Just as the title says, and in that order. I used to live in a little town in Germany called Bad Lippspringe, affectionately shorted to ‘Bad Lip’ by the Brit community. Bad Lip was home to the Arminius Spring or Arminius Quelle, a water source said to have healing properties. I’m not so sure, I… Continue reading A Revisit, A Review & A Rant

Hello, September. The end of August into early September has been a busy time. I’ve said goodbye to Mr THL, who’s deployed for six months following fourteen days of isolation. I’ve said hello to the alarm clock, school runs and routine. As much as I’m missing the Mr, I’m really enjoying the routine of normal-ish… Continue reading Church Pics and Champing Tips
It’s no secret that I am quite fond of an old church to mooch about in, and even fonder of a good old graveyard. I love a good graveyard. Imagine how chuffed I would be, then, if I could be the guest of a church for a night. My very own church and my very… Continue reading Sleeping Over In A Historic Church: Champing.
Geography has never been my strong point. I’m not great at plotting routes or reading maps and my ability to identify geographical features is limited to say the least. So if you’d asked me a week or so ago to define a desert I would have said something along the lines of ‘massive, scorching, dry,… Continue reading Day in the Desert @ Dungeness, Kent.
2020 is shaping up into quite a year, isn’t it? I don’t think anyone can say it has gone to plan! Last weekend being a case in point. This year is a big one for us. Big birthdays, fifteen years of marriage (well done, Mr THL!) and our eldest daughters graduation. The original plan involved… Continue reading Finding Narnia in Oxford
Not much of a title, is it? Couldn’t think up a better one so I’m going with the does-what-it-says-on-the-tin variety. A blog post, from me to you, about three German hats. Well, one turned out to be Austrian. I’ll get to that. I have lived in Germany twice, with a brief stint in North Yorkshire… Continue reading Three German Hats
I’ve written a couple of posts recently thinking about the future of travel and how things might be different post Covid-19. It’s hard to imagine how things will be, isn’t it? Let’s not just look forward into the unknown, though. It’s good to look back at some travel memories also. Germany holds a special place… Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Berlin
My last post was about traveling with kindness. If you missed it, find it here. I’d love you to have a read. Thinking about how the Covid -19 crisis would change the travel industry inspired that post. Every aspect of our lives has been affected. The world isolated and locked down. The travel sector, dependant… Continue reading Goodbye, Fast Travel?
I feel like things are looking a little more hopeful on the travel front this month. The idea that we could be travelling again one day soon seems possible. It’s a good feeling. But everything has changed. Travel can no longer be the care free, fast and bustling business it was before. The industry is… Continue reading 5 Ways to Travel with Kindness
