We went to Madrid in a large group (around 12 of us I think) in June 2004. Barcelona gets a lot of the press and cheap flights but Madrid is more then a worthy home for a few days.
This is a picture of the Cervantes Monument, where we spent our final day with [...]
The centre of Krakow immediately reminded me of Prague with its style and huge market square. Indeed, the centre itself is listed as a World Heritage Site.
We went in May 2008 and I would like nothing more than be able to tell you about how it has traditionally been one of the leading [...]
Karen & I had planned a weekend break in Amsterdam in March 2005 but we got to Manchester Airport only to be told all flights to Schipol were cancelled due to the snow in Amsterdam. Karen was ready to give up and go home but as we had time off work and we were at [...]
But apart from the sanitation, the medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh-water system, and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?

Finally, I’ve been to Rome. It’s been firmly at the top of places I wanted to visit for many years now. [...]
Since the last blog not a great deal has happened; sure, we’ve had the occasional Guy Wednesday (Including a GW on a Tuesday!) and the skiing has been great but there’s nothing that has happened this week that you haven’t read several times over in my fifteen Tignes blogs so far; except, perhaps, Karen causing [...]

The first newsworth event is the arrival of newlyweds Northern Nigel & Northern Marie who are staying in Val d’Isere with [...]
A couple of Mondays have passed with no blog. It’s been the usual combination of laziness & alcohol I’m afraid but with so much coming up it’s necessary to catch up.
I left you on 6 October with stories of wedding & Concorde, the next day was Karen’s birthday and I surprised her with a [...]
Following my very brief post with the picture of the Flying Vibrator ((c) Stuoobs) many people wanted to know what we were doing in Liechtenstein. After this the general follow up question is ‘Where is it?’ Many have heard of the place simply because England have played against them in a couple of qualifiers but [...]
Again, it’s been a couple of weeks. It seems that I’m just too damn lazy, I will try harder. Promise.
The first Blogworthy thing is our trip to the south of France in sunny Nice. We decided to get away for a weekend for our anniversary and after a quick scout on Sleazyjet Nice represented [...]
So, it’s official – Iceland is amazing. I should say, “Don’t read this – just go,” but that would defeat the object of having a self-indulgent blog.
We got up on Tuesday morning in order to go dirt biking. The weather was crap, even for Iceland, it was very cold and raining. As it was [...]
