The Travels Page

 

Welcome to the collection of stories from our travels

 “Baby boomers”, “empty nesters”, “silver surfers”, call us what you will. We travel, when we can and where we can.

Maybe it's just a local day trip, enjoying a meal and a walk by a canal. Perhaps it's a long haul to Hermanus, or a quick week in Switzerland. Wherever it may be we enjoy finding places where we can do the out of the ordinary.

Life is a journey. We aim to enjoy it in nice places, eating good food. Join us on some of our travels.

Where do we Travel?

Living in England we take the opportunities we can make to see this land where we have made our home.

Family and roots take us to southern Africa from time to time.

Europe is a big attraction for an odd week or weekend away.

When do we travel?

Preferably when there are no tourists and holidaying families.

How do we travel?

At home we are not above spending a few hours in the car just to go somewhere different. The train is a good plan too, sometimes, especially when London is a short train ride away.

Budget airlines do feature, but thoughts are moving to more trains!
