21 Jan, 2018 in London

During my last visit to London I stumbled upon a great exhibition at the London Film Museum – Bond in Motion, featuring lots of vehicles from the 007 James Bond movies. Each car had the Bond scene it was from, with an explanation about the car features. Beyond that, an extensive collection of all things […]

3 Oct, 2017 in Cambridge

On my last day in Cambridge, during a gloomy rainy day, I made my last stop at a local ‘attraction’ to visit the Cambridge University Botanical Gardens, which was close to my B&B near the train station. It started out gloomy, but ended up fairly sunny, which somehow got my mobile camera to over-correct and […]

11 Jul, 2017 in Bristol

Had the pleasure of visiting the Bristol area twice briefly in the past year, and each time was a different time of year showing different aspects of the Bristol charm. The first time, it was autumn-winter, the next spring-summer. I previously wrote about the lovely Clifton Suspension Bridge and Observatory and the intriguing Underfall Yard […]

19 Mar, 2017 in Bristol

In 2001, I had a plan of visiting a friend in New York, with a British Airways flight stopping over in London. Then, 9/11 happened, and all flights to New York were cancelled for almost three weeks, leading to my first ever out-of-the-blue backpack trip through England. I had visited the UK before that, London […]

6 Mar, 2017 in Bristol

Quite a few things to see and do in Bristol, and in my short visit there I was able to cover quite a few of those. My favorite was the Clifton Suspension Bridge & Observatory area, and from there I headed south towards the waterline, so see the Underfall Yard and Spike Island, two local attractions […]

5 Feb, 2017 in Cardiff

Visiting Cardiff in Wales on a daytrip from Bristol, I only had plans to visit the Cardiff castle, but ofcourse it turned out that Cardiff has a few more gems to offer. The central pedestrian area of the old town leading to the castle is quite pleasant, but an even nicer surprise was my quick […]

18 Jan, 2017 in Bristol

Quite a few things to see and do in Bristol, but there’s one spot that I liked the most – the Clifton Suspension Bridge from the mid 19th century connecting the two hill separated by the Avon river. It is a gorgeous area, and the views from the bridge down towards the valley and river […]

Central London walking tour United Kingdom Britian (5)

Last winter I took a weekend trip to gloomy London to relive old memories and revisit old familiar spots. I spent a day walking around central London and the main sites. Join me for a walk?   Westminster Abbey…     St James’s Park…     Piccadilly street…     Piccadilly Circus…     Towards Trafalgar Square… […]

8 Jan, 2016 in London, Visions

The nice thing about living in the center of Western Europe is that all the big cities are within reach. A 3 hour train will get me to Paris, Amsterdam, or Frankfurt, and in 4 hour I can be in London. A few weeks after moving here I decided to test it out and give it […]
