... Castle but after some 'umming' and 'arhhing' and checking of reviews online, Tristan paid our way in. The parklands, waterway and gardens leading were very nice. We here astonished to come across black swans amongst the ducks, geese and white swans. It turns out that the "socialite" who last owned the castle imported them from Australia in the 1950's.

An hour later we got those city bikes again and met Jay at the Earl of Camden pub for 'quiz night' and dinner. Believe it or not, we tied for ...
Yup! On our way home tomorrow and get home Sat evening. In some ways it's hard to believe we've been away so long but in others it feels as if we've been away for about six months or more! So many countries and so many things seen and done. It's been a great experience, certainly a learning curve, at times physically and mentally challenging but a fantastic trip. Would we do it this ...
