By | April 10th, 2012|England, Travel|

Sometimes even the best laid plans do not come to fruition.  Literally 5 minutes walk from my girlfriends house are not one, but 2 coach services that would take us all the way to oxford and back within a day for roughly £20 each.  That’s not half bad and for ages we’ve been saying ‘one [...]

By | March 1st, 2012|Grenada|

After just two nights in Lance Aux Epines we were sadly moving on.  I could have stayed at the Cassa Bella much longer, but there was more of Grenada to see.  Now when I say more of the country, I don’t necessarily mean the same island.  The country of Grenada as the world knows it [...]
