Jun 28, 2012 - Bath, England & Stonehenge

We were amazed at the size of the ancient baths complex. Fed by 3 hot springs (115 degrees) it was used before the Romans invaded Bath, around 43 AD. During the Roman period grand temples and bathing complexes were built in the area. The audio tour was interesting and helpful but our time limit didn't allow us to hear all of the information. During our 75 min. of free time another couple went with us to walk to see Pultney Bridge (with shops on it) and then on to see the Circus and the Royal Crescent. These stately neoclassical row houses...

Apr 11, 2012 - England - Stonehenge & Bath

4th & 5th April 2012 What is better in life than food and a little retail therapy, and boy have we done both of them to death. Now that we have our car, there are a lot bits and pieces that we require for our holiday. Things like a small esky, a picnic set, thermos (here we go thinking about our stomachs again) a few tools for the car (we also needed light deflectors for the headlights as we were driving a LHD car on the right side of the road) and a warm jacket for each of us. Thank goodness Mark is still on school holidays as he took us...

Feb 17, 2012 - Bath

We had a 10am appointment to go and see the Delaware and were quite excited at the prospect. After our research we had decided we were going to get the new one minus the VAT. David had been over the specifications and had rung the tax department to get the rules on the VAT clarified. After drooling over it for a while we paid a deposit, signed the paperwork and set the process in motion to take possession late next week. It is an awesome vehicle with bells and whistles and Sue and I can’t wait to get it out on the road. It was now about...

Dec 6, 2011 - Cannes to Switzerland

In Cannes we spent most of our time down by the water although it was not really swimming weather. We enjoyed a nice lunch on the beach. We weren't to upset when they said there was a half an hour wait for a table as we got to sit on beach chairs drinking wine and the day was divine. It was a good place to visit but maybe not some where we we would rush back to. There was a lot of money in Cannes. The size of some of the yachts was staggering and you can't afford to walk into a lot of the shops. We ended up staying a bit longer in Cannes...

Oct 20, 2011 - Off to Europe

I've not been able to add any photos yet as I've used up my monthly allowance. So you must remember to look back at this entry at a later date to see if we have added them. We got off the ship in Southampton last Friday and spent one night there. Where there wasn't really much to see. The next day we caught a train back to Bath to pick up a car and by that night we were back in Calais France where we spent 2 nights. It still seems weird that you can get to another country so fast. From there we drove to Reims in the Champagne Region. Here...

Oct 17, 2011 - Queen Mary 2

Hello everybody. I am going to try and provide an update on the Queen Mary 2 voyage. We have tried two times already but we lost it. Anyhow here goes. " The sea was angry that day my friends. Like an old man sending back soup at a deli." ( Quote from Seinfeld, for those that think I am on drugs) When we left our New York lodgings in Times Square we decided to catch the subway to Brooklyn and make out way to the terminal. ( This being the cheaper option and me being a little on the cheap side) That's what Sally called me when we decided to...

Oct 17, 2011 - The Big Apple

We spent 6 nights in New York. We stayed in Time Square right on Broadway. One of the first things I have to say say is that there are lots of Australians in NY! We caught the bus from Washington to NY. The people we sat near on the bus where from Australia. When we got off the bus we had to walk from 34th St to 52nd St and naturally it started to rain. We tried to get a cab but because it wasn't that far they didn't want to take us. When we got in the lift at our hotel we met a couple from Sydney. At one point during our stay I was waiting...

Oct 16, 2011 - Washington

We caught the train from Florida to Washington DC. What an experience. We arrived to catch the train in a small town called Kissimmee. It was like stepping into an alternate universe. It really was 3 head territory. First we were told that the train was running 3 hours late. Then when we tried to check our bags in we were told they were to heavy and we had to unpack the access into boxes that we then had to repack when we got to Washington. We were lucky enough to find a cafe near the station where we could get some southern chicken wings...

Oct 16, 2011 - Disney world

Disney World!! We had a great time at Disney World .When we arrived the check in desk had about 15 people working there and we were directed to a girl who turned out to be from Newcastle. Small world!! We spent 4 very busy days at Disney world. We had 4 parks to visit. We arrived on Saturday at about 11am so we decided to tackle the smallest park first, Animal Kingdom. We were surprises at the size of the park. We thought that they would be a lot bigger. We had been told that Disney world was bigger then Newcastle and bigger than Manhattan...

Oct 8, 2011 - Bath

The bus ride there was easy enough, the aloneness had started to sink in, especially as I walked to my hostel YMCA bath by myself. I was excited to explore bath as I could tell even from my short walk through the centre to my hostel that it was a very enchanting place. I was able to get myself a private room which I was very happy about, I got in the late evening so I was keen to settle into my new abode. The room was nice, newly refurbished with a desk, sink, bed, wardrobe. The hallway smelt like weird eggs but my room was awesome so I was...

Oct 3, 2011 - Disney cruise

What can we say about the Disney cruise other than it was magical. We had such an amazing time. Jamie especially. So much that he did't want to get off even though we were heading to Disney world. We boarded in Barcelona and set sail late at night which was a bit disappointing as they had the sale away party in the afternoon. So when we actually left there was no one on deck so it was a bit anti-climatic. It was very different from the Australian cruises the main difference being that no one seemed to be drinking at the parties. We sailed...

Oct 3, 2011 - Barcelona

We travelled from Paris to Barcelona on the train. The first train we went on was TVG from Paris to the border of Spain. The train travels at about 300km/h. A bit to fast. None of us ever get motion sickness but on this we all felt a bit off. Apparently it is because when you look out the window you can see that you are going fast but you body doesn't feel it because the train is so smooth. We want be going on that again! We were a bit apprehensive about Barcelona as we had been told lots of stories about how unsafe it is. We even bought...
