Gabbi and Massi

Following Tommi’s visit, Gabbi and Massi decided to come across with Ami and Imogen. A busy couple of days……

No sooner had Gabbi and Massi got out of the car and it was off to the pool and Pirates Adventure where Massi found quite a bit of treasure. Gabbi, Lynn and Imogen enjoyed the pool, jacuzzi […]

Couple of days with TJPJ

Our nephew decided to come across for a few days in between his holidays, days out with friends and the beginning of the football/rugby training sessions. Busy life eh! He’s only 13 but managed to book the train from Newcastle to Carlisle then onto Oxenholm where we collected him.

The first day we went out walking […]

Nathan’s week

Nathan decided to visit us for a week whilst his Mam and sister were in Italy and his dad was busy with the harvest. Although he only travelled from Berwick I think he was struggling with jet lag as he didn’t manage to get out of bed until 11.00 – and that was only because […]

Day trip to Wasdale

Wasdale is a very hard place to get to even if you are in the Lakes as you need to head out west and then around the perimeter of the National park before entering the valley. Possibly because of its inaccessibility and its natural beauty it is a very special place that is the home […]

Fell walking with Ruby

Paul completed all of the Wainrights with various friends but this time around would like to do them with Ruby! Ruby seems quite keen on exploring new hills but we have to hold her back sometimes as she is too enthusiastic. There are 214 Wainrights and Ruby has her first foot on the ladder to […]

Cathedral Cave

Cathedral Cave is in Little Langdale just near Wetherlam and is a cavern that is left from a slate mine. It is only accessible via a tunnel. You access the tunnel from a path just south of the Three Shires Pub, this then opens into the main chamber which has a great column in the […]

Steaming!

Today we went to see an exhibition of old Steam Engines at Flookbrough thinking there may be a couple on show but it was a massive gathering of steam engines, classic cars, classic motor bikes – infact anything that was old. There were also some people exhibiting some very weird collections – see the pictures […]

Boys weekend with Nathan

Our nephew Nathan decided to have a weekend in the Lakes with us. He was in the middle of his radiotherapy, still had some medical lines inserted into his chest, had a clinic at 4.00pm on the friday and needed to be back at school by 8.45am on the monday morning. Despite this we did […]

What’s happening in Lakes

The Lakes are billed as the adventure capital of the UK and there is something on virtually every day and a lot of these things are free.

To begin with the very name suggests lakes where you can fish, canoe, kayak, go canyoning, you are also surrounded by the fells and you can go walking anytime […]

Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby

We also now have a new addition to the family, a working cocker spaniel called Ruby. She loves the Lake District, probably more than Jesmond due to the freedom she has there. Paul is spending quite a bit of time training her so that hopefully she will be able to accompany him shooting when the […]

The English Lake District – a new direction!

We don’t have any long distance travels booked for the foreseeable future as we have had something of a change in our personal circumstances, no we haven’t gone bankrupt, got divorced or even developed a fear of flying.
We have bought a second home across in the Lake District and intend spending as much time as […]

Tuscany

// Although both of us have travelled quite a lot in Italy over the years, neither of us have been to Tuscany. So courtesy of Jet 2 we flew directly to Pisa, picked up a car and drove to San Gimignano where we had a lovely apartment and from here visited Pisa, Sienna, Florence, etc.

The Dalesway

The Dales Way is an 84-mile (135 km) Long Distance Footpath in Northern England, from (south east to north west) Ilkley, West Yorkshire to Bowness-on-Windermere, Cumbria.

The Dales Way passes through two National Parks: the Yorkshire Dales National Park and the Lake District National Park. The first half of the walk follows the River Wharfe upstream to the main watershed of northern England at Ribblehead. The second half follows several river valleys (Dentdale, River […]

Honduras – Roatan

// Honduras has the highest murder rate in the world, according to the United Nations, with 87 killings per 100,000, while San Pedro Sula is the world’s most murderous city which was confirmed to us by an American who’s friends father had been abducted, held to ransom and then murdered only a little while before […]

Honduras – Copan

We decided to give Tikal a miss as some travellers we met en-route said it was a bit like a theme park and instead headed for Copan in Honduras. This was good for us as ultimately we were heading for Roatan via San Pedro Sula. After paying our $3 entrance visa fee we crossed the […]

Whats more it is surrounded by massive volcanoes one of which is currently belching smoke! During the first night there was a tremor from the […]

Guatemala – People & Markets

The most famous of all the markets around this area is Cicicastenaga and is apparently the biggest in Central America.

