“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.

Photos from a trip to Switzerland. Interesting clouds over lake Geneva and the mountains, catching the sunset. And the fork at Vevey.
Like the edge of the world. A photo Taken near the lighthouse on Caldey Island, a short boat ride from Tenby in Pembrokeshire.
