, did ride Manchester ...
... and the first thurs of every month - all of the bells are tuned to a specific note, they are upside down, the tallest bells in the UK -building of the church began in 1904 and took over 80 years to complete - after three straight days of bombing, in one week Liverpool was processing 86,000 tons of incoming cargo and by a month was back to full capacity despite the bombing - the cavern club was demolished and then rebuilt in the 80's using archeology style ...
Today we continued on from York to the home of the Beatles, Liverpool! Before making our way to the York train station we walked down the river and saw Clifford's tower and made some friends with the local Canadian geese. This tower was the setting of a very sad story. A group of Jews were chased by a mob and took shelter here until deciding to take their own lives instead of renouncing their faith. Once at the York train station we visited ...

Historical Traveler Reviews The Strand Hotel Blackpool
Very friendly staff
we stayed at the strand over christmas . jane partner and staff made us feel very wecome , clean rooms good food & good entertainment, recommended . the chesson & kinsey famlies
We stayed at this Hotel for the New Year Break and had a great time. The public areas, bars and dining room are modern and very clean, the food was excellent and the menu over the three days we were there was varied. The entertainment was good with at least two artists a night and we did not need to leave the hotel if we did not want to as everything was provided. Our fellow hotel guests were all friendly which made for an excellent stay. The staff could not do enough to help to make your stay enjoyable especially Aaron and Jane(the owners i think). The bedrooms are basic but are in the process of being modernised and refurbished which when complete will make this hotel hard to beat. We have already booked for New Year 2007 and look forward to another enjoyable and relaxing stay.
Strand Hotel- recommended
Stayed over Xmas. The staff, the food, the entertainment and the atmosphere were all excellent. Little touches, like quality Christmas crackers and presents and tea, coffee and cake being available 24 hours added to the high standard. Rooms need some work but renovation will be complete in the next few months. Would certainly return.

Definitely going back!!
I don't normally post reviews on such websites but after reading the last
review find myself in state of shock. I stayed at this hotel last week and
had a fantastic time along with the remainder of the guests, or so it
seemed! I am flabbergasted at such a review and I know the rest of my family
will be also. The food was excellent, entertainment was so good we never
even left the place at night
and as for the rooms, I couldn't fault ours at
all and we had a "bog standard" family room! Clean and comfortable and Ive
stayed in a few!! I will be looking to stay in Blackpool next Easter and
will certainly be booking the same hotel.
Would not recommed! go somewhere else!
ok, this hotel as had obvious improvements, that is, reception bar area, lounge ,dining area etc.. and by the last persons review some nice rooms... but dont expect this thoughout the hotel... my room (108) was a very small double, that had not seen any upgrade in many years, tv / heating didnt work , wonderful views of the back yard etc.. all for the princly sum of £90!!! as i said.. try somewhere else first...
