Lola Cat – Family, Friend, Pet…

To say that Lola has been with me through the best and worst times is a understatement. She became one of the most important and consistent things in my life and has been there when needed. She has always acted like more of a dog cat, a Lo-Dog. I say that in she was so friendly, liked belly rubs and always wanted to be with you when you were in the house. She’d follow you round and always sit with you, understanding when you were ill, happy or sad. She had a unique little face and silver tanned coat which meant she looked unique and not like other cats. I can’t imagine she won’t be here anymore. It might seem a little emotional for a cat but she was more than that to me and I hope everyone that met her. Rest in peace Lola Puff.

BBC Travel International – Are we missing out?

To not be able to see a BBC commercially funded web site unless you are abroad seems really odd. If I was pitching my site and said i was going to exclude 60 million people as they lived in the UK and therefore were not international i’d be shot down in flames by the investor. Especially when the site is in English!

Favourite Train Journey’s

Not sure what it is about train journeys that make them so amazing, I even don’t mind commuting by train. The key to a successful train journey is a good seat, who you are with and what you are looking at out the window. There is something amazing about being able to get on something that can can take you 100’s of miles without having to queue and go through security or drive it yourself. I guess if i could my preference would be to walk but it would take me forever, so this is the next best thing. So with this in mind i have travelled where i can by train and these are my favourite train journeys to date.

The Best Coastline in England?

My family lives on what can only be one of the best coastlines in England if not Europe, the Dorset coastline.  To be more precise around Poole and Bournemouth.  You can get here by train and is around 2 hours from London.  The Sandbanks peninsula is one of the most expensive areas to live in […]

Fly Me To The Moon

I don’t think this will happen in my lifetime but this is the number 1 experience on the bucket list, visit space.  This is the ultimate getting away from it all and a way of changing perspective on life.  I thought i’d have a look around and see if there were any ways i could do […]

The Bucket List Done?

Over the last few years i have really stepped up and visited many the places I have always wanted to see. I can’t say any of these are original but they have all delighted in some way. Below were the key places i have always wanted to visit and have over the last ten years. Every blog needs a bucket list post doesn’t it? But a done one?