Guatemala – Lake Atitlan

A short flight from Managua and we were in Guatemala City. We had a driver arranged to meet us at the airport.  He was busy getting his shoes shined as he’d driven through the night from Honduras to meet us so we had to call at his house first to pick up his clean laundry […]

El Salvador

When we were in Costa Rica the volcano called Chaparrastique erupted for the first time in 37 years. This is right next to the town of San Miguel and the route that we would have taken to cross the sea from Nicaragua to El Salvador.

Costa Rica – Arenal & Monteverde

//

The drive in from San Jose was 6+ hours so we booked a plane transfer to La Fortuna/Arenal as we did not fancy a long transfer again. So north west to La Fortuna and the hot springs. On the flight, which was on a tiny prop plane, we saw an inverted double rainbow which […]

Costa Rica – Tortuguero

//
Our first port of call in Costa Rica was San Jose.  We stayed in a beautiful finca/coffee plantation with lovely views over the Central Valley.  Finca Rosa Blanca is a really quirky place and our room was fabulous.  We did the coffee plantation tour so what we now don’t know about coffee we could […]

Panama

Panama is obviously famous for its canal but is a lovely green country with beautiful beaches and rain forests also. The old city of Panama is being restored and is very atmospheric. But the main reason we visited was to see the canal and indeed transit it, which we did on Xmas day.

San Francisco

Pacific Coast Highway – North Section

For us this started after San Simeon and this is where you get the really dramatic coastline. We headed past the colony of elephant seals, but only saw juveniles as the mature males were all at sea.  What we did see, however, was a stand off between 3 squirrels and a bull snake that was […]

Joshua Tree National Park

The Joshua Tree NP is stunning but again nature was causing problems with some roads washed out and campsites shut due to flooding.  All the trails in the east were shut as the floods had uncovered ancient Indian relics but more worryingly arsenic and mercury mine spoils!
Consequently there was a bit of a scrabble for […]

Pioneertown Village

Death Valley

Despite Death Valley having had flash floods we were assured by a Cal Trans road-worker that the main roads were open so we headed in! The place we booked to stay looked like a car park! So we by-passed it and headed up north towards Scotty’s Castle where we found a great camp site, Mesquite […]

High Sierras & Bodie Ghost Town

Yosemite

Before we got to Yosemite we looked on their reservations website and realised there was only one place left in the valley available for 3 consecutive days, so we booked it. What a place! right next to the river with a beautiful view of the surrounding mountain.  We couldn’t believe how lucky we were! We […]

Gold Country

Lake Tahoe

First long drive of the trip to Tahoe and what a drive.  At one point crossing through the Sierras we reached over 7,000′, well higher than anywhere in the UK!
A loop around Lake Tahoe is roughly 60 miles and takes an awful long time but is more than worth it for the beautiful views.

Bhutan – Tigers Nest Monastery

Last day in Bhutan and they have kept the best until last. Tigers nest is a 700m walk uphill to the most stunning monastery that we’ve ever seen, thankfully the weather was kind to us. We had a delicious lunch, then had a tour of the kitchens! See video below coming soon……

A wonderful day today travelling from Thimpu to Punakha via the Dochlu Pass at an altitude of 10,000 feet+. Scenery en route was stunning and at the top of the pass there’s lots of small stupas and a botanical garden with thousands of prayer flags. The road was a bit tortuous but worth it […]

Just outside of Kathmandu but a world away in terms of noise etc. It’s one of the nicer areas to visit and the air is generally cleaner! Bhaktapur is a really nice, quiet chilled place.

Kathmandu has changed since I was last here, it’s dirtier, noisier and more polluted, but still you can get all your trekking gear for pennies.
