Debbie and I love to travel. Together we have been to various place in the UK, Europe and the USA on vacation.

I lived in the USA for 15 years prior to returning to the UK in 2019, and previously lived in New Zealand for 9 months back in 1987-88. I have also been to a number of countries in Central & South America for work, as well as the Caribbean, Kenya and Papua New Guinea.

We both have the travel bug, here are some recollections about the places that we have visited.

Spend a day wandering the streets in Christchurch with it’s historic Priory church, or drive through The New Forest, and see horses, cattle and deer wandering free. There is so much to do in the Bournemouth area. Come visit soon.

A Walk In The New Forest

A walk in The New Forest is something that ought to appeal to anyone who loves walking in the English countryside. The New Forest is one of the local areas where both Debbie and I love to go walking. It’s a lovely area, with a lot of history, and plenty […]

The End Of A Short Era

Tomorrow I head back to work, starting a new contract after three months of being unemployed, and so apart from weekends, today marked the last time I expect to be able to take my morning walk around Deer Creek. I have really enjoyed getting out of bed in the morning, […]
