Birmingham Air-Rail Link

As many others have done before me, I filmed the Air-Rail Link journey as we headed back. The system is fully automated, departs almost every two minutes, and feels swift enough not to add additional stress.

Greenwich Foot Tunnel – London Highlights

Greenwich foot tunnel is a pedestrian tunnel connecting the north and south sides of the River Thames. I was thrilled to be able to cajole our little band to walk to and through the tunnel over to Greenwich.

Barbican – London Highlights

I was not sure what to expect from the Barbican in London. The name rang a bell but I had never been nor did I know much about the site. As it happened we were close by and curiosity got the better of me.

Victoria and Albert - London Highlights

Visiting the V&A was squarely at the top of our must see places in London. The V&A is unlike any other gallery or museum I have ever had the pleasure to visit.

British Museum - London Highlights

The British Museum is a showcase of treasures from the once expansive British Empire. As with many of London’s attractions the building itself is worth a visit to see.


London continues to delight. We were lucky enough to recently visit friends living in Canary Wharf.

First Snow

It started with a little flurry of flakes that were barely visible through the windows. Within a few hours the snow had started falling continuously. The size of the snow flakes varied during those first few hours but settled as the evening drew in.

Flying the Flag in Tetbury

Tetbury is an English town in the county of Gloucestershire. We stopped for a brief visit on our way back from Westonbirt Arboretum.


The blanket of morning frost is beautiful.

Westonbirt Arboretum

We enjoyed a walk in Westonbirt Arboretum near Tetbury, UK. The Arboretum has wide paths and open spaces amongst the trees.
