Travel Blogs from Skipton
So here is our super vague plan for the first few months of travel. The aim is to avoid air travel as much as possible!
7th November - fly into Bangkok, Thailand. Hang out for a few days in the city before spending a relaxing week on the beach near Koh Chang. Then back to Bangkok to hire a card and head north ...
...apart from my own of course... I have a few travel blogs that have inspired and informed me before our trip! http://gellipower.wordpress.com Gelli Power This blog is wrtten by my second cousin (once removed? twice removed? anyway...) documenting her 6 months living in the wilds of Wales.

I'm living for pay day though at the minute. I'm meant to be putting £500 towards the trip, but that's not going to happen. Unfortunately, food and rent comes first.
The £6000 total seems a way off yet, but I'll get there.
Accommodation was at Bramaskew Farm, a genuine family owned farm so comfortable and welcoming we would have loved to stay longer. As we arrived Janet our host was heading down to feed the chooks and we sampled their produce the next morning in the form of beautifully poached eggs. Our boots were dried near the fire overnight and we had a lovely home-cooked meal.
... the end of our steady climb up Wharfdale, flowing east, and the beginnings of Dentdale and the river Dee flowing west.We arrived at the Sportsmans Inn with an hour or so til check-inn, and could have easily pressed on to the village of Dent. But that would have to wait until tomorrow. For now it’s a nice warm bath, pub dinner and sleep to the sound of the nearby river.
How has this hotel rated in the past?
Found some very good eating establishments at very competitive prices. Two main courses for £10.00 was quite common.
