Town Yetholm Norton meeting

So the annual meeting starring the mighty Tay Valley, Edinburgh and Northumbria branches has come around again so it must be September, unbelievable its been a year since the last one. We set off after work on Friday only to be confronted with rain, wind and crazy...
Alto de las Piedras

Alto de las Piedras

Three is the number when it comes to archaeological sites visited around San Agustin and Ismos. The third site, Alto de las Piedras is basically a small site with eight outdoor exhibits only, but still interesting enough to spend some time around. Here as well there...
Żurek and Wściekły pies

Żurek and Wściekły pies

From Kiev we will make our way east to Poland, but take a few days instead of going on the highway. The first day was 418 km to Rivne, but via Korosten and Sarny. The road surface on the E373 was very smooth. The driving here was civilized and trucks pulled over to...
Bald in Australien – und dann?

Bald in Australien – und dann?

Nun ist es tatsächlich soweit! Also fast. Dass es buchstäblich bald passiert, können wir selbst noch kaum fassen. Aber wartet ab, in ca. zwei Monaten werden wir tatsächlich einen neuen Kontinent betreten: Australien! Gerade buchen wir Flugtickets...
Ardnamurchan

Ardnamurchan

This weekend we are normally in Belgium for the Begonia Rally but this year for a variety of reasons we couldn’t go so we decided to spend the bank holiday weekend in Ardnamurchan. Pressures of work (yes I know ridiculous!) meant we left on Saturday to head up...

Camping in the Ardennes

A tent, a sleeping bag and an a “crazy” aunt ;-).   All the ingredients for a fun week in the Belgian Ardennes.  This past week I -Nicole- was in the Belgian Ardennes with family. It was the first time camping for my nephew (11) and niece (8). We had to...

Italia and into France

Italia and into France

We stayed in Palermo two days and did a lot of walking exploring the old town, there are some amazing bits of Architecture and history but I’m afraid its a bit dirty and down at heel, the heat makes some of the city’s less appealing smells more pungent. From a tourist...
Home to Dubrovnik

Home to Dubrovnik

We left home Thursday, referendum day after Fiona finished work and blasted down to Durham our culinary needs refreshed by what I though was a bizarrely placed Indian restaurant at a service station on the A1. No dramas and up the following morning to find out...

Fellow Overlanders

This was another unexpected publish from the L.I.F.E (Litle Indian Family of Explorers) our companions and friends through the Nepal earthquake. We met the Baid Family on line while we were trying to organise our China crossing. A crazy dream that Anad  (the...
