Legends – edited by Robert Silverberg

Published by Voyager Pages: 380 Goodreads Here we go, back to the books. I bought this book at the market in Cardiff. I had a little time to myself and instead of going straight back to the hotel I was wandering around looking for a shop where I could buy some magnesium sachets. I’d been […]

England and Wales

I’ve made up my mind to get back to scribbling about books next week, this means this is the last about my travels. If you want to read more just ask and I’ll reconsider based on your request. We flew into Heathrow and took the train out to Paddington Station where they have Welcome to […]

And another break from books

I’ll get back to scribbling about books soonish, promise. I mean, that is the premise behind this blog but I seem to have digressed quite a bit this year. We did it again. We went away without telling people. Mostly without telling people. Only this time I was prepared and had something scheduled to publish […]

Trier 2018

Like Luxembourg it also has some Roman roots but in this case Trier was a key Roman village and it shows. We’d needed to do laundry in Luxembourg but couldn’t find laundrette so had to do enough washing by hand to get by until Trier. I don’t recommend washing by hand unless you have a […]

Luxembourg 2018

We stayed at the Hotel Simoncini. I mention this because of art gallery next door which you could enter either from outside or the hotel itself with some of their works were exhibited throughout the hotel. It was good and the staff was good, also the breakfast but let me digress back to the actual […]

Brussels 2018

Hello, Brussels! We stayed in a hotel on the FoodSquare Grand Place (that’s where Google Maps says it is). It was a great area to stay in. We had lots of food places just downstairs including a couple of places with some good coffee and useful breakfast foods. This was one of the hotels without […]

Brugge 2018

Brugge was beautiful. Like Amsterdam it is built on and around canals. We had a lovely boat ride and it’s something to do I’d firmly suggest if you’re there. But back to the beginning of Brugge. Having walked the 1.3 km to our hotel we found the keys wouldn’t work. We left the hotel staff […]

Antwerp 2018

Antwerp was an amazing city. We stayed in one of the city squares. The railway station took up part of one end with the entrance to the zoo a pebble’s throw from there on the corner of the square. There was also a ferris wheel and a gorilla statue. On another side was the Koningin […]

Amsterdam 2018

The few nights we had in Amsterdam were nowhere near enough. It is an amazing city. There are so many museums you’d probably need closer to two weeks to see them all. There are certain places you need to book well in advance as they book out very quickly.  If you’re planning a trip there […]
