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 [...]
Our second trip to Dubai! We first went in November 2007, this time was always going to be different.
Foe & Erin moved here in October and we decided it was time to go and say ‘hello’. We booked flights on a whim as they were dirt cheap and popped along. During our last [...]
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 [...]
Continuing to post my favourite photographs taken since I started this blog.

Thie Blog was written on Wednesday night when on the plane home. I’m sorry if it sounds a little grouchy, you’ll see why…
We are now 37,000 feet high just north of the Gulf of St Lawrence, Canada. I really should be asleep now but the kind couple behind me have decided to bring [...]

I left you on 6 October with stories of wedding & Concorde, the next day was Karen’s birthday and I surprised her with a [...]
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 [...]
I’ve regularly made the point that as we’ve jaunted away to the likes of Amsterdam, Barca, Madrid, Prague etc we really should make the effort to Pendolino down to our own capital for a holiday. It’s all very well getting the 7.05am train from Manchester in order to have some worthless day in the [...]
