So, it’s day 6 of my first big tour of the season and we’ve done London!... we’re just sitting on the train at King’s Cross for the 4.5 hour journey to Edinburgh where we stay for 3 days before continuing our tour of Scotland till the 24th. London’s been fast and furious as usual but the group seem to have enjoyed it – the highlight with this group seems to have Stonehenge, but many of them said how much they loved Bath during our day trip there from London.
I have a fairly heavy duty customised tour starting this Thursday with a few days in London followed by almost 2 weeks touring around Scotland, visiting some places which are fairly off the beaten track as far as standard tour itineraries go. So I've been trying to brush up on my Scottish history, and I've just started watching the BBC's "A History Of Scotland" which I managed to find on Amazon.
Thanks for stopping by my new website. Over the past 21 years I have travelled extensively in the UK, and in Ireland since 2006 and my aim with this blog is to promote British and Irish destinations from varying perspectives. The concentration of my travel is between late February and early August and during this time I will blog about various destinations on topics such as accomodation, attractions, conferencing, local culture, shopping and a huge amount of other subjects in the hope that you might find something which draws you to visiting those destinations. If there is somewhere or something specific you'd like me to blog about, I'd love to hear from you - use the contact form to let me know. If you'd like to follow my blog, you can use the RSS feed. Hopefully I'll have a tripadvisor profile within the next few months, and once this is ready I'll update the link on the right so that you can see people's comments about the service I provide as a Tour Director and Guide.
Whatever brings you to my site, I hope that you find it to be a useful resource, and I would love to hear your comments!
