Take Me Out To The Ballgame

With the baseball season all ready to go, time to tell you a story from a couple of years ago. Being in Vegas when the local baseball team is having their season opening stand meant that I was contractually obliged to visit. Some quick thoughts. It was girl scouts fireworks night at the old ball park. I first... Continue Reading →

York Railway Museum

Thinking about it for a second, I don’t think that I’ve been to the National Railway Museum since I was at University. As you all know, I’m a bit of a geek, and as much as I like trains, I would never consider myself to be an expert. I’ve lived with train spotters, and even... Continue Reading →

Take Me Out To The Ballgame

As most of you reading this are aware I’m a bit of a baseball fan. So, being in Vegas when the local baseball team is having their season opening stand meant that I was contractually obliged to visit. Some quick thoughts.

Conversations on Trains Part 2

The more astute of you will have noticed that in my last post the title ended with Part 1. I have three stories about strange conversations on trains but I noticed that the previous post was getting rather long so I took the editorial decision to split it into two parts.

Conversations on Trains Part 1

Sometimes I just want to be left alone. I suppose that I don’t help myself, by answering and talking back, but that was the way... Continue Reading →

It’s almost as if I have planned this… A couple of years ago, I went on a cruise to Norway. One of the highlights was going... Continue Reading →

Cruising

It’s January, so that means that it is time for me to sort out what I want to do as a summer holiday this year. The last couple of summers I’ve gone cruising. The first was to Norway, where I saw very little because of the weather, and last year I spent two weeks floating... Continue Reading →

How Many Times?

When I go on holiday, it begins the moment I close my front door. Why? Because I enjoy the journey and it gets me in the mood for my break. I’m one of those sad people who likes driving on the motorway, or flying, or sitting on a train. I like to travel between places.... Continue Reading →

Monaco

This past summer I went on a cruise around the Mediterranean. There were two main reasons for going. Firstly, with six days at sea (the cruise left and returned to Southampton) I had the opportunity to really relax and catch up with myself. The second reason, was that one of the stops was Monaco. I’ve... Continue Reading →
